FSX/P3D USAF Douglas C-124A 2nd Strategic Support Squadron. This is a repaint of the Douglas C-124A in USAF colors. The freeware Douglas C-124 for FSX by Jens Kristensen (JBK) is needed for this repaint. C-124A Serial 49-241 was part of the 2nd Strategic Support Squadron (the "Globe Girdlers"). This squadron was stationed at Biggs AFB and they were equipped with C-54 Skymasters. They were redeployed to Walker AFB in Rosswell NM, waiting for delivery of their first C-124A (serial 49-235), which arrived on July 17 1950. Interestingly, it was the first C-124 delivered to the Air Force for operational purposes. They received 4 more C-124As in August. However, in 1951 the squadron was subsequently transferred to Castle AFB in Merced California, and eventually reassigned to the Air Materiel Command as a Logistics Support Squadron. As for C-124A 49-241 it was retired from service on Feb 13, 1967 and sent to the 'Boneyard' at MASDC in Arizona.. Textures are 32bit DDS. This repaint was tested on FSX-SE. It should also work on FSX, and P3D v1-3. By Ted Giana.
