I've done flightplans for the already released MiG 21's, MiG 23's, Mi-8's & Mi-2's done by Jason Rogers. Everything else I've painted up with the exception of the 2 Il-62's & 2 of the Tu-134's in which all I've done is change the serials from existing liveries, so those will not be released. The military livery of the Tu-134 was done by myself so that one will be included.
Any idea where the TU-134A and Il-62M paint schemes can be downloaded from....hunted usual place to no avail.

Many Thanks

Jim

I can't remember to be honest, I'll try & hunt for them & if I can't find them I'll send them to you

Here's the Tu-134: http://www.avsimrus.com/f/fs2004-ai-tra ... 41837.html

For those who downloaded the recent USAF KC-10's I forgot to add the flightplans in error, so I have attached them here for anyone who needs them.

Admin team, could you add these to the main download in the hangar as well please.

My thanks to Mason (jetpilot1980) for pointing this out for me

Cheers

Just uploaded 2 new packages, 1 is the An-22 pack I mentioned earlier on this thread. I haven't provided flightplans for them this time. I also stated I updated the paint kit, all I have done in essence is up the resolution somewhat so they are much sharper than before. I would've like to add some weathering to them as they were very messy back in the day but that is way beyond my painting abilities at the moment, if anyone fancies a go at that message me & I'll send the revised PK over so you can have a go.

The 2nd pack is only a small one, (6 aircraft) but quite a nice one I reckon. You'll just have to wait & see what that is when the library is updated. I will say it is from the Eastern side of the Iron Curtain though :D

I installed some GDR AI traffic packages. In some flightplans I found entries for waypoints probably like ETX1, ETX2, ... and others.
Where can I find them? Are the part of any MAIW packages?
Thanks

They are found in Menno's Warsaw Pact pack in the Hangar. Just search for 'Warsaw Pact' and you will find it.

Another paintkit request post I'm afraid;

Does anyone have the pk for the MPAI Su-24 they could send me please, I can't find it in the usual places. But my track record of late has been quite poor in that regard so apologies if it's somewhere really simple

I don't think the MPAI SU-24 paintkit was released. I made my own for the MiG-23 and 27's that I painted.

Re: Dans bits & bobs

Hello all, the next project I'm doing is quite a big one, in terms of numbers & aircraft size. I'm planning on doing the USAF C-141 fleet as it was in the late 80's early 90s. I've done quite a lot of the repaints already as I found a website with all the serials on. However what I do need a hand with is what airframe was based where, I know which bases were home to the C-141 fleet but I can't determine what was where. Can anyone help with this one please?

Hi Dan,

Might not be what your looking for.....

But you should be able to match up some of the locations / dates using.

Another option, although I can't remember that far back but the Military Aircraft Markings books by Peter R March had listings for USAF aircraft at the back after the RAF stuff. Loads of different years on ebay again I just can't remember if they always had the USAF listing at the back.

Next project has just been uploaded, it is the French Air Force Jaguars as they were in the late 80s or so. This has already been uploaded in 2 parts & should be available shortly. Along with the retro Bulgarian Air Force helicopter fleet that we forgot about.

The next project I would like do will be some VC/10's & P-3s, however I require the paintkits for them. Does anyone a copy of those they could send over please?

The next project as promised are the US Navy P-3 Orions as they were in February 1988. This is by far & away the biggest project I've done in terms of aircraft numbers so far. I'm not doing VP-26, NAS Keflavik & NAS Sigonella station aircraft as they have already been completed. As it stands I won't be doing the EP-3s either as I don't have a paint kit for them.

Thank you, Dan!!!

I've been hoping (for a long time) that someone would do P-3's in this scheme! My personal favorites are VP-19 and VP-40.

Thank you again for doing this!

Mark
