Boeing C97G Stratofreighter (new) and KC-97G Stratotanker (updated). Previous installation of basepack "FSX Boeing C-97 V.1 Beta" required. This update includes the C-97G freighter model and modifies the KC-97G tanker model to include a cargo hold and cargo door. All intermediate patches issued so far have been integrated as well, so all you need to make the pack work is an installed V1 Beta basepack. By Roland Berger (testing), Manfred Jahn (models, textures, Monitor gauge), William N. Davidson (testing), Dan McManus (technical research, VC and panel textures, crew calls) Wayne Tudor (Flight Data Envelope), Ted Wolfgang (sound set).

  • Please make sure folder "Boeing_C-97" exists in your FSX\Simobjects\Airplanes. If not present, download and install the basepack "FSX Boeing C-97 V.1 Beta" first -- it is available from the libraries at Flightsim.com and Sim Outhouse.
  • If your present setup contains any downloaded C-97 paints make a backup copy of your aircraft.cfg. This allows you to add the fltsim sections of your paints to the new aircraft.cfg after installation of this update.
  • Extract the zip to a temporary folder or open it in Windows Explorer.
  • Copy the files and folders at the root level of the zip into your FSX "Boeing_C-97" folder. For this update you should accept "replace" mode on files and folders when prompted.
  • The C-97G livery included is entitled "Boeing C-97G Stratofreighter 30272".
  • When flying the aircraft for the first time you may be prompted to accept some gauge modules as trusted software.
