The screenshots look great! I can't get them to appear using AIFP3 or Traffic Tools for some reason. AIFP shows them up in red as not available and when done through Traffic Tools (both for FSX), they don't show, either. Very strange. I do have a reasonable idea with creating AI so wondered if anyone had any ideas of what I might be getting wrong?!
Here's the next chapter in the FAIB 747 saga...... Of note, there is a unique logojet from 1998 (N670US, "World Plane"), of which there are insufficient quality photos, decal sheets, etc., available on the Internet for reference. Except for one decent AIA paint on AVSIM (1024, small-scale), there aren't even any UI aircraft repaints of this for which I could seek author permission to use textures for my paints (I have done this two or three times in the past, with 100% success). If anybody has good source material for the World Plane livery, please email me, and I can get it done.
It would seem that our Lords and Masters no longer allow me to use FS9.I might just as well bin the lot which has cost a hell of a lot.TTIP takes over.Back on FS9,It would seem that Microsoft have cured the problem with the update that scuppered FS9!Hav'nt been able to use it for some time thanks to being hacked.
I didn't even catch the 3-window -151, sorry about that. They were all converted to 8-10 window tops by the late 70s, including the inherited NAL -135s, so NWO solid red tail livery only for this one (only one paint, lol).

chasensfo: People usually reach out to me when they paint late 90s fleets and ask about flightplans

FSX Retro Flyer: Here are my huge and humble thanks to Michael Pearson for creating these magnificent paints for the post-CAAC Chinese airlines!

chasensfo: Hell yeah, and soon the 1990s airports of China will all be open for business

FSX Retro Flyer: The special livery of the 747-100 of Japan Asia has been painted by Michael Pearson some time ago. The repaint can be found on AVSIM here: faib_747-100_jaa.zip

FSX Retro Flyer: Satisfying to see Iberia package being released with all their repaints available! Also, can't wait for SAS and Aerolíneas Argentinas in a near future!

chasensfo: SAS yes but Aerolineas not sure, maybe some other Argentine carriers. Mostly European and US carriers for now unless others make surprises
Jun 30, 2021 10:16:05 GMT -5
chasensfo: China too of course

theflyingmobian: Looking forward to filling up Australia and New Zealand with those Chinese, US and European carriers too.

theflyingmobian: I think at this point the Qantas VH-OJC Formula 1 747 is the only remaining 747 yet to be painted in AI, but I don't think it has plans yet as that was active in 2000 to 2002.

jetstar: G-AWNA was painted up in incorrect BOAC colours when it was WFU, It was broken up in those colours in 1999. If you look closely, you can see the overpainted white where the BA titles were, and the tail is showing the speed stripe underneath the.. see part2

jetstar: Thin paint on the tail. They never did anything with the lower blue though. It was just homage to BOAC's original 747-136 when it was retired. Its a pity is was not preserved. Then again, BA would not pay to upkeep the 707 at Cosford, which was scrapped.

jetstar: Should have said Landor, Doh!
