This is a repaint of the FS2004 default DC3 in the Iran Air early days livery. Iran Air came about in 1962, after Iranian Airways and Persian Air Services were joined together, taking the name of Iran National Airlines (internationally known as Iran Air). Iranian Airways had been the first Iranian flag carrier, when it was formed in 1944.
In a few years, with a fleet of 17 mostly DC-3 aircraft, Iran Air had both domestic and international routes covering many major Middle East cities.It soon built a large route map consisting of flights all over the Middle East, to Northern Africa, Europe and New York, and including a dense domestic flight schedule.
The first planes used by the company were the Avro York, DC-3, DC-6 and Vickers Viscount types.
Since I only had two very small B&W (or rather Brown and Yellow!) photos of IR DC3's, I've done my best to make the repaint look
as real as possible, hope that you'll like it.
