I have installed the Trident 1E base pack, but the textures of British Airways G-AVYE do not show. There is a typo In the aircraft.cfg: "texture=british_airways_1982_1e-140_g-vye". I have corrected this, but it still doesn't show up. Is there something else I must do? Thanks a lot.

"TOKE's" .... can you copy & paste your CFG based FLTSIM.XX data .... just the data for each of the 4 TRIDENT 1E textures only and not the entire CFG.
I need to see exactly what you "currently" have in relation to each of the other textures .... rather than just the BA 1982 subject alone.
You're right .... there is a (minor) typo associated with the registration for the BBA 1982 texture, but even so, as the TEXTURE= data line in the CFG/FLTSIM.XX data and TEXTURE FOLDER NAME for this particular subject both display precisely the same (minor) typo the texture should still display .... regardless .... at least it is for me and by virtue of the earlier preview images.

OK .... now understand you to mean it "is" displaying, but, without any texturing.
Unless the texture folder has been corrupted (very rare but not unheard of) that means the name of your BA 1982 texture folder "is not" in precise agreement with the TEXTURE= data line within the two FLTSIM.XX entries within your CFG and for that particular texture.
Please recheck this .... and failing a resolution on the basic of this advice post your FLTSIM.XX data "HERE".
Hi Mark, thank you so much for your trouble. The "problem" is solved (see my 2nd answer above). Something must have gone wrong during copying since after reinstalling it the texture now shows, and I'm using the original folder name and texture entry! Your original answer prompted me to try that Thanks again.

Looks like we were replying over each other
No problem "TOKE's".
These things can. and do, sometimes happen .... albeit rarely
Enjoy the TRIDENT's .... but .... load'em and try'n fly'em in accordance with my recommended procedures as per SECTION's 5 and 6 of our online and forum based manual.
You'll find the new TRIDENT 1C to be "the most challenging" of the TRIDENTS to fly .... by virtue of its quite high weight and lower thrust rating.
The new TRIDENT SUPER 3B should keep you concentrating too .... by virtue of its very high weight.
If you're using the original DMFS TRIDENT 2E and -3B base packs, then, replace the FDE (CFG's) inside these packages with the new version/s we've uploaded. These new FDE's are separate FDE UPDATE packages/files "hilited in yellow" within the respective TRIDENT 2 and 3 downloads sections.
The new TRIDENT 1C, -1E, and -SUPER 3B already have this new FDE incorporated into their base packs and which doesn't need replacing.
Finally .... use all of these TRIDENT simulations with Benoit's "NEW VERSION" sound packs for each type .... these really put the icing on the cake .... along with George's panel "FIXES" too
The TRIDENT' are a nice simulation to fly. They may not have the climb performance of the B727, but, they're certainly "a lot faster" than the B727 in the cruise .... and their panels feature more up-market kit than the B727 too and especially with their advanced Auto-Approach/Flare/Land system.
