  • Please make sure you have a working installation of Manfred Jahn's (Team 749) Lockheed L-749 base pack (folders "Lockheed_L749_0" and "Lockheed_L749_1" in your FS9 aircraft directory). If not present, download and install the base pack first.
  • Unzip the zip-file included in this package to a temporary folder or open it in Windows Explorer.
  • Find the 'Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator 9\Aircraft\Lockheed_L749_0' folder on your system. Copy the extracted texture folder from step 2 into the "Lockheed_L749_0" folder.
  • Using a text editor such as Notepad, open the aircraft.cfg contained in 'Lockheed_L749_0' folder and paste the [fltsim] section appended below under the last [fltsim] entry. Make sure the new [fltsim] entry is in proper numerical order by replacing the 'xx' by the next number in sequence.

This package is designed for use with the L-749A short nose version and without the speedpak attached to the aircraft as the aircraft was operated by Pan American. If you prefer flying NC86520 with the speedpak change the lines sim and model in the [fltsim]-section as shown below:

sim=749_SP
model=EAL_SP

Or just make a second entry in the [fltsim]-section and change these parameters there. In this case don't forget making the title and the ui-variation in the second [fltsim]-section different from the other entry.

  • Save and close the aircraft.cfg file. Start your FS2004 and enjoy the flight. In the aircraft selection menu, the new Constellation will show up under Lockheed > L-749 Constellation.
