Thomson Airways 737-800. Thomson Airways is the largest charter airline in the world. Operating from 22 airports in the U.K. to holiday destinations in Europe, North/South America, Africa, Asia and the Caribbean. This is a repaint in the new livery which has a darker blue on the fuselage and tail, and drops the '' from the logo (based on the repaint of First Choice Airways 757 G-OOBA). Repaint is by Ben Thomson and the model is the original Project Open Sky B737-800W with full animations and features. These textures are in 32 bit. Created for FSX but works with FS2004.

Thomson Airways is the largest charter Airline in the World. Operating from 22 airports in the UK to holiday destinations in Europe, North/South America, Africa, Asia and The Caribbean.
In September 2007, TUI Travel and First Choice Holidays merged. TUI owned, (formerly Britannia airways) and First Choice Airways later merged together to form Thomson Airways in November 2008. Most aircraft are yet to be painted in the new livery which consits of 58 Boeing and Airbus aircraft.
Thomson Airways will be the European launch customer of the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

Installation Instructions:
This is a complete install. The Project Opensky 737-800 model is included. The panel and sound are from the default 737-800. Unzip the folder directly into your Aircraft folder. //FSXrootfolder/Simobjects/airplanes.
When you start FSX, look for the aircraft under the manufacturer Boeing, a type of 737-800 and variation of 'Thomson Airways'.

To use this with FS2004 you will need to edit parts of the aircraft.cfg file, and change the sound and panel .cfgs to the alias of the default boeing 737-800.

Within the aircraft folder is a folder called effects. Please copy the files within this folder to the /Effects folder within the fsxrootfolder.

Project Opensky and its talented people for the B737-800 model and paint kit,
Martin Wright for the indispensable DXTBMP utility program,
