  • 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. This package also works with the upgraded model files (749_models_update.zip) published by Manfred Jahn on January 2, 2010.
  • 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 of your choice 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.

For the short nose version without speedpak you should copy and paste the following [fltsim] section:
