The VC-121E, was the only version of its kind ever built. This was President Eisenhower's personal plane between 1954 and 1961. Mrs. Eisenhower christened it Columbine III in honor of the official flower of Colorado. It was retired from presidential service until Eisenhowers resignation in January 1961. It remained in service transporting government officials and visiting foreign dignitaries throughout the world until it was retired in 1966. By Justin Ziesenis.

This is a Columbine III repaint of Mike Stone's Super Constellation. Although this repaint was designed for his model it can be used on different ones to some extent (not recommended unless you know what your doing,) and can usually be done by renaming the similar files.

Some updates to this repaint in respect to others include:

  • Enlarging the Columbine logo on the nose to a more scale size than others seen.
  • Edited the alpha textures to gice the fuselage a shinnier look without adding it to the text and logos.
  • Added the captain and name to the repaint just like the real one did.

Errors I have yet to fix:

  • Not exactly for sure which one but one of the landing gear doors is gray instead of chrome. No idea how to fix this. If you know please share with me.

To use this repaint:

  • Obviously you've unzipped it so I won't tell ya to do that.
  • Move the texture.comumbine folder to your L-1049 main folder.
  • Open your panel.cfg. Wordpad is easiest if you have never opened one before.
  • Paste the text below in right after the end of your last flightsim entry.
    (It should look like this.)
