I am still engaged in perfecting these files but am now almost satisfied. The only remaining issue I am aware of is that the serials on the nosewheel doors should be placed centrally. That having been said, a C-121C of the 76th Transport Squadron approaches and lands at Al Pingel's new Charleston.
And then parks just before cutting engines. Al's sceneries come with dedicated ai traffic files and visible here is that appropriate to the base of 1957. There will be others. Traffic here was set at 50%.
And here is the civilian terminal, very kindly converted from his FSX scenery by Dan French. This is work in progress. The only time I use a Cessna is when placing scenery.

Here is the latest screenshot. Al has now incorporated hangars which are not conversions from FSX but have been specifically made for this scenery and for FS9 by Dan French. At a very late stage in terms of the aircraft repaints I noticed an aerial photograph (Marson, i. 49) taken perhaps from a helicopter to mark the 100,000,000th man hour of work on the Constellation series. Lockheed assembled a number of aircraft for the purpose and the distinctive pattern on the wings, now visible here, appears on the VC-121E, a MATS R7V-1, a Seaboard and Western L-1049D, the L-1049 prototype and the two electronic warning type L-1049s visible. It looks therefore as though it may have been very common among military L-1049s and probably the factory finish. It was featured in the repaint of the 1955 MATS R7V-1 by Frank Gonzalez and my texture is developed from his (which correctly bore MATS on the upper and lower wings). Tom has kindly confirmed that it will be acceptable for me to publish this with Frank credited as co-author and the paints added to the Frank Gonzalez Memorial Repaint Project.
