Hauke Keitel released a beautiful rendition of the Piper Arrow (PA28R201T), which had a problem with window transparencies during night-time, when panel lighting is turned on. There has already been a fix for that, which, unfortunately produces distracting environment reflections in the cockpit windows. This new patch avoids this problem, and also comes along with an improved texture for the rotating prop. By P. Luerkens.

First, make backup copies of the BMP-files which are referenced in this package. Then replace all BMP-files of the texture directory of the aircraft to be patched by the new  versions. The default prop-texture is for red-white prop-tips. In the subdirectory "H-USCH - N1309H" a texture for white-grey prop-tips is included.
