Reworked/upgraded textures for the Eckert/Carter/Flahault North American T-6G Texan (for FSDS_T-6.ZIP; need FSDS_T-6UPDATE.ZIP), representing the classic SAAF livery. The SAAF operated Harvards from 1940 until Friday 17 November 1995 when, to celebrate the aircraft's 55 years' service, 55 Harvards took part in a final flypast at AFB Langebaanweg. This aircraft has often been seen on the airshow circuit flying as ZU-BAL. By Grant MacLean.

Although, starting from the model's spinner and cockpit frames working on back thro' texture mapping problems, the repaint isn't a 100% accurate reflection of the real thing, the model's a fine one and seemed to need a SAAF version ...


  1. Extract/unzip the SAAFHVD.ZIP file into a temporary folder.
  2. Move the folder TEXTURE.SAAF to the North American T-6 folder in the FSX Airplanes folder
  3. Copy the text between the asterisks below into the AIRCRAFT.CFG file in your North American T-6 folder, at the end of the previous [fltsim.X] entries, replacing the 'X' in [fltsim.X] with the next sequential number.
