This aircraft was built a C-54A-5-DO Skymaster for the USAAF. After WW2 it was struck off and converted to DC-4 standard. Having served various civil and military operators from 1946 till 1981, the C-54A was bought by the South African Air Force on 23 April 1981 as 6906 in order to replace DC-4 6903. In 6906 was sold 1995 to Aero Air (Pty) Ltd. as ZS-IPR. Then bought in November 1996 by the Dutch Dakota Association for spares for its DC-4 PH-DDS. At that time it was the third oldest airworthy C-54/DC-4. The white and blue 'livery' was only meant to ferry the aircraft safely over the troubled continent of Africa. It was kind of improvisation as at the moment the DDA people arrived in South Africa to collect the plane, it was still in the camouflage colors of South Africa which isn't very practical if you have to fly across warzones. On 4 June 1997 this 'bunch of spares flying in perfect formation' arrived at Schiphol, where it was stored and dismantled. Since PH-DDS returned to South Africa, the C-54A is on display from 2003 as NGAT's NL-316 at the Aviodrome, Lelystad. These are textures only. You will require Jens B. Kristensen's Douglas DC-4 and C-54 (DC4_V21.ZIP) and Douglas DC-4 and C-54 freighters v2.1 (DC4CGV21.ZIP). Repaints by Maarten Brouwer.

  • 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_radar to the folder JBK Douglas DC-4-1009 V2 on your system. Then place the texture.ZS-IPR 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:
