About This File

FS2004 Lockheed L-1649A Starliner Prototype. The Starliner was the last of the long-range piston-engine airliners. Designed to fly Los Angeles-London or Paris-Tokyo in around 20 hours non-stop, it established numerous long-distance records, many of them still current today. Providing accommodation for twenty-six first-class and forty-five tourist-class passengers, the Starliner entered service with TWA in May 1957. Other operators were Air France and Lufthansa. C/n 1001, registration N1649 (later N60968) first flew on 10 October 1956 and continued to serve with Lockheed Aircraft Corporation until 1970. The core Starliner team consists of Manfred Jahn (model), Hansjoerg Naegele (panel), Roland Berger (flight tests, dynamics, exhaust effects), and C.J. Kaeser (research). Effects by Milton Shupe (engine), Hansjoerg Naegele (fueldump), Wayne Tudor (exhaust flames). Original panel by Jan Visser.
