  • Unzip the contents of this file to a temporary directory.
  • Copy the folder "texture.Buffalo" 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 Buffalo Airways
ui_variation="Buffalo Airways"
description=A livery found on one of the DC-3s flown by Buffalo Airways of Yellowknife, NT Canada.

  • 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].
  • I also suggest you disable the tail number at the aircraft selection screen in FS9 as it interferes with this particular paint scheme. I have placed a permanent registration number on the aircraft.

I have looked all over for the Buffalo Airways DC3's Repaints and finally found not one but two of them here! Thanks so much! PS I even contacted Buffalo Airways via the Internet to see if one of there pilots had the textures for their sims but had no luck. Now I won't have to spend the time and effort creating one of my own. Thanks again!
