While checking AI Traffic Mover it couldn't found the FAA aircraft scheduled with World 1962 traffic. There seems to be no textures in the last AI aircraft updates for DC-3, C-54 and L-749. Nevertheless I replaced them by stearable ones.

Oops, I didn't think that anyone would notice.
That was a little project I did just for me, using flyable aircraft textures on HQ AI models. I didn't have AI aircraft painted up. I will probably get around to painting some, but until then most of them won't fly...

The planes I included in the Classic AI Traffic files, in case anyone else wants to add them. Make sure the texture= lines match the names of your texture folders.
1. CV-580 - already included in the AI package. 2. CV-440 - CV-580 FAA textures used on the AI 440 model. Not used in the 1962 traffic (will eventually be used in 1957 and 1959). Will be included in the next AI aircraft update. 3. DC-6B - downloaded dc6faa01.zip and used the textures on the HQ AI model. Painted by Hans Hermann, Virtual Birds Factory. Aircraft.cfg entry:
[fltsim.xx] title=AI DC-6B FAA sim=Boeing737-400 model=spinner_gp panel= sound= texture=faa_gp checklists= description=The DC-6B was generally considered to possess the best operating economics of any piston airliner built.

4. L-749 - downloaded FAA_N121_01.zip and used the textures on the HQ AI model. Painted by Hans Hermann, Virtual Birds Factory. Aircraft.cfg entry:

5. L-749 - downloaded FAA_N119_01.zip and used the textures on the HQ AI model. Painted by Hans Hermann, Virtual Birds Factory. Aircraft.cfg entry:
[fltsim.43] title=AI L-749 FAA 1959 sim=Boeing737-400 model=mj panel= sound= texture=faa_59_mj checklists= description=This is a Lockheed L749 Constellation.

6. DC-3 - downloaded dc3faa.zip and added it to the CC update of the default DC-3. Painted by Dale Deluca. The aircraft.cfg entry:

I had not done anything to OkCity since installing the 2015 files. But today reading about some additional required files I downloaded them and the FAA area showed up. Nice to see in there the additional hangars and the FAA Academy building where I went through Air Traffic Control boot camp for 2 months (their intent was to wash you out, not teach you anything). At one point I walked over to the FAA hangar and took a couple of pictures of an FAA DC-3. As I recall the FAA hangar was made of brick sides - I'll have to see if I can find the photo. I do not have any FAA textures or aircraft in the sim (other than a few DC-3s in basic FS2004 colors) Can I get those somewhere?
Off topic but this weekend was Jesse Callahan's 96th birthday. Still feisty as ever.

Nice to hear from you again. I gave the download file names in the post above for the FAA liveries, and how to install them.
Please note that only 1962 traffic has FAA aircraft there at the moment; I haven't created 1957 or 1959 AI traffic files yet (since most of these planes are in 1960s liveries). If people don't care about that I can add them to those years too.

It's probably little known that Federal Aviation Administration used Sikorsky H-37A (also known as Sikorsky CH-37 "Mojave") to test helicopter Instrument Flight Rules requirements. This aircraft has been done by David Wooster & Mick and released some days ago at FlightSim.com. This FAA version is flying as AI.
