This DC-4 originally flew with KLM as PH-TAR, named 'Rotterdam'. These repaints feature both the livery just after delivery before the DC4 received her name, and the livery after she received her name. On 21 May 1946 this was the first KLM aircraft ever to fly the route Amsterdam-New York. From 10 April 1947 till 25 November 1948 the DC-4 flew with KLM West Indies Division as PJ-TAR. Already on 13 December 1948 PH-TAR was sold to Iberia. The aircraft was scrapped at Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, in 1975. 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.

  • First, make sure that the base model is installed on your system.
  • Find the JBK Douglas DC-4-1009 V2 folder on your system, and place the texture.PH-TAR_1946_1 and texture.PH-TAR_1946_2 folders 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 numbers in the sequence:
