  • First, make sure that the base model ( is installed on your system.
  • Find the Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator 9\Aircraft\Grumman HU-16 Albatross folder.
  • Unzip the texture.transocean folder in this zip file and copy it to the "Grumman HU-16 Albatross" folder.
  • Using a text editor such as Wordpad open the HU16aircraft.cfg file from this zip file and copy the content into the Grumman HU-16 Albatross folder's aircraft.cfg. IE copy and paste sections that look like the following:

title=HU-16 Albatross N9944F
ui_type=G64 Albatross
description=Span: 96ft. 8in.\nLength: 62ft. 10in.\nHeight: 25ft. 10in.\nCrew of 6 with seating for 10\nEmpty weight of 19,820 lb.\nMax gross weight of 33,000 lb.\nPowered by 2 Wright R-1820 9 cylinder engines with 1475 h.p. each.\nRepaint by Dave McQueen

Using the text editor paste it into the aircraft.cfg file under those sections already present. The first line of each new section has to be changed to be 1 number higher than the one that precedes it in the aircraft.cfg file. For example in the section above if it was placed after the section that read [fltsim.5] in the first line, then the section above would need to be changed from [fltsim.X] to [fltsim.6]. The next one to [fltsim.7] and so forth.
