DC-3 Airways Douglas DC-3 classic and 1940's liveries. Based on the default DC-3, these fictional works represent two official repaints for the virtual airline DC-3 Airways. They are intended primarily for use by DC-3 Airways pilots. The classic livery continues the great tradition of the FS2002 N1776 by Jan Visser, with certain refinements; offering a timeless livery that would look as appropriate on a 1950's DC-3 as it would today. This aircraft is named "The Charles Wood" in honor of the founder of DC-3 Airways. The 1940's livery is designed to be typical of the simple, yet stylish liveries that adorned the bare metal fuselages of pre and post WW-II civilian aircraft, and is modeled on a civilian-built DC-3, with folding stair door. Includes revised, 'cleaned-up' main panel bitmap by Andy Hatcher. Aircraft repaints by Mark Beaumont and Ian Richardson.

This download gives you two aircraft in 'DC-3 Airways' colours based on the FS2004 default DC-3. These are official 'DC-3 Airways' repaints for FS2004.

The classic livery is intended to continue the great tradition of the legendary N1776, with certain refinements that suit the FS2004 model admirably. The nose of the default aircraft is beautifully sculpted and the livery has been "curved around" the nose to emphasize this. Trim has been extended over the forward edges of the wings, vertical and horizontal stabilizers. Seats and carpets are trimmed in DCA colours. The end result is intended to offer 'DC-3 Airways' pilots a timeless livery that would look as appropriate on a 1950's DC-3 as it would today.

The classic aircraft is named "The Charles Wood" in honour of the founder of 'DC-3 Airways'.

The 1940's livery was created in response to those who suggested that an optional, earlier style would be popular with members. This repaint is designed to be typical of the simple, yet stylish liveries that adorned the bare metal fuselages of pre and post WW-II civilian aircraft, many of which were converted military C-47s. Ours is modeled on a civilian-built DC-3, however, with folding stair door. Microsoft gives us no option in this regard.
