I have completed the addition of 1955 world wide AI traffic to my AI package. To get all the new traffic and liveries, you will need to download all of the files 1 - 9, except for #3. Many of these new planes and liveries are used in 1957 and 1959 traffic as well.

Note that if you use any other classic AI traffic (MATS, Helicopters, Ocean Stations), just copy them from your CalClassic Traffic 1957/scenery folder and paste them into your CalClassic Traffic 1955/scenery folder. I will get those packages updated eventually, but that will work for now. Do not copy/paste the Traffic_1957.BGL or TrafficWorld_1957.BGL files.

1. Save your existing aircraft.cfg files by renaming them aircraft.cfg.bak. 2. Install the AI package files. All of your extra liveries will not be removed. 3. Rename the new aircraft.cfg files to aircraft_default.cfg. 4. Rename the aircraft.cfg.bak files to aircraft.cfg. 5. Add the new fltsim sections from the aircraft_default.cfg files to the aircraft.cfg files.
Note that this is only needed for the AI aircraft that have custom changes. The others do not need this.

Glad you like it.
Assuming all your customization was using HQ aircraft, there is a table of aircraft below the links for files 1-9, and that lists which ones include HQ aircraft. Look into those folders, and look to see what the HQ model is called (usually model.gp or model.mj, etc.). Then do a search in the plane's aircraft.cfg file for gp, mj, etc. - whatever the model folder was named. If you find some, then that cfg file needs to be saved.
Just wanted to say thanks to Tom and Mike. Downloaded and installed files 1-9 excepting 3 without any problem. In 1955 there are no jets(I barely remember those days). How could we have known that just as piston engines were powerful enough to carry the payloads and have the range that a growing airline travel system would need their days were already numbered. A short time for glory.
Just want to acknowledge again how wonderful this traffic is. I have a particular fondness for 1955 as it's the year that I popped into existence and flying in that year has often been my era of choice in FS.
That said I was a bit worried when departing Anchorage on Northwest Orients Flight 1, Connie service to Tokyo from the 1956 schedule and the only traffic at PANC was MATS. However arriving at Hanida found me landing right behind the AI Northwest 1 and RJTT was crammed full of AI traffic to goggle at. So the installation of the new traffic went off as intended at the second attempt, with the first install bungled by a problem encountered between chair and keyboard. Outstanding work and many thanks again for it.
