Lockheed L-749 c/n 2612 built as one of two PO-1WL (WV-1), essentially prototypes of the later Super Constellation based WV-2's. Delivered to the U.S. Navy on April 5, 1950 with Bu.No. 124437. Withdrawn from use and stored at Litchfield Park in October 1957. In February 1958 bought by Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) (renamed 1958 Federal Aeronautics Administration, FAA, and 1959 Federal Aviation Agency) and registered N7623C. Surveillance equipment removed and converted for use as a "calibration" aircraft. On June 4, 1958 c/n 2612 reregistered N119. In 1966 transferred to U.S. Air Force and reregistered N1192. In the same year withdrawn from use and stored at Davis Monthan Air Force Base. Finally broken up in 1969. Original by Manfred Jahn & Co (Team 749). Repainted by Hans Hermann, Virtual Birds Factory.

With this package a new model file (model.wv1) of Manfred Jahn & Team 749 for the WV-1 version without the NAVY surveillance equipment is included. Regard the larger outer tailfins adopted from the Super Constellation series! So the installation instruction differs a little bit from other add on packages.

  • 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. The Lockheed L-749 Constellation Models Update files uploaded to AVSIM.COM by Manfred Jahn on January 1, 2010 should be installed also.
  • 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_1' folder on your system. Copy both, the extracted texture folder and the extracted model folder from step 2 into the "Lockheed_L749_1" folder.
  • Using a text editor such as Notepad, open the aircraft.cfg contained in 'Lockheed_L749_1' 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.
