Jump to: Screenshots | Comments | File Details

Splash screen included. This repaint requires the Dash 8 Flyable pack by Braden Peters (DASH8X2.ZIP). By Victor Vu.

Place the Texture.pdt folder into the default DH_Dash_8 folder, then go to the installation text document and copy all contents. Next, go to the default DH_Dash_8 and open the aircraft.cfg, then go to before you end up into the [GENERAL] Section. Last, paste everything and then change the x into a number that is not used (3... or later), then run FSX and choose free flight and go to the aircraft manufacturer to "De Havilland," then look over "Piedmont Airlines..." and there you have it!

Definately would be a lot more fun to fly if there wasn't so much damage...
