Alphasim C-17 Globemaster III repaints

For no reason in particular, some repaints of Flight Simulator aircraft I worked on last month.  The very detailed original textures were created by Pierre Lherheux and Phil Perrott of Alphasim, for their C-17 Globemaster III product.

For the Charleston bird I modified Alphasim’s 62AW/McChord textures, creating the Charleston tail flash, updating the tail code, and re-positioning the aircraft and wing identifier from the lower nose to the upper nose, just below the cheek window.  This repaint is based on aircraft 07-7182, assigned to 437th Airlift Wing at Charleston AFB, South Carolina.

I also modified the stock Alphasim Canadian Forces paint scheme slightly.  For the CF repaint, I modified all aircraft tail codes / identifier codes to be rendered in the appropriate Canadian Forces font.  (Actually, the font predates the CF and is the same as that used by the former RCAF.)  I also added the missing aircraft identifier on the lower nose, and created versions for all four CF aircraft (177701 through 177704).

Both repaints are available at AVSIM.com and FlightSim.com, but you will of course need to have the original Alphasim package first.
