This is a repaint of Rob Richardson's Convair F106A to represent 59-1045 of the US Air Force 48th FIS, Langley AFB and flown by Capt. Bill McNelis in the early 1980's. The folder contains the major texture files plus a reworked '106 three bumpmap' file to give less dramatic riveting on the tail. Note that the wing texture files can be copied into the 'texture. 101st' folder to correct some errors. Also includes a corrected thumbnail for the 101st repaint as well. By Dave Quincey.

Installation:

The folder contains the major texture files plus a reworked '106 three bumpmap' file to give less dramatic riveting on the tail. Unzip the 'F-106 48th FIS' file to a convenient location and then copy the 'texture.48th' folder to your main Simobjects/Airplanes/Convair F-106A directory.

Note that the wing texture files can be copied into the 'texture.101st' folder to correct some errors. Also I have included a corrected thumbnail for the 101st repaint as well.

Paste the following lines into the original aircraft.cfg file.

First, the tail number of that particular aircraft is 0145, not 1045. The crew chief (a cross trained weapons loader) at the time of this picture was Wegeman, who recently retired. Incidentally, I was flying the aircraft in most of the pictures and also served as the maintenance officer for the squadron at that time.
