Royal Air Force impounded four Bf 108s on the outbreak of World War II and put into service, where they were designated Messerschmitt Aldon. DK280 was formally a civilian Messerschmitt Bf108B-1. It was a demonstrator, owned by the British agents for Messerschmitt, which had been imported by H.J.Aldington, the proprietor of AFN Ltd. This Taifun was first used by the RAE at Farnborough in connection with the tests carried out there on the Bf109E. The aircraft was impressed into the RAF on the 17th April 1941 and received the RAF serial DK280. It was allocated to the Maintenance Command Communication Squadron (MCCS) at Andover. Its undercarriage collapsed on landing at Weston Zoyland, was repaired and brought back on charge on 30th September 1943 with the same unit. It finally crashed (engine failure?) at Boughey Hall Farm, Colton, near Rugeley in Staffordshire on 20th July 1944. It was finally SoC as Catagory E2 on 17th August 1944.

Installation:

1. Copy the file "texture.DK280" into the "Classics_Hangar_Bf108B_IFR" folder in your FSX application (i.e. c:Program FilesMicrosoft Flight Simulator XSimObjectsAirplanesClassics_Hangar_Bf108B_IFR).

2. Copy the files "texture.canopy_darkearth_[2048/4096]" into the "Classics_Hangar_Bf108B_Textures" folder (By default, the textures with a resolution of 4096 will be applied. You can change to the lower resolution by replacing the string "4096" with "2048" in the file "texture.DK280/texture.cfg")

3. Add the following to the file "aircraft.cfg" (Make sure to change "xx" with the next number in sequence before saving)
