  • First, make sure that both the base model and the freighter model are installed on your system.
  • Find the JBK Douglas C-54 cargo folder on your system and copy the folder model.cargo to the folder JBK Douglas DC-4-1009 V2 on your system. Then place the texture.PH-DBZ_1958 folder in the folder JBK Douglas DC-4-1009 V2. (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 in the folder JBK Douglas DC-4-1009 V2 and paste the following after the other, similar sections at the top of the file - replace the x with the next number in the sequence:
