About This File
FS2004 Slick/Aviation Traders Douglas C-54A. This package contains two repaints for Jens B. Kristensen's Douglas DC-4 and C-54 v3.0. One repaint represents Resort Airlines' C-54A (modified to DC-4 standard) N65142 while on lease to Slick Airways from 1 July 1959 till 30 June 1960 for military charter flying (Logair) for the U. S. Government. After having returned to Resort Airlines she was placed in open storage at Oakland, CA. The other repaint represents the same aircraft in her British ferry markings she carried in July 1961. Around 1961-62 five ex-Resort C-54s which had been stored at Oakland for some time, ranging from several months to 6 years, were rescued by Aviation Traders (of Southend and Stansted, England) from the scrapdealers axe and converted to ATL. 98 Carvair car-ferry and cargo aircraft. N65142, which was in a very poor condition after her Logair period of minimal maintenance and repeated overloading, as well as the abuse by the elements during the open air storage close to sea water, was one of these lucky birds. These are textures only. You will need Jens B. Kristensens FS2004 Douglas DC-4 and C-54 (DC4_V30.ZIP). Repaints by Maarten Brouwer.
