Special Paint - US Air Force VIP 777-200LR

Recommended Posts

Afternoon Captains!

I am working on a special paint of the 200LR in USAF VIP colours - not Air Force One itself, but similar to the VIP 757s (C32A\ B)

Hope to have it finished later today. I will also include a Boeing spec seating \ cabin layout which matches up with the missing doors and windows.

I will try to attach a pic to show you the progress so far. The plane will include the Aux. Fuel tank option.

 Very nice indeed. Would you consider doing an USAF unit 777 in the future? like the Travis AFB MD-11 repaint by Robert Halmich:

UPDATE: I re-did the whole plane, was not happy with the gold stripe or a few other details. I realize some parts are not 100% accurate to other aircraft in this VIP scheme; however I did notice quite a bit of real-world variation using a similar colour theme, even on similar type aircraft. So I used my artistic license to improve or balance out the scheme in some areas.

Please see updated pics:

Hey guys, thanks for the feedback, yeah you can use it as AF1 just change the 2 to a 1 for the flight number. Download it by searching the file library of Avsim for my name. (Wes Meyer)

Hi Dear Wes,

 

Great work! Amazed by your attention to details like missing windows, etc. I've been searching the net for weeks now to have a reasonable VIP floor plan on the 777, no joy up to now. I would like to fly my PMDG T7 in the bizav role. Could you share your one? It would be greatly appreciated by me and the whole FS community!

 

Looking forwrad to it.

 

Cheers,

Thanks guys, I am glad that you all like it!! RE the floor plan - It is more military-optimized than standard civilian VIP. But - I am looking at adapting it to a BBJ type layout, and doing a true BBJ style repaint. What I will do real quick for you, is show you on a screen shot where the different areas are.

Here is the annotated picture. Its pretty rough and dirty but you get a general idea of the layout.

Thank you, Wes. Interesting. Seems to me a "standard" military/government VIP interior. Similar concept to AF1.

Yes it is indeed based closely on the Air Force One layout. I believe there are some things in the cargo hold as well but not sure on details.
