Wow! Pretty colors! Let me know if I can help in any way. The cargo scene is one of my hobbies! If it includes Cessna's, Piper's, and Metro's - I'm in! (What sort of FP's does Ultimate Traffic have for those aircraft?)
Thanks a bunch Christian, I'd be glad to have your help!
They also had Beech C99's and I need a good DC-9 paint for it, alongside the ones mentioned.
Ultimate Traffic shows the 'Piper Light Aircraft' (it does not clarify exactly what kind) operated sporadically over the US, in places like northern California, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Arizona, Kansas, Texas and New Mexico. Most of the routes are not linked and mostly operate between two or three airports within the named states.
It shows the 'Cessna Light Aircraft' (again, it does not clarify exactly what kind) operating sporadically over the US also, but it shows up a bit more in the east (Georgia, North Carolina, etc.)
The C99 operates sporadically in the western US.
The Metroliner operates a single route in south Texas, looks like Corpus Christi to San Antonio.
The Shorts SC-7 just sort of operates randomly it seems.
The SD-330 operates a single set between airports in the Ohio valley (Marion, IL; Wilmington, OH; Charlottesville, VA and Lynchburg, VA)

Experienced at doing things I am inexperienced at.
It sounds like Ameriflight handles that Metro, and those "light Pipers and Cessna's." More than likely a Navajo or a Lance/Cherokee 6. The Cessna's too - maybe a Cessna 402. The Beech C99's could be Ameriflight or other random companies - Majestic, for example. (Various paints are available for these aircraft - including an ABX C99.)
Cessna's operating around that part of the world could be Ram Air Freight. They operated out of NC, VA, GA, SC, and so on. Cessna 402's were their biggest aircraft, I think. Piper Lance's, Seneca's, and various other types would be acceptable.
Air Cargo Carriers may operate the pair of Shorts' . They fly into VA and WV a lot in real life. In KROA, we see one on Saturdays for the UPS packages. They usually stay up near KCRW and go back to KSDF or KILM, in this case. I know there is a big package of ACC Shorts' 330's and 360's out for download. No SC-7, however, is painted in ACC colors.
Looks like a lot of pre-Ameriflight ops before they went out on their own, per se. Did ABX have YS-11's in 2003? I'd love to see a good set of FP's for them.
One thing about ABX is their hub: KILN - has no real good scenery. I'd love to take on that airport but I have no good photography of the area. (Unless someone has a good scenery in mind...)
Air Cargo Carriers do have a few Caravan's flying around nowadays - the SC-7 would have been it's 2003 counterpart. I would like to see some YS-11's and a good KILN scenery... I wonder if one of those vintage aerials websites would have KILN?...

chasensfo: You're welcome for Avianca. I want to do Aces but there is not a SINGLE repaint done I can find of any aircraft of theirs...

fernbe: Ah yes indeed. South America 1998 has a terrible lack of 1990s repaints on modern models, with the only exceptions being Brazil, Uruguay and Paraguay.
Aug 18, 2021 6:07:08 GMT -5
chasensfo: Yep...those are the countries we have done so far. Lol. For some reason no one bothered to do mid 1990s for most of South America, just early 1990s, if at all.

chasensfo: Brazil was my main focus anyway since it had the most commercial and military aviation on the whole continenent, it is kind of shocking how few flights the Colombian, Chilean, Argentine, etc carriers had compared to VARIG, VASP, TAM, and Transbrasil!

fernbe: Now I see why you're so obsessed with Brazil and Japan in the 1998 AI Project lol. The answer is easy: Talented repainters from these countries and a lot of good data and information.

fernbe: Welcome to Retro AI Group! Here we have multiple choices for retro repaints and flightplans, but I recommend using Brian's 1983 AI Project or Chasen's 1998 AI Project. Both have lots of high quality flightplans and repaints.

carolinanumber1: Thanks Chasen for all your work..Stay safe at the "bay" I left my hear in SFO in 72/73...great city!!

chasensfo: I wouldn't say "so obsessed" as much as if someone wants to paint an airline or make scenery for an area (Raphael has even made custom objects to backdate Tropical Sim Brazil scenery to 1998), then I make the plans. Ranmori and Rapahel get what they want

chasensfo: Thanks carolinanumber, I do love it here though I've been living in the SJC area for a while my family is and friends are still in SF and I'm there often. Love flying around the area more than most places I've been since

chasensfo: Pretty busy with work these days but the following 1998 airlines are very close to release: Yunnan, China Northwest, Alaska(+commuters),Canadian mainline, Northwest

chasensfo: Also lots of scenery including the Yunnan base at ZPPP and several other airports in China like ZGGX, and also YYZ, SIN, WMSA (old Kula Lumpur) and several US airports close to finished
