This is a repaint of the MAAM-SIM passenger DC-3 in a specially commissioned livery for the 2009 DC-3 World Rally, organised by the team at DC-3 Airways VA. Thereafter, you can keep this lovely lady as a souvenir of how well you flew! Requires a base install of the FS2004/2002 R4D-6/DC-3A package available from Mid-Atlantic Air Museum Simulations. Can be used in FSX with the upgrade files available. This livery is also available for the default FS2004 DC-3 as WR9_FS9.ZIP. By Mark Beaumont, VP Fleet, DC-3 Airways.

  • You must first have installed the R4D-6/DC-3A package from MAAM-SIM.
  • Now, unzip wr9_maam.zip to a temporary directory of your choice.
  • Using Windows Explorer, find the folder ....\Flight Simulator 9\Aircraft\MAAM-SIM DC-3 Passenger\ (or ....\fs2002\\Aircraft\MAAM-SIM DC-3 Passenger\ if you are installing to FS2002).
  • Make a copy of the folder within named "texture.ual".
  • Rename it "texture.wr2009".
  • Move the six files in the correspondingly named texture folder within this download into ....\Flight Simulator 9\Aircraft\MAAM-SIM DC-3 Passenger\texture.wr2009\ and overwrite. If you prefer to use the DXT3 files for your external textures, move those files from the folder 'DXT3 texture' at this time and overwrite once more.
  • Back up the AIRCRAFT.CFG file in the 'MAAM-SIM DC-3 Passenger' folder. Then in the original, under the last [flightsim.xx] entry but above the [General] section, copy and paste the following:

title=Douglas DC-3A DC-3 World Rally 2009
ui_type=MAAM-SIM DC-3 - Passenger
ui_variation=DC-3 World Rally 2009
description=FS2004/FS2002 DC-3 World Rally 2009 repaint by Mark Beaumont based on the DC3A Passenger model by Mid-Atlantic Air Museum Simulations. All details of the Rally are available from organisers DC-3 Airways at www.dc3airways.com. IMPORTANT!!! Set Realism to Max. To operate this aircraft, refer to the User's Manual with instructional videos on the MAAM-SIM R4D/DC-3 CD as well as the detailed kneeboard reference pages and checklists.

  • Before saving the file, change the [flightsim.xx] number so that it is next in sequence.
  • Save the file. Your new aircraft should now appear in your aircraft selection menu within the sim.

NOTE: This texture set will, of course, work with any variation you might have configured of the 'MAAM-SIM DC-3 Passenger' aircraft. Hence if you have, for example, configured a folder with my modified 'IFR' panel for this aircraft, simply add this texture set to that folder instead, in the manner described above. Use the 'UAL' texture as the base, however.
