This update allows for a shiny aluminum effect not present in earlier versions. It is suggested that GLOENVTS.ZIP be downloaded. Copy the two files in it to the main FSX texture folder and overwrite those present. Original files are contained in the download that you can copy back into the texture folder if the new ones prove unsatisfactory. This US Air Force aircraft was piloted by a World War 2 fighter pilot who postwar flew the C97 and later flew for NASA. These textures are for use with the C-97G Stratofreighter sim (requires C-97BP_UPDATE.ZIP) by Manfred Jahn and Team Strat, a work in progress. By Dave McQueen.

  • In your main FSX folder, open the "Boeing_C-97" folder (located here: "FSX/SimObjects/Airplanes/Boeing_C-97") Copy the "texture.Jesse" folder from this file and place it in the Boeing_C-97 folder.
  • Add (copy+paste) the [fltsim.XX] information below to the aircraft.cfg -- replace XX with the next highest number in the aircraft.cfg list.

I was one of the pilots of 92607 before I retired from USAF in 1963. I am a friend of Dave McQueen who did the flight sim paint job for me. Dave was still an ATC Controller out of Oakland Center and I was with NASA. Dave said if I would send him a good color photo of my bird he would paint it up for FS9. He did a fantastic job on it. I was also with Tom Gibson and his California Classics.
