  • Go to the UIRES folder in your main FSX directory, back up the AIRPLANE JPEG file (in case you find you prefer it after all).
  • Copy and paste the AIRPLANE.JPEG file from the downloaded folder to the UIRES folder, overwriting the old one.

The archive has 7 files and directories contained within it.
