No, it's because I used the fltsim sections from the original package but didn't notice that the E models got an E_ prefix.

I am using MATRIX North America.
Should I add the recent updates "MAIW EAI Boeing 707/E-3/E6 Family V.1.1" and "MAIW MGAI Airbus A330 MRTT - P3D Pack-1 V.1.1"
to my computer, or will there be an update to MATRIX sometime soon that will add these updated aircraft as part of MATRIX?
Thanks!

You should not install aircraft by both Matrix and the standalone packages - this will add the aircraft twice and the sim greets you with countless duplicate title errors.

Personally I use Matrix to install the libraries, szeneries and flight plans, but delete all aircraft in the Matrix folder after each update.
Cheers,
Martin

If you only use North America, you won't need the E-3D and E-3F as those are based in Europe (and being added with the next update of Matrix Europe).

The MRTT Lua script that was missing is going to be added with the next update of the Matrix Global Libraries, so you should get that one shortly. But then again, there are no MRTT's based in North America either...
