Air Force One Boeing 747-400. Textures only for the default B747-400. Repaint by Garth Caden.

Paste into the aircraft.cfg file, under the b747_400 folder. Go below the section titled [fltsim.6] (If this is your first repaint install, if not, go to the last [fltsim.] heading), and paste the below under neath it, about one or two ENTER spaces down.  Then change the [fltsim.xx] to one number higher than the above [fltsim.6], or whatever the most recent [fltsim.] number was. Again, if this is your first repaint, change the .xx to .7

description="More than 30 years ago, the 747 made its first trip from New York to London. Since then, it's become the standard by which other large passenger jets are judged. Its size, range, speed and capacity were then, and are now, the best in its class. Air Force One textures created by Garth Carden (TheyTookMyWoody)."

Editorial

The world of flight simulation has always been one of engagement and enjoyment. It’s also about experiencing new features and enjoying fresh new improvements introduced via the community. Well, I decided to pick up this awesome FSX Air Force One Boeing 747-400 livery.

All you need to do is copy this into the aircraft.cfg file, under the B747_400 folders. Once in here you need to make some basic adjustments to the file so that it can pick up this livery. However, once managed (and if you install repaints a lot it will be very easy) it’s good to go permanently.

Immediately, I noticed just how detailed and fresh the actual design was. The attention to detail on the new repaint is very successful and showed me a really impressive, fair side to the development. I have to hold my hands up and admit that the work quality goes beyond what I was expecting.

The livery looks great and uses high definition textures to really bake in that right looks and feel. If you ever find yourself looking at your simulator and wishing that you had more liveries, then include this.

Its’ a nice touch that you can turn to time and time again if you want to fly around in a great design. The team have done a good job of getting the color, layout and overall look just right. The Air Force One livery is one of the most popularly followed designs, and when you see it in action here it’s easy to see why!
