File Description: Still fresh from their days with the American Volunteer Group in China, whose P-40s were adorned
with shark's teeth, the founders of Flying Tigers perpetuated this theme on their recently purchased
C-47s. This Bill Larkins photo was taken at San Francisco in 1946. FTL operated approximately
a dozen or so before gradually acquiring the more capacious C-46s and later C-54s.
NC59699 (c/n 13061) was an ex C-47A-20-DK, USAAF serial 42-93178 civlianized in 1946.
When sold by Tigers it went to India as VT-CTZ.
This is my first ever repaint for FSX. It could have been nicer, but the paintkit is hell to work with, with overlapping parts of fuselage and severe warping, asymetrical overlapping and mirroring on the nose textures. Included are repaints of the VW van, interior headrests with Tiger Line logo and stewardess.
