Used to Berlin-Tempelhof from 1961. Textures only. A repaint of the default DC3 by Dale DeLuca.

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 and the airline logo on the rudder must be in reverse on one side....sorry about that. The livery is accurate in other respects. I hope you enjoy my repaint.


  • Unzip to a temporary folder.
  • In your 'Flight Simulator 9/Aircraft/Douglas_DC3' folder, make a copy of the folder 'texture'.
  • Name it 'texture.bu.
  • Within your download, you'll find 1 bmp texture named "Douglas_DC3_1_T.bmp". Move it to the new folder you have just created (overwrite existing bmp-file "Douglas_DC3_1_T.bmp").
  • 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:

title=Douglas DC-3 British United
ui_variation=British United
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."

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