In order to meet a USAAF requirement for an improved version of the C-54 Skymaster, Douglas proposed in July 1944 a simple development of the C-54E, combining its un-pressurized fuselage with 2100 hp Pratt and Whitney R-2800 C series engines: the XC-112. Soon this idea was dropped in favor of the stretched and pressurized XC-112A. The XC-112A made its first flight on 15 February 1946 and was in fact the prototype of the civil DC-6. Following the first initial testing the aircraft was delivered on 22 June 1946 to the USAAF, designated YC-112A, where it flew 9 years before starting a 21 years spanning commercial career as a DC-6. These are textures only. You will require Jens B. Kristensen's Douglas DC-6 (early version with Curtiss propellers) (DC6_V10.ZIP). Original textures by Jens B. Kristensen, repaint by Maarten Brouwer.

Textures only, require Jens B. Kristensen's Douglas DC-6 (early version with Curtiss propellers) (dc6_v10.zip).

  • Put the folders texture.XC-112A and texture.YC-112A into the folder of your DC-6.
  • Then just paste the text below into the aircraft.cfg file of your DC-6 folder. Don't forget to replace the X into the rotation numbers. (e.g. [fltsim.5] and [fltsim.6])
