FS2004 KLM L-749 Constellation 1948-1949. KLM was a major European operator of various models of the Lockheed Constellation and Super Constellation. Out of 48 Connies and Super Connies, 11 were L-749 (8 of them later converted to L-749A) and 9 were L-749A Constellations. The first L-749 entered service with KLM in August 1947, and for some 13 years this and the other L-749 (A) Connies served on various medium- and long-haul routes. By the end of the 1950's the career of KLM's (Super) Constellation started to come to an end with the arrival of the Douglas DC-7C and, introducing the airlines' jet-age, the DC-8. Featured are KLM's PH-TDB 'Batavia' (1948 livery), PH-TES 'Soerabaja' (1948 livery) and PH-TER 'Roermond' (1949 livery), both without and with "Speedpak" cargo pod. These are textures only. You will require Team 749's (Manfred Jahn and Co) Lockheed L-749 Constellation package (LOCKHEED749.ZIP), the folder Lockheed_L749_0 (twin stack exhausts). Also required Team 749's Lockheed L-749 Constellation models update (749_MODELS_UPDATE.ZIP). Repaints (based on Manfred Jahns textures) by Maarten Brouwer.
