Yes please Grin those lovely 18 hr flights with 216 Sqn down to the Falklands for the 1000's of troops. Working on "Timmy" was a pleasure besides the only source of pasteurised milk on the islands. Wink

The -500 will compliment the L1011 package nicely. I am also hopeful that CS will do the -500 as an update pack.....

Perhaps the tape style and clock style cockpits can be made as an option to be selected using ACE.

Any chance for a L1011-600?

Lockeed was seriously planning on a twin jet variant, Rolls Royce's bankruptcy forced the -600 project to be cancelled.

Lockheed also had plans to make 4 engine version, but why to make planes which never exist ?

I am hoping the CS will not use the same VC from the basepack since the 500 series has a slightly different cockpit with a few additions such as Autobrakes...

What I would like to see besides the 500 in an upcoming expansion pack ,if there will be one, would be an option to have and L1011-1 with the fin that is sweeps from the bottom front of the tail engine to the fuselage.  I would also like to see the L1011-100 as well in an upcoming expansion pack.  Again with the same option to have a model with the fin in front of the tail's engine.  Something like what was done with the CS 767 but with that one optional winglets were used. 

Also I have a question about the L1011-1 in real life.  On airliners.net I was looking at some TWA L1011's and I noticed that TWA had L1011's with the fin sweep in the bottom of the tail's engine and L1011's without the fin sweep, and even some of them had the same registration number as the finless.  Were those L1011's actually the same aircraft but later had the fin installed or were they a different aircraft that already was built with the fin even though the registration numbers were the same in both of them?

That would by the "Frisbee Fairing" (named after aeronautical engineer Lloyd Frisbee, not the "Wham-o" flying disc).

It was added to some L1011's, based on customer option. It was primarily a noise reducer on the #2 engine - that also had some minor aero benefits. It was, or course. part of the standard design spec for the -500. Would be interesting to see from CS, but would require a model re-work I am sure, especially since it is an "option", and not standard on all customers jets. Not sure if ANY of the freeware/payware renditions of the -1 through -250 models have ever had that. It would certainly distinguish this model.

The CS L1011-1 is fast becoming my favorite add-on aircraft in FSX. I would dearly love to see the addition of the L1011-500 the  and  espeacily the 500F. I would not be put off at all if all expansions used the current L1011-1 flight deck model.

Regards
Walt

I'd love a Dash 500 expansion, with an FMC! Then, I could fly N388LS!
