Registration G-AGJC, c/n 1209, entered service with the RAF as MW113. It was part of a fleet of five early Yorks that were configured as a combination of passenger/freight with 12 passengers seated in the rear of the cabin. Some sources indicate that shortly after WWII two Yorks were painted in an almost 'inverted' BOAC color scheme and used by BOAC for crew training, mainly navigators. G-AGJC was one them. Textures only; requires AVROYORK.ZIP. Gmax exterior model and paintkit by Manfred Jahn, FDE by Paul Edwards, repainted by Hans Hermann, Virtual Birds Factory.

Installation in FS2004:

  • First, make sure the Avro York Base Package is installed on your system.
  • Find the Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator 9\Aircraft\Avro_York folder on your system and place the texture folder (texture.gagjc_01)there. Additionally, copy the folder model.moyd if it is not already present from some earlier download (see NOTAM below).
  • Use a text editor such as Notepad to add the following section to your Avro York aircraft.cfg file following the "fltsim" sections already present and replace the xx by the next number in sequence:

[fltsim.xx]
title =Avro York M24 gagjc_01
sim = Avro York Merlin 24

description = G-AGJC with c/n 1209 entered service with the RAF as MW113. She was part of a fleet of five early Yorks that were configured as a combination of passenger/freight with 12 passengers seated in the rear of the cabin. During WWII these aircraft were allotted to BOAC inaugurating the first UK-Cairo route via Morocco on April 22, 1944. At this time they were coloured in RAF wartime camouflage colours. Some sources indicate that shortly after WWII two Yorks were painted in an almost 'inverted' BOAC colour scheme and used by BOAC for crew training, mainly navigators. G-AGJC was one them. Possibly most of the flying was done at night - star sightings presumably work better then! In some weird way, their role may have had a bearing on the colour scheme. According to other sources both Yorks may have been painted black.\n\nGmax exterior model and paintkit by Manfred Jahn, FDE by Paul Edwards, repainted by Hans Hermann, Virtual Birds Factory, March 2007.

prop_anim_ratio = 0.99

NOTAM:

Unlike some other Avro York repaints this package uses an advanced model file of Manfred Jahn created for a better texturing of the nose cone area. So for these textures to work the folder model.moyd (included in this package) must be present. This package also comes with suitable nightlight textures.
