Circa 1940 UAL textures for the default DC3 as "Mainliner San Francisco", one of the first DC3's put into service by United Airlines on the Los Angeles to San Francisco route in 1937. By Dale De Luca.

I should point out that this repaint is not totally accurate. The default DC3 does not have both right and left wing bmps nor does it have both right and left side rudder bmps therefore it is not possible to add serial numbers or airline logo on the wings or rudder. The livery is accurate in other respects. I hope you enjoy my repaint.


  • Unzip DC3K4CX.ZIP to a temporary folder. You should find you unpack a folder 'Betsy'.
  • In your 'Flight Simulator 9/Aircraft/Douglas_DC3' folder, make a copy of the folder 'texture'.
  • Name it 'texture.UAL.
  • Within your download, you'll find a folder of the same name. Move the contents to the new folder you have just created and overwrite as prompted.
  • Back up your AIRCRAFT.CFG file (found in your 'Douglas_DC3' folder).
  • Open AIRCRAFT.CFG with a text editor. Paste the following under your last [] entry:

[] (....change this number to the next in sequence)
title=Douglas DC-3 United Airlines
ui_variation="United Airlines"
description=United Airlines purchased 10 Douglas DSTs and 5 DC-3s beginning service on the Los Angeles to San Francisco route on the first day of 1937. In February of 1937 they introduced the DC-3 on the New York to Chicago route. The DC-3 I repainted is "Mainliner San Francisco" in the livery used by United Airlines in the late 1930s and early 1940s. This particular DC-3 was sold to Bonanza Airlines in 1956.

  • Save the file. You're done; she will appear in your aircraft selection menu accordingly.
