SGA, for their wonderful MD-83.
I take no credit for any of this.

1.) Copy and paste (or drag and drop) the enclosed
"fx_smoke_f6" file into your FSX "Effects" folder.
(It is probably there already).

2.) Open your MD-83 "aircraft.cfg" file, scroll down to
the [SMOKESYSTEM] section, and erase it. It does not
work in FSX.

3.) Copy and paste the new enclosed [SMOKESYSTEM] info.
found below back into your MD-83 "aircraft.cfg" file,
replacing what you just erased. Then click 'file',
then click 'save', of course.

4.) Press your "I" key while flying your MD-83 in FSX and
enjoy the smoke!
