Guide to FSInn Installation - This PDF file will help you get started installing FSInn.

Continental Beech 18 Textures

One of my favorite freeware aircraft for FS9 is the Beech 18 by Milton Shupe, Scott Thomas and André Folkers.  There are tons of great liveries available for this airplane, as well as a terrific radial engine sound set.   I've greated a set of textures so that I can fly passenger and freight flights in the Carribean and Alaska, where the rugged aircraft is still often seen in service.   I also created a panel upgrade to take advantage of my Reality XP gauges.  While the panel is now worth more than the airplane, it's a comfort to have modern avionics on those cold and dark IFR nights.

The Passenger version, in appropriate Continental colors.

The new panel is available if you have RXP Jetline 2 gauges, just send me an email.

The gauges work in the VC as well.

The freighter is ready to swallow anything that fits.

Heading out from Miami - next stop, the Bahamas!

The source files for FS9 can be found on Avsim, http://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=69176.
The VC cargo version can be found on Avsim, http://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=70349.
The Amphibian version can be found on Avsim http://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=86557.
The Continental Textures are only available here - please do NOT redistribute them.  While these textures were created using the amphibian version, they will work for the taildragger as well.

Once you have the base package working, simply copy the two texture folders into the aircraft directory and modify your aircraft.cfg file with the contents of the included text file.

Eventually I hope to make a painted version of this aircraft - so keep an eye out for a new versions.
