This repaint represents the livery used by Central Airlines on their DC-3s in the mid to late 60s. This repaint is not entirely accurate due to limitations of the default bitmap.


  • Unzip the contents of this file to a temporary directory.
  • Copy the folder "texture.Central" and paste it into your Douglas_DC3 folder. This should be located in *:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator 9\Aircraft\Douglas_DC3. The * will of course be the drive you have FS9 installed on. For example C:\Program Files\Microsoft games\etc...
  • Copy and paste the following section into the "aircraft.cfg" file of your Douglas_DC3 folder. (Backup your original aircraft.cfg first!)

title=Douglas DC-3 Fly Central
ui_variation="Central Airlines"
description="The Douglas DC-3 revolutionized air transportation and airline service during the 1930s and 1940s. It was a luxury airliner that boasted cabin heat and running water in its on-board lavatory. With the right balance of efficiency, range, speed, and payload, the DC-3 was the first aircraft to earn a profit for its owners just by carrying passengers. The hero of early airlines, a handful of DC-3s are still at work today."

  • The "x" in [fltsim.x] should be replaced with the next number that corresponds to the number of planes listed in the aircraft.cfg. For example: If this is the 5th plane listed in your aircraft.cfg, you would change [fltsim.x] to [fltsim.5]
