The Conair DC-6 Air Tanker is the "heavy lift" aircraft used to fight forest fires throughout Canada and the world. Features red fire retardant drop. Textures only. You will require Tom Gibson's and Greg Pepper's original Douglas DC6A/B, sounds and panel. Repainted by Vern Opperman.

NOTE: This installation uses Ken Mitchell's panel and as such, the model=v2 and panel=vc in the aircraft.cfg file points to his panel according to his instructions. If you do not use his panel then the lines model= and panel= lines have the v2 and vc respectively removed to look like, model= and panel=

  • Download and install the DC6A/B along with the FS2004 update, sound, and panel of your choice. I used the United Airlines version.
  • Move the 'texture.conair' folder to your DC-6 aircraft folder.
  • Copy the following text into your DC-6 aircraft.cfg file in sequential order in the [flightsim.x] section. NOTE THE MODEL AND PANEL NOTE ABOVE.

[fltsim.X]
title=DC-6B Conair

kb_reference=dc6b_ref
atc_id=CF-CZQ
atc_id_enable=1
ui_manufacturer=Conair
ui_type=DC-6B
ui_variation=Conair
description=The DC-6B was generally considered to possess the \nbest operating economics of any piston airliner built. \nPassengers also appreciated their smooth, quiet ride. \nThis DC-6B was probably a CB-17 equipped \nlong range version.
atc_airline=Conair
atc_flight_number=52
atc_heavy=0
visual_damage=1
prop_anim_ratio=0.9

[General]

atc_type=dOUglaS
atc_model=DC6

  • Change the x in [fltsim.X] to the next sequential number.
  • In the aircraft.cfg file find any section called [SMOKESYSTEM] and either delete it or disable it with \\ in front of each line. Insert the following [SMOKESYSTEM] into the aircraft.cfg file:

[SMOKESYSTEM]
smoke.0= 0.0, -3.0, 0.0, fx_largage03_red

  • Copy the fx_largage03_red.fx to your Effects folder.

That's it .. go flying and put out all them forest fires. To activate the fire retardant dispersal, press and hold the "I" key.
