BRITISH AIRWAYS repaint,by Tomi Koivunen
Extract texture.brai to your FSX B737-800 folder and add the following:
title=Boeing 737-800 BRITISH AIRWAYS
ui_type=737-800 BRITISH AIRWAYS
description=One should hardly be surprised that the world's most prolific manufacturer of commercial aircraft is also the producer of the world's most popular jetliner. The 737 became the best-selling commercial jetliner worldwide when orders for it hit 1,831 in June 1987 (surpassing Boeing's own 727 as the previous champ). However, it wasn't always that ways in the first few years of production, there were so few orders that Boeing considered canceling the program. They didn't, and the airplane has more than proven itself in over three decades of service.

The Boeing 737-800 is an aircraft that I share a lot of love for. Having spent many an hour flying on one both in person as a passenger and via simulation as a pilot, I greatly respect everything they stand for. However, this fiction re-paint of the Boeing 737-800 is a nice touch to add to your simulator. While it’s based on a British Airways design that I’ve never seen, it’s nice to see what it would look like if it actually existed.
Made by the excellent Tomi Koivunen, I was a huge fan of the new textures that he had put together. While it uses the same old features and model as the default Boeing 737-800, the new textures are a lovely little touch.
A Must for Boeing Fans
Having new liveries to take to the skies in is a nice touch, and makes it pretty easy to make a flight feel different. Knowing who you are flying for also can make it easier to plan new journeys. Well, how many of you have flown a Boeing 737-800 from BA? This opens up a wealth of opportunities for new, fun and fictional flights to take place.
This is the textures that you need, with the original model already included in your simulator. All you need to do is download the textures, extract the .brai file to your B737-800 folder in FSX. Then, you need to add the following content provided to you by the developer.
It’s easy to work with, and the attention to detail on the design is very impressive indeed. If you are looking for a fun way to make Boeing aviation fun once again, add some new liveries. Small aesthetic changes can be all you need to make a ‘boring’ flight fun again!
Overall, I’d be happy to recommend these. It’s nothing major and hardly re-inventing the wheel, but Tomi has done a great job regardless.
