This is a repaint of a C97 in early US Air Force Military Air Transport colors. These textures are for use with the C-97G Stratofreighter (C-97BP_UPDATE.ZIP) by Manfred Jahn and Team Strat, a work in progress. Only the modified textures are needed and are included in this file. It is assumed you have downloaded and installed the original files that have the other required textures. By Dave McQueen.
