How to Download the RED TAILS P-51

Please follow the steps below to get your free RED TAILS P-51:

1. Go to the RED TAILS P-51 download page on Xbox.com: http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/Pr...8-00014d5308d2
2. Select Buy for PC. (This is a free transaction.)
3. Sign in with your LIVE account.
4. Select Confirm Purchase.
5. Select Download Your Purchase Now and follow the prompts to install the content.

If you are accessing the DLC from the Steam in-game web browser, you won't be able to download the DLC from the Download Your Purchase Now button in Step 5. Please follow these additional steps to download the aircraft.

6. Restart Microsoft Flight.
7. Go to the Hangar.
8. The RED TAILS P-51 aircraft should now show in your list of aircraft. (It may take a moment or two after signing in.)
9. Select the RED TAILS P-51 and click Redownload.
10. Click Confirm Download from the Games for Windows--LIVE guide.

The RED TAILS P-51 should now start downloading and appear in your hangar for use after it is done.

Worked for me too!

Just an advise:
You can just "buy" the plane, then skip the download. Start Flight from Steam, go to hangar, choose the P-51 then clikc the Redownload button.

Didn't work for me. Here's what happened after I typed my name/password:

Now that comes up any time I hit "Buy for PC."


EDIT: Solved it by using IE instead of Chrome. Only Microsoft...

It appears you've found a glitch in the system.

I was using Firefox... Get it together, Microsoft. You claim IE9 is standards compliant, so how come using Chrome or Firefox causes your site to internally freak out?


Edit: Apparently not browser related. Retried in Firefox and it worked. Site must run on Windows servers.

I used Firefox, but had to use the IE Tab Add-On and switch to the IE Rendering Engine from within Firefox to get it to work.

Available here, in case you are interested:

Handy to use as you can run Internet Explorer from within Firefox "on the fly" by just clicking a button and it switches to the IE engine right within Firefox.

I've had to use it for a few sites that absolutely refuse to work properly in Firefox, and I refuse to use IE if at all possible.

Anyhow, I got the Red Tails P 51 and it looks really cool, so thank you MS for this "freebie"

I went to the store site, "purchased" the free DLC, then restarted flight. The DLC appears in my hangar. When I click "redownload", it keeps telling me "can't download".
