Plz read the readme file. It clearly states that u hv to unzip them in any temp folder then copy the texture folder into the tagret foler.

All instructions are briefef with every download. Plz go through carefully

As long as it is an FSX download and not a texture it should be there.
Check under the manufacturers name.

U also hv to modify the aircraft.cfg are u aware of that???

OK here's what u have to do step by step to download a 747 for example:

1. Download the 747.zip file

2. Unzip the file to get the texture and readme

3. Copy the texture folder into FSX\simobjects\airplane\747-400

(for a different aircraft select the appropriate folder)

4. Open the readme with notepad and u'll find somethin called as

<flight sim.x> etc......

copy that entire strech.

5. Open the aircraft.cfg u can find this in FSX\simobjects\airplane\747-400 and paste it after the last variant and change x with next no in the sequence.

6. Save and close the aircraft.cfg and u should get the aircraft.

Try this"

After you get a aircraft downloaded, Right-click the .zip file and select OPEN, This will not .zip the file but it'll show you whats in the .zip file, when you get inside the.zip file. look for a file called readme.fst, or just readme.txt, then read that text file. IF you can get that far then you are in business.

If you have the C-17 that in FSX miltary section, then I can help you with that one.

That's not a usable link, you see it because you are signed in or have a cookie. I just get Photobuckets home page.

From what I see, there is .zip files in Microsoft Flight Simulator X>Simobjects>Airplanes. They shouldn't be there at all. not even the copied files. You have to extract the .zip files into a folder (preferrably the same name of the aircraft) then take the folder and and copy it into Microsoft Flight Simulator X>Simobjects>Airplanes.

I would move all the airplane .zip files to a temporary directory, and right-click aircraft.zip file, then select OPEN (this will not unzip it) there you can see a install.TXT file or similar file, and that should tell you how to install the planes.

I have F22thunderrptor, PM me and I'll help you out.

When you Right-click the raptor.zip file with OPEN does it match this.
