I've been slowly creating a "world" of 1980s AI traffic. Been going pretty well, but I just ran into a snag where I least expected one.
Working on Delta, I discovered that I can't find repaints for the AI Aardvark 737-200 and 767-200 (old widget scheme). These were such common sights that I never thought I'd have any problem with them.
Apparently they DID exist -- the AI Aardvark site has links to these repaints on AVSIM, but the links appear to be dead. dal_ai.zip for example. So, if anyone has the files and will send them to me or knows where I can find othersI'd be real happy! BTW, they don't have to be for the AI A models in particular -- it's just that they're the ones I've been using up to now.
Another little gap is for a People Express 747 -- but that's a little easier to live without if I have to.

Here's the deal, David is no longer updating the AI Aardvark site, so if Avsim changes their files around, those links go dead. You have to go and seek out the files yourself on Avsim, which can be a pain. I did this myself and here are the file you need to search for on Avsim for the 767:
I did not find the 737, but that was done by Henry Tomkiewicz, and he reads this forum, so maybe he can hook you up with it.
Well, it's amazing what you can find when you have the right people showing you the way!
I found both repaints under the names that you y'all gave. I had spent a couple of hours sifting through files on Avsim and Flightsim both, searching in different ways. Actually, I did try to find dal_ai.zip by name, but in one of my many moments of carelessness, I just used that as a simple search argument instead of using in the filename field of the extended search.
I wan't too wild about putting my e-mail out there for all the world to see -- didn't know about the private message feature. Anyway, I cleaned it up.
Thanks to all who've helped. This is also a great chance to say thank you for hosting this great site and for all the work you do to make the hobby so much more enjoyalbe for all the rest of us. Henry, your name is on MANY of the repaints I've already used and I appreciate the work you put into the project.
