    Default I've Been Looking for a Boeing 767 in the New American Airlines Livery

    Hard to find a freeware American Airlines (new livery) Boeing 767. The ones I have found had one issue or more with them. I currently have an older livery American Airlines Boeing 767 by iFDG/CamSim that flies like a champ and everything works! In my search for what seems impossible to find, I came across 2 repaints that I was really impressed by. Yes, they are iFDG/CamSim aircraft and the repaints were by a fellow named Mohammed Al-Khaalifa. Below is a Thomas Cook repaint for the 767 that I have. I also found a Delta repaint by the same painter. I don't get overly excited about things I run into while searching for other things, but this painter's works, to me, are really outstanding!

    Yes, sometimes that's hard to find a livery one wants. Particularly I knew that a while ago , the AA didn't gave permission to make their livery, if I remember well (IIRW )

    That is an exceptionally good paint for freeware Rick. Personally, the new AA livery doesn't do much for me. I like the older ones better.

    Thanks David, Gerard and Larry!

    The repaints that this Mohammed does is unreal! I also downloaded the Delta repaint 767 that he did! I understand, Larry,
    about the AA livery, old vs new, but I already have the original, I just wanted to add the new to the collection. Oh well, now I have Thomas Cook and Delta to keep the original AA 767 company!

    Thanks guys! - Rick

    Thanks Darren, but, project opensky was one that I had many problems with! The iFDG line is one of the best that I have come across, but I can't seem to find the new American Airlines livery in that line! I restored a Sky Spirit 767 had had loaded couple of years ago. It flies great, but the paint isn't all that great. It will do until I happen upon the download that will meet all my criteria!

    Thanks for the suggestion just the same! Rick

    Rick, are you sure about the Posky one? I'm not a tube man, but I had no problems with it so far...

    Jan - Congrats on your B767, you actually have white paint to go with the livery. I had several downloads that came with gray paint, looked nothing like what American had envisioned for their paint. Also, had several with landing gear issues. The 767 sports the tilted main landing gear. On several of these, the lead set of tires would dig into the asphalt giving more of an appearance of a trencher, not a passenger jet. No problem, let me fiddle with the contact point to correct that, NOT, it only got worse with my "touches!" I gave up entirely on the Posky/Opensky 767's.

    The iFDG CamSim line, to me, was the best of all of them, white paint, no issues with the landing gear!!

    I pulled one of my original 767, new livery, aircraft out of storage to see what that looked like. It is a SkySpirt download, flies well, paint is slightly gray, no landing gear issues. Nav lights dim, aircraft.cfg suggests that most of the standard lighting is built into the model. Let me provide a screenshot, I will be back with an edit of this post.

    As you might be able to notice the difference in paint, gray-ish in the 767 vs a whiter appearance with the 787 iFDG. I know, "Rick has gone off his rocker," maybe so. I am picky about my downloads that I have. If American airlines intended for their paint to be white, it should be white. AND, why does Posky/Opensky have to offer up THEIR aircraft lightings, I see no advantage of their lighting over the standard lighting offered in other downloads. And, when they build their lighting into the model, "What you see, is what you get!" No modifying the intensity of the light, ie

    fx_navred vs
    fx_navredm vs
    fx_navredh

    I shouldn't only pick on Posky/Opensky, as the AFS freeware 767 gave me the most problems with landing gear issues!


    Yes, it all does come down to personal preference, but what I have will suffice until a iFDG 767 repaint comes along.

    Thanks, Jan, I do like your 767!
