But nevertheless: A German pilot ferrying a Turbo-Porter to the USA heard some US Air-force pilots commenting about his Turbo-porter: "Seems the Germans keep their WW II airplanes still in good shape." The Austrian Air-force has quite a number of Turbo-porters and used them for many years like helicopters landing on remote sites and glaciers in the Alps. The AFG PC 12 is still in my "hangar" it flies nicely a pity its not a Turbo-porter. Kind regards Walter

I've just checked both the VISA DC8-53 and DC8-63 texture files ....
.... and you're "QUITE RIGHT".
There "IS" .... indeed .... a problem with the DC8-53 (YV-C-VIC 1967) texture file only.
It does contain textures for the VIASA DC8-63 .... rather than those for the DC8-53
The VIASA DC8-63 (YV-125C 1967) texture is OK though
The interesting thing about this though is that this VIASA DC8-53 texture file error has been there/like this since that particular file was first reuploaded here .... during "APRIL 2006".
Fortunately I have a copy of the original file from around 2004 .... it's one that's never been edited since it was first uploaded back then.
I'll have a chat with our webmaster and see if we can possibly (no promises though) get an emerhency replacement of this file online ASAP .... otherwise .... it'll have to wait until the next HJG website update ;(

OK folks .... Dan .... our websmaster .... has now replaced the original VIASA VENEZUELA DC8-53 texture file (which incorrectly contained a copy of the VIASA DC8-63 texture) with a new/the "correct" file version.
This new/corrected can now be downloaded from the HJG "DC8-50" downloads page and as the following specific file ....

Don't forget to "REFRESH" your web browser (select keyboard commands CNTRL + F5) in order to be able to see/access/download the correct new file version.
"THANKS" Dan .... and appologogies folks for the previous inconvenience
