  1. CRJ-1000 Air France / Brit Air

    I wanted to take a trip with an Air France -1000 but there wasn't one, so I thought "hey, that looks simple, I'll knock one up quickly". Ha ha. So here's Brit Air's F-HMLL - which I believe is the last CRJ-1000 - in Air France livery circa 2013. You can fly this one to Singapore if you like, the real one went. Far too many hand drawn bits from lack of suitably crisp source. Also a shoddily done interior with unfortunately mirrored bits because I don't understand "quick". At least it's not blue. I'm not totally sold on the red yet - it was taken from AF branding but it's come out awfully bright. Photographers use all sorts of filters so you can't really rely on photos for colour matching, but even still, so I might revisit it sometime. No 4k textures this time, they all came out crisp enough.
     
    Brit Air became part of HOP! which is now just AIr France, who are ditching the CRJs so there is little chance of seeing one in full Air France again despite what their website shows.

  2. CRJ-900 BEA Retro

    This one is quite a stretch but the livery has always been a favourite of mine - something about bold 50s/60's design does it for me. So let's assume - 
     
    * BA CityFlyer operate CRJ800s
    * They painted one in a late 50s-mid 60s BEA livery ( like they did the A319 )
     
    and here we are. I borrowed elements from the BAC 1-11 and the Trident liveries and had to make a few things up ( I must have gone through 5 different winglets ) but it suits this airframe surperbly. The nacelles on the CRJ are composites so I tried to make it look like they had silver paint or a silver coating rather than be bare metal, I think it worked to some degree or other. If not, please just suspend your disbelief a little...
     
    Callsign is "FLYER" - if you want a pure BEA aircraft there is a zip file inside the livery folder which you can unzip in place, it'll remove any British Airways branding & change the callsign to the proper BEALINE. If it doesn't unzip, the aircraft.cfg goes in SimObjects/Airplanes/Aerosoft_CRJ_900_BEA and the dds ( texture ) files go in texture.BEA under that. I'd recommend using "BEELINE" if you use ingame ATC or it'll make some comical attempts at pronouncing it.
     
    British European Airways ( not to be confused with the later British European which became Flybe ) were a nationally-owned company formed in 1946 to operate short-haul routes. By the early 1960s it'd become the biggest airline outside the US. In 1974 it merged with BOAC to become British Airways. BA Cityflyer grew out of the remnant of BA Connect ( originally Brymon Airways, bought out by BA ) which it didn't sell to Flybe, and now operates to a range of European destinations, so something of a spiritual successor.

  3. CRJ-900 Loganair

    This was a request,  CRJ-900 wearing the livery of a Loganair ERJ,
     
    This one was a little challenging - the tail is 100% my work from scratch, there's 5 different sections to match up per side, all at different angles & subtlly different scales. The fuselage & wings probably took 20 minutes, the tail... try that in hours ( although I had so much fun the first time I redid the whole thing ).
     
    The aircraft is named after my mother's clan ( both of them, although they're closely related anyway ).

  4. CRJ-900 Flybe Purple G-FLBE ( fictional )

    Semi-fictional - Flybe never had CRJs, but this is a real Q-400 livery. I'm a local to their old HQ ( which is why I picked this one for it's name ) & while maybe they weren't the best airline to ever exist, they were ours & made a difference locally.
