"IF" .... anyone's interested .... the above AIR NZ and ex-AIR NZ DC-8-52 textures are now available from HJG and per the groups December/Christmas 2019 website update of 2 days ago .....HJG's DECEMBER/CHRISTMAS 2019 WEBSITE UPDATEhttp://tonymadgehjg.proboards.com/threa ... llTo=64824
These above presented textures .... and their supporting aircraft base packs (3D models and FDE) too .... are both FS2004 native and FSX portable.
The supporting DC-8-50 panels and gauges/core files (2X versions of DC-8-50 panel are offered by HJG .... both non-INS and INS featured) are both FS2004 native and FSX portable ....
The customized FS2004 engine startup routine (GPU and air assisted) may not work as prescribed "in FSX", but, using the standard FSX default engine routine will more than adequately suffice.
"Separate" FS2004 and FSX version customized P&W JT3D-3B sound packs (these are all recorded .... both externally and internally .... from these actual actual aircraft .... even faithfully capturing the distinctive/classic DC-8-50/-61 startup "howl" although I suspect most here are probably too young to have ever heard or let alone remember it
) are also available ....DC-8-50 P&W JT3D SOUND PACK DEMONSTRATIONS (FSX):

Excuse Benoit's "missed approach" in the above demonstration videos
.... the result of wind shear at the last/worst moment, but, the "safest" response under the circumstances
ALSO: Be aware that the AIR NZ textures featured within the above video/s are HJG's old/original versions .... which have all since been "REDONE" with far greater "QUALITY" and "ACCURACY" than those offered prior to 2015 ....
All major variations of AIR NZ livery (from 1965 until 1986 .... there were quite a number of adjustments to these within this period) applicable to both the DC-8-52 and -54F are represented as such.
Each of these files are available from the following HJG Downloads pages ...."DC-8-50"
.... all textures"DOUGLAS PANELS"
.... both panel options and theire required/supporting "PANEL GAUGES/CORE FILES""DOUGLAS SOUNDS"
.... both sound pack options and which are separate "FS2004"
specific files customized not only for the P&W JT3D-3B engines, but also, for the sound engines of both FS versions.
Compliments of this festive season to everyone on behalf of HJG .... whom "might" also have a wee bit more to offer (in addition to its December/Christmas 2019" website update of 2 to 3 days ago") and "prior to" Christmas.
Just see how we go for time.
