Lockheed's L-188 Electra was designed and built with American Airlines' requirement for a domestic airliner with a seating capacity between 75 and 100, however, it was Eastern Airlines who were the 1st to use the aircraft in commercial service, due to industrial action by AA's pilots. Her first test flight was in 1957, and her first commercial flight took place in 1959.

The L-188A had a troubled service life, with several crashes attributed to a design fault with the engine mountings, which led to excessive vibration in the wing. A redesign of the wing and engine saw the aircraft resume normal service in 1961. 115 L-188As were built between 1957 and 1961.

The 'C' variant, which provided a higher maximum payload and a longer range than the 'A' variant, first saw service with KLM in 1959. 55 L-188Cs were built between 1959 and 1961.

In addition to the 170 Electras that were built, more than 600 P-3 Orions were built between July 1962 and April 1990. The Orion is a military version of the Electra, used as an Anti-Submarine Warfare and maritime patrol aircraft. Still in service, it is used by the US Navy and the US Coastguard. It remains the US Navy's sole land-based ASW aircraft.

Once you have obtained and installed the Electra, follow these instructions to install:

  • Extract the "texture.klm63" folder to the Sabreliner folder in your "Aircraft" directory - For example C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\FS2004\Aircraft\l188
  • Edit the "aircraft.cfg" file, pasting this new [fltsim.x] section immediately following the last one that's already there, changing the "x" to the next number available. If your last [fltsim.x] section is [fltsim.4] then change the "x" to "5".

title=Lockheed L188 KLM 1963
