You're right. Besides the Concorde SSC, the Dash8B is my favorite aircraft. 🏄‍♀️ Always will be.

Thanks. I'll try it sometime. What Airline would you recommend.  Flybe?

No. Not for the flight to Carlisle. Carlisle is where you go sightseeing. If you use the bigger model  Flybe uses, instead of your American, the just fly out of EGLL to Dusseldorf [BPK7F BPK Q295 BRAIN M197 REDFA L620 PAM P62 UNKAR TEBRO TEBR3G]. That's what that dash model is best for. Back and forth from England to Hamburg, Dusseldorf, or Frankfurt.

And what I recommend, besides what you already have, that is for the EGLL to EGNC route, is my favorite. WiderØe. Always has been. It's just that I don't have it.  This is my favorite Dash, and my favorite airline paint. Always will be.

 Now that I look at your plane, it reminds me of Squawkbox 4.0, which I liked, but I just can't get it to work anymore. If you do use squawkbox, do they have that livery for your dash8 in the american's list? That what I always wanted to see if if I could check whatever aircraft to make sure it actually showed up with the paint. The same way with me and selecting the WiderØe livery. Would it actually show up for you? What steam does, is it just goes to default, if it's a 747, or whatever, or just select another type of aircraft. That's what I've never done on this thing. Check and see what paint was actually on the aircraft, which you both must have.

The Airplane is actually a DreamWings model. I found it on Avsim.  There is something that You can add to FSX to make it show the real world airplane/livery. (with a few exceptions)  I can try to find a WiderØe for you if you'd like.

 Sure. Do you need my  airplane .ini and texture files?  Then, we would both have it. I also presume you don't use squawkbox IV. Right?  🤷‍♀️

FLAi installs a huge load of models and gives you a model matching list to load into your pilot client. Sorry, no idea if there's anything particular about Squawkbox in this context, but as far as installing the models and liveries, you don't have to do nothing yourself. FLAi is about as "install and forget" as you can get in flight sims.
