Plus, a 400-page guide to re-enacting the historical events surrounding the liveries above.  Each scenario typically provides the following guidance:
* Real-life background information and/or a creative situation presentation
* Aircraft payload and fuel weight requirements
* An aircraft failure rate appropriate to the airframe age at the time of the event
* Start, intermediate and ending locations that are default X-Plane airports, so that no add-on scenery is required
* Detail flight plans specifying the route, flight parameters and potentially other requirements
* One or more graphical navigation references, each with an associated online map provided by skyvector.com
* Revelation of the real-life outcome of the scenario
* Bibliographic and circumstantial references

Other features of the Flight Scenarios guide include:
* The Portable Document Format (PDF) file allows a rich presentation across many hardware platforms
* A fully populated Table of Contents
* Three lists of all the scenarios sorted either by region, duration and difficulty to provide quick access to a scenario based on your desire
* Over 130 embedded Internet links
* Numerous photographs of related real-life subjects
* Many images derived from screenshots of X-Plane activity
* Separate instructions for the setup of custom navigation aids (in the form of Non-Directional Beacons within the simulator), which are required to successfully complete five of the scenarios

Also, two bonus liveries associated with the list above:
31. N19924, supposedly seized by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency but for which no additional information could be learned
32. N87664 again, when it served the legitimate Canadian carrier Millardair and was registered as C-GGCS

Features of the liveries include:
* Each exterior texture is customized to represent the subject livery as it appeared during the targeted year.
* Likewise, individual interior textures are designed to depict the aircraft's cabin space.
* As of version 2.79, passenger seat visibility is toggled in the simulator by clicking upon the equipment rack located aft of the co-pilot's position.  Some individual liveries intentionally do not display the equipment rack and/or seats.
* Proprietary normal/bump maps are included, implementing Physically Based Rendering ("PBR") when appropriate.
* Custom ski textures are also provided.  Skis are activated in the simulator by a knobbed lever near the captain's left shoulder.
* Exclusive night-time textures (LITs) are provided, with guidance on their optional activation.
* Optional replacements for the spinning propeller texture (whose tip color is red by default), along with installation instructions.
* For version 2.9.5, three new custom engine textures have been added.
