New Zealand Territorial Squadron (TAF) P-51 Mustang. Must have FSX Acceleration and default P-51 racer installed. Complete pack installs into its own folder. By A. Brausch. (See also P51_NZTS_FIX.ZIP).
The TAF had been reformed in 1948 and initially used Tiger Moths and Harvards. From June 1952 the squadrons were each allocated five Mustangs and three Harvards. The squadron aircraft were identified by a chequerboard pattern on either side of the fuselage roundel - 1 (Auckland) Squadron blue and white, 2 (Wellington) Squadron black and yellow, 3 (Canterbury) Squadron red and black, and 4 (Otago) Squadron blue and yellow. The colours correspond to the colours of the provincial rugby teams. The aircraft were used at weekends and during annual camps. It should be noted that at Camps the aircraft operated as a pool - two of 4 (Otago) Squadron's aircraft were written off by 1 (Auckland) Squadron pilots The withdrawal of the Mustangs was announced in May 1955. They were withdrawn due to deterioration of the airframes (officially because of 'undercarriage' problems), although the highest use aircraft had only done in the order of 480 hours. Six aircraft had crashed in the eight months prior to the announcement. The TAF squadrons were also withdrawn on July 31, 1957
In service a total 10 aircraft had been destroyed or written off in accidents. Two had become instructional airframes (NZ2401/INST162 and NZ2405/INST164). One had been damaged prior to assembly and was reduced to spares without being used. The remainder were flown into storage at Woodbourne apart from four aircraft which continued to be operated by 42 SQN as drogue-tugs until 1957. The last official RNZAF P-51 flight was made by NZ2423 on May 30,1957. The 17 surviving aircraft were sold for scrap in 1958. Having been declared surplus (sr.293/57), a Government Stores Board tender was issued (No5296) on April 9. This closed on April 28, and most of the aircraft were sold on May 2. A rough listing of the RNZAF Mustang details can be found here.

This zip contains repaints of the New Zealand Territorial Squadrons P-51 Mustangs. These were split into 4 main areas,..Canterbury,Otago,Wellington and Auckland Terriatorial Squadrons. The repaints use the default FSX P-51_Racer so that must be installed and operational for the repaints to work.
To save on file size I have excluded the Model,and Texture folders so you need COPY and PASTE the folders " MODEL, and TEXTURE from the default P-51_Racers folder into the folder " P-51_NZTS" which is the directory containing your new NZTS repaints.
I have altered the suspension data to make the P-51 sit properly on its struts and have reduced the power a little to make it fly more like a regular Mustang,..I am no P-51 pilot and have set it more on "feel" so please do not email me asking me to make further adjustments on its FDE!.
* Unzip the " P-51_NZTS.zip to the directory "Microsoft Flight Simulator X / SimObjects / Airplanes
** COPY & PASTE the folders " Model " and " Texture " from the default P-51_Racer into the newly created folder " P-51_NZTS " .
*** Start up FSX and enjoy your new NZTS repaints.
