A repaint of the Avro York in South African Airways colors. The aircraft is ZS-BRA. South African Airways owned at least four of these aircraft. The first flight carrying passengers was on 1st November 1945 from South Africa to the U.K.. Textures only; requires AVROYORK.ZIP. Textures by Peter Tredre.

Copy the "texture.saa" file into the "Avro_york" directory.

This directory should be as follows if a standard installation of FSX has been done: "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\Avro_york"

In the same directory as above, open the "aircraft.cfg" file using a word processor, I use wordpad.

Add the following script to the bottom of the file, noting that the ".xxx" in the line [fltsim.XXX] of the additional script must be the next fltsim number.
I the case of a standard installation replace [fltsim.XXX] with [fltsim.3]. Save the file
