FS2004/FSX MAC Douglas DC-7C Package. Thanks to a major investment by some large Dutch shipping companies, the 1958 founded Dutch charter company Martins Air Charter was able to purchase from KLM one Convair 340 and one Douglas DC-7C Seven Seas aircraft. On 27 February 1964 the DC-7C PH-DSO was delivered at Schiphol. In November 1964 and May 1965 PH-DSL and PH-DSC were also bought from KLM. A fourth one, PH-MAK which has not been included in this package, was acquired from Alitalia. The great advantage of the DC7C over the much smaller C-54B were its pressurised fuselage, its huge flying range and its payload, which was almost twice the C-54's payload. It was a very popular aircraft among crew and passengers alike. From September 1968 till late October 1968, PH-DSL, all white with red crosses applied to the wings, fuselage and fin, flew on the Biafra airlift from the island of Fernando Po to Uli airstrip to provide humanitarian aid, on behalf of the Dutch Red Cross. With the exception of PH-MAK which was sold to Spain in 1967, MAC's DC-7C soldiered on till late 1968/early 1969 when they were sold. These are textures only. You will need California Classic's FS2004/FSX Douglas DC-7C base pack and DC-7 base pack. Repaint by Maarten Brouwer.
