To install this aircraft:

As always back up any original files.

  • Unzip downloaded folders to your desktop or temporary directory of your choice.
  • Copy the " Metallic Pipe-Dream " folder and paste it in the main aircraft folder:
    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\FSx\SIM Objects /Aircraft

Textures created by Mark "Fire Ball" Rooks and Mary Moo.

WARNING DO NOT OPEN THE TEXTURE FILE: If a Alpha Channel File is opened and not saved back in the same format and same technique the alpha process will be lost. This is a 14 step process, using unique programs developed by RDG. In other words, if you open you will have a black plane because you will destroy the alpha layer.
