After the occupation of the Netherlands in May 1940 several KLM DC-3's got stuck in the Dutch East Indies. One of them, PH-ALP 'Pelikaan' ('Pelican'), was bought by KNILM (Royal Netherlands Indies Airways) as PK-AFV. On her last flight on 3 March 1942 from Batavia to Broome, Australia, Japanese Zero fighters shot at PK-AFV and set her alight. The aircraft successfully crash landed on the beach at Carnon Bay, Australia. The repaints of PK-AFV is based on the templates Mark Beaumont created for the MAAM-SIM Douglas DC-3 (passenger version), which were based on Jan Visser's original textures. This repaints has not been tested for FSX but will probably function there as well. These are textures only. You will require MAAM-SIM's great donationware Douglas R4D/DC-3 package. Repaints by Maarten Brouwer.
Just before WWII broke out in Far-East Asia KNILM (Royal Netherlands Indies Airways) operated a fleet of Wright Cyclone GR-1820-G2 powered Douglas DC-3's, both KLM and KNILM aircraft. Unfortunately no MAAM-SIM DC-3 external model exists featuring Wright R-1820 series engines. However, it is possible, with the help of the existing DC-3 passenger model to 'create' a KNILM Wright GR-1820-G2 powered DC-3. In order to achieve this, it is advised to:
- Create a new folder copying the folder MAAM-SIM DC-3 passenger. Name the copied folder 'MAAM-SIM DC-3 passenger (Wright-G2)'.
- Put the folder texture.KNILM_PK-AFV into the folder 'MAAM-SIM DC-3 passenger (Wright-G2)'.
- Then just paste the texts below into the aircraft.cfg file of your 'MAAM-SIM DC-3 passenger (Wright-G2)' folder. Don't forget to replace the x into the rotation numbers. (e.g. [fltsim.1]:
