Two repaints for Tim Conrad's T-33 A to represent USAF front-line squadron 'hacks' used for a variety of ancillary roles including target towing, liaison and familiarization. The first depicts 57-0592 of the 57th Fighter Interceptor Squadron based at Keflavik AB in Iceland from 1975 to 1985, as it was photographed in the Bicentennial year 1976. The second depicts 57-0547 of the 81st Tactical Fighter Wing based at Bentwaters AB, UK, as it appeared in 1965. By Dave Quincey.

Copy the 'texture.usaf' folder from your T-33 folder twice and rename the copies 'texture.Kef' and 'texture.81st'. Unzip the contents of this download into a temporary folder then copy and paste the two folders into your T-33 folder, overwriting files when prompted.

Copy and paste the following lines into the aircraft.cfg file after the last [fltsim.xx] entry:

description=Developed from Lockheed's F-80 Shooting Star fighter, this rather simple trainer conversion went on to be one of the most successful jet trainers in history, with over 5000 made. License production in Canada and Japan added a few hundred more. It's hard to find a nation who didn't fly the T-Bird at one time or another.

Replace the .xx's with the next two available numbers and save.

These files are based on Tim Conrad's original main textures and were made using Ed Wells' highly detailed 4096 x 4096 paint kit. Many thanks to both for this beautiful model.
