NOTE: I have seen some issues in the FSX beta with these textures. If you get an invisible plane, load another plane and then reload this one.


  • Copy the entire folder (texture.alaska) created by the zip into your Douglas_DC3 directory. Depending where you installed FSX, the path might look as follows.
    Beta path: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\Douglas_DC3
  • Find the existing "texture" folder for the Douglas_DC3 and copy all the textures from there into this new directory. DO NOT OVERWRITE THE FILES ALREADY CONTAINED IN THIS FOLDER!
  • Copy and paste the following into the existing aircraft.cfg for the DC 3.

title=Douglas DC-3 Paint Alaska ANG
ui_variation="Alaska ANG"
ui_typerole="Twin Engine Prop"
ui_createdby="Microsoft Corporation"
description="The Douglas DC-3 revolutionized air transportation and airline service during the 1930s and 1940s. It was a luxury airliner that boasted cabin heat and running water in its on-board lavatory. With the right balance of efficiency, range, speed, and payload, the DC-3 was the first aircraft to earn a profit for its owners just by carrying passengers. The hero of early airlines, a handful of DC-3s are still at work today."

  • Replace the "X"'s in the new [fltsim X] headings with the next numbers in the sequence.
  • Save the aircraft.cfg and you're done.
