    MS_FSX_B-26_Ole_Smokey.zip


    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category FSX Military skins - WWII

    Description: This repaint is created for specific use with the Milton Shupe FSX Native Martin B-26B/C Marauder. It represents Martin B-26B-20-MA Marauder 41-31720 "Ole Smokey " of the 557th BS, 387th BG, 9th USAAF , Chipping Ongar, Essex, UK, late spring 1944, piloted by Capt. James C. "Horizontal" Brown.

    A member of Ole Smokey's original crew was Lt. Clifford F. Baily, Bombardier/Navigator, who happens to be the grandfather of SOH member BrittMac. This one's for Lt. Brown!

    Model by Milton Shupe. Paint Kit and Repaint by Steve Bryant.

    Thank you jj! I'm really embarrassed over the write up though. Lt. Brown was indeed the pilot of the original crew and we owe them all our gratitude. However, since BrittMac requested the paint in memory of his grandfather, Lt. Bailey, I intended to thank Lt. Bailey specifically as a dedication of the paint. Man, I FUBARed big time. Can't edit the readme because I won't be at my PC for a couple days.

    Anyway, thanks again jj, and thanks to all the courageous and heroic crews who regularly flew these machines in to harms way.

    Maybe I can help out, always happy to honor a fellow airman. Since I too, have Bailey relatives, Duckie (and I) would like to thank Lt. Bailey for his service flying on "Ole Smokey" during WWII as the Bomb/Nav. Those aircrews were, indeed, the finest men of the "Greatest Generation". God bless them all....
