I was just wondering if someone may be interested in doing the Pacific East Airlines repaint for the AI version of the DC-8-61 CF. I notice that the DC-8-62 is available, but would love to see the 61CF to include in the Retro AI I’m slowly installing into FS9.

The sensible thing would be to do the PEA as a UI texture .... if we don't already have it in -61CF form (and I don't think we do although I've not yet checked).
From that UI texture an AI version could be transitioned .... as has been the case with our other AI DC-8's based on our UI textures, but, AI texturing is "Paul's department" as our whole AI project is "his".

Right airline .... but .... wrong font here .... although "the correct font" does appear on one of the tail drawings within the following link, however, whilst this may be of "traceable" value (to some extent) it's by no means a directly useable reference and is simply "a basic guide" only ....
We're talking about an airline here who's aircraft were branded with a font style that was entirely different from that used to support it's commercial advertising .... and whom also lasted only a couple of years .... if that !
They also operated a DC-10-10 (N905WA) leased from CAPITOL .... and which supported an entirely a different font style again but one which "is" at least better referenced within the 2nd of the following links ....

Should be DC-8-61CF -63CF, and a DC-10-10 only .... I don't think I mentioned a DC-8-71 unless I made some "typo"
Just noticed something else too ....
The PEA DC-62 we currently offer is in basic SEA & SUN AIRWAYS livery ....
The definitive PEA livery on the DC-8-62H (N39307) was the same as that applied to the -61CF as follows ....
The DC-10-10 is "basic CAPITOL AIRWAYS" livery .... if you were to "ask Erik nicely" I'm sure he might consent to his "CAPITOL SKYSAVER" livery/texture (same aircraft N905WA) being used as a foundation for PEA version and which will resolve the red upper fuselage crown skin pin striping with greater clarity
