Lieutenant American Douglas A-1J Skyraider. A repaint of the Tim Conrad's Douglas A-1J Skyraider. These textures represent a USAF A-1H, "Lieutenant America", flown by 1st Lt Randy Scott in SEA during the Vietnam war. These are textures only; requires A-1J_SKYRAIDER.ZIP. Repaint by Russel R. Smith.

Lieutenant America is one of 4 Skyraiders that were flown by pilots of the VNAF to Thailand in the final days of the "Vietnam Conflict".
It has been restored to flight status by the Tennessee Museum of Aviation at Sevierville, TN.


I have enclosed the aircraft config file for the one I use. You can modify the original to pick up texture.America. Extract the files to the "A-1J" folder. The zip file contains all the neccessary files for this texture scheme and are dds files. Make sure "Use Folder Names" is checked so it will create the texture.America folder when you extract the files. You do not need to copy any additional files to the texture.America folder.

The above line is the last line in the aircraft.cfg changes.

If you have any photos of A-1Js or A-1Hs and want to share them with me I would appreciate it.

I would all so like to here your comments concerning the textures. Good, bad or indifferent. A comment would be appreciated.

For Russell R Smith, inre the A-1J Skyraider "Lieutenant America", I have a water-color of this A/C done by the late Bob Doughty. If you haven't seen this version, I bet you'd really like to. I can send you a copy, if you'd like. Robin
