Immediately after WWII had ended in Europe, KLM director Dr. Albert Plesman travelled to the USA. He visited President Harry Truman and succeeded to persuade the President to have a batch of 18 Douglas C-54A Skymasters delivered from the Surplus Property Board, in order to (re-)establish several medium- and long-haul routes and - from February 1946 on - the KLM Indies route from Amsterdam to Jakarta, then named Batavia. For several reasons, a.o. the sensitive political situation with regard to Indonesia (by then still a Dutch colony called Netherlands East Indies), the aircraft were purchased by the Netherlands Government Air Transport and carried military roundels and serial numbers, although they were used as civil aircraft. Later on they were sold on to KLM and received civil registrations. These are textures only. You will require Jens B. Kristensen's Douglas DC-4 and C-54 (DC4_V21.ZIP). Original textures by Jens B. Kristensen. Repaint by Maarten Brouwer.

NGAT Douglas C-54A Skymaster preparing for take-off.

  • First, make sure that the base model is installed on your system.
  • Find the JBK Douglas DC-4 V2 folder on your system, and place the texture.NGAT_NL316 folder there. (In FSX its located in \Simobjects\Airplanes, in FS2004 it's in \Aircraft).
  • If you have FSX SP2, or the Acceleration expansion pack, copy the two bitmaps included in the \FSX SP2 files folder to the texture.ddl folder, replacing the originals.
  • Then open the aircraft.cfg file and paste the following after the other, similar sections at the top of the file - replace the xx with the next number in the sequence:

title=JBK Douglas_c54 NGAT NL-316
ui_type=C-54A Skymaster
ui_variation=Netherlands Government Air Transport
description=Built a C-54A-10-DC Skymaster at Chicago, IL, for the USAAF (c/n 10312), powered by four 1,350 hp Pratt & Whitney R-2000-7 engines. After WW2 struck off. Sold to the Netherlands Government for use on various medium- and long-haul KLM routes and converted to DC-4 standard by Fokker (still powered by R-2000-7 engines). Later on sold to KLM as PH-TCD. Sold in February 1948 to TAI as F-BELA, then moved in 1954 to Cie. Air Transport and in the same year to Air Algerie. Re-registered 7T-VAA in 1963. WFU and broken up at Algiers in August 1969. A C-54A in the colours of NL-316 can be found on permanent static display at the Aviodrome Theme Park, Lelystad Airport, Netherlands. Original textures by Jens B. Kristensen. Repaint by Maarten Brouwer.

This repaint works both in FS2004 and FSX.
