This is a repaint for the Alphasim/Virtavia F-8 Crusader to represent an F8K, Bu. No. 145557 of VMF-321 based at Andrews AFB in 1972, and flown by Lt. R.W. Reid. This paint was part of the original package but has been updated and uses the later squadron code (MG) and star pattern. By Dave Quincey.

Unzip the file to a location of your choice. Copy and paste the 'texture.VMF-321' folder into your 'Alpha F8 Crusader' directory and open any complete texture folder from that directory. Select and copy ALL the files in that folder and paste them into the 'texture.VMF-321' folder; DO NOT OVERWRITE when asked! Finally, copy and paste the following into the 'aircfraft.cfg' file, after the last [fltsim] entry:

title=ALPHA F-8 Crusader VMF-321
ui_type=F-8 Crusader
ui_variation=F-8K VMF-321 Andrews AFB MD 1972
description=� ALPHA Simulations 2005\n\nIn 1953 the F8U-1 Crusader won the Navy competition for the new carrier-based day fighter. It flew supersonic on its maiden flight in 1955. A Crusader set a national speed record in 1956 by flying over 1000 mph, for which it won the Thompson Trophy. In 1957 Major John Glenn flew an F8U non-stop from Los Angeles to new York, setting a transcontinental speed record. In 1958 Vought received the first Certificate of merit ever awarded an aircraft manufacturer by the Navy Bureau of Aeronautics for the design, development and production of a US Navy aircraft. In the Vietnam conflict the Crusader had the highest kill ratio over communist jets of any Navy aircraft. The F8U series enjoyed a long service life which was extended in the 1960s by remanufacturing and updating existing aircraft. Crusaders flew in Navy reserve units until 1987, and the French navy flew its Crusaders well into the 1990's.

Replace the [fltsim.xx] with the next number in sequence and save.
