Here are two skins for the freeware Alphasim F8 Crusader, now upgraded to FSX native by Henk Schuitemaker. They represent two aircraft from US Navy fighter squadron VF-24 during two combat cruises off Vietnam in 1967 aboard the USS Bonhomme Richard, and 1969/70 on the USS Hancock. 146998 is an F-8C from the '67 cruise and 148705, one of 89 F-8D's upgraded to F-8H standard, is off the '69 cruise on the Hancock. By Dave Quincey.

Also included are new burner can files located in the 'texture' folder. Go to the 'texture' folder in the main Alphasim F-8 directory and make backup copies of these four files before proceeding.

Unzip to a location of your choice and copy the three texture folders into your main Alphasim F-8 directory, overwriting when prompted. Open the 'aircraft.cfg' file and copy and paste the following after the last variant entry. Replace [xx] with the next variation numbers ans save.
