My thanks to CR1 for allowing me to test all the Beta examples of this aircraft.


Open the CR1-Ford Trimotor folder in FSX > SimObjects and copy either of the default texture there. Paste it back and rename the folder texture.Grand Canton Airlines. Open the texture.Grand Canyon Airlines folder in the zip and copy the contents of it to the texture.Grand Canyon Airlines folder and overwrite when prompt.

Copy and paste the below information into the CR1-Ford Trimotor aircraft.cfg below the last entry and change the ** in each to the next appropriate numbers.

description="Nicknamed the "Tin Goose," the Ford 4-AT Tri-Motor pioneered early airline and air transport routes. In 1925, the Ford Motor Company bought the Stout Metal Plane Company to gain rights to the Tri-Motor design. In all, 198 Ford Tri-Motors were built. During its years of regular service in the late 1920s and early 1930s, the Ford Tri-Motor helped popularize commercial flight and promote the safety of flying to travelers."
