peer01 Posted August 7, 2018 Share Posted August 7, 2018 (edited) The Fairchild C-82 "Packet" made it's first flight in 1944. It was designed as: Cargo carrier, Troop transport, Parachute drops, Medical evacuation, Glider towing etc. etc. The first prototype was very under powered and the air frame was inadequate for heavy loads. Fairchild quickly made a re-design that would overcome all the initial problems. There was no mass production but it became the base for the C-119 "Flying Boxcar". After their military careers, many were used as civil freighters. TWA used one as a flying work shop and transported spare engines with it all over the world. The last civil C-82 was retired in the late 1980's FSX Gold Edition including Acceleration Freeware FSX updated C-82 package by Michael Pook, original by Daisuko Yamamoto Freeware FSX Northern Cook Islands scenery Freeware HDE-V2 clouds Freeware Drzewiecki grass textures Here's the TWA Packet visiting the Northern Cook Islands for a rendez-vous with an airliner with a "broken" engine: Please click on the pics to enlarge The rest of the flight in the reply******* Edited August 7, 2018 by peer01 [sIGPIC][/sIGPIC] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
