I have not done it but - but at least in theory it should be possible.In the "Mission" in question, locate the file which ends with a FLT extension.Make a backup of it first and then use Notepad to open the original file.Locate a section similar to this:[sim.0]Sim=Boeing 747-400 Paint9The data after Sim= will be different of course.You should be able to change that data to read whatever the data is on the title= line in the aircraft variation you wish to use.Example using the default Beech Baron:[sim.0]Sim=Beech Baron 58 Paint1Give it a try and let us know if it works.

You could do what Opa has suggested or simply turn on the "Enable Changes in selected mission" Check Mark at the bottom of the mission list and load a different aircraft for the mission.

I don't do much with FSX and had never noticed that option.If the Mission starts in the air (rather than on the ground) it is simple enough to Pause the sim while you change aircraft.Thanks - I learned something new again today! :(

Hi Opa, you were on the right track with your first bit of advice the Tanker is a AI Aircraft . And I have tried that before posting.I have got another bit of advice that you have to use the Object placement Tool that comes with the Acceration Disk first chance I getI will try that out. Thanks again for the advice. Cheers Greg
