A repaint of Derek Palmer's DH104 Dove in the colors of All Nippon Airways. ANA operates wide-bodies today, but their first fixed wing aircraft were de Havilland Doves. Textures only; requires DH104V2.ZIP. Repaint by Gerry McLaughlin.

All Nippon Airways operated both the de Havilland Dove and its big brother, the Heron. One would imagine there would be lots of photographs of these aircraft available, but in fact I had great difficulty finding any, and those that I did find were not the best for obtaining fine detail (like the Japanese lettering, for example) so I hope I have not made any blunders. Originally I had the entire titles on one side backwards, but fortunately I found a photograph of that side and was able to change it. If there are any errors, please let me know. I've never been great at metal textures, but I think I am getting there. I have tried to add a few individual touches - the pilot is slightly more oriental looking than my last Dove, and of course he is now wearing white gloves, which seems to be popular with Japanese pilots (and Hong Kong bus drivers!). If I had an idea what the upholstery had looked like on an ANA Dove, I would have changed it, but the photos were not clear enough.

The Heron photos I've seen showed red spinners, which looked much nicer than grey, but perhaps it was only Herons that had this. Both my Dove photos showed grey spinners, so I made them grey... but I might add red ones to my own personal plane.

Then open up the Aircraft CFG notepad file and cut and paste the following below the previous entry, substituting the next number for the 'xxx'. For example, if you only have one existing texture, it will be [fltsim.0] so you substitute '1'(without the inverted commas) for the entry 'xxx'.

title=de Havilland DH104 All Nippon Airways
ui_manufacturer=de Havilland
ui_type=DH-104 Dove
ui_variation=DH-104 Dove All Nippon Airways
atc_airline=All Nippon
description=A repaint of the DH104 Dove in the colours of All Nippon Airways, a Japanese domestic airline (at that time).
