    Default Issue with installing FS2004/FSX Boeing 787-8

    Hello all,
    I tried to install the Boeing 787-8 ( on FSX.
    But I can not see the airplane in the airplane selection menu of FSX. (I installed sucessfully other models before, so I am not a total novice)
    What did I do:
    I extracted the zip.-file and copied the folder TDS788TRENT_BOEING_N787BA into the SimObjects/Airplanes folder. I copied the contents of the Effects folder into the Effects folder of FSX.

    Unfortunately the Boing 787 does not show up in the airplane selection menu of FSX.

    Any help highly appreciated

    Check further down the menu. It's listed under TDS, not Boeing.
    That can be fixed in the aircraft.cfg

    Change that to ui_manufacturer=Boeing...Don

    lost between how it is and how it ought to be


    Also note that there is a patch for these planes to work in FSX.

    It is in the library.

    Default this is the basepack that is needed to go along with the 787.

    It needs more liveries. I do not see the paint kit (oh no, not me).
