L-049 into KLAX

Recommended Posts

One of those 'start 10 miles out' approaches that didn't have the engines set up correctly so I barely made it.

At least having 4 engines gives you some options!😀

You seem to be doing much better,...with those "Four Wright R-3350-DA3 Duplex-Cyclone 18 cylinder air-cooled radial piston engines",....than I could,...🙂...

Nice shots of TWA Connie, is it A2A or Freeware L-049?

[BTW, T45, I was fortunate to have had an exclusive (one-on-one) guided tour (of a TWA L-1049 Exhibit), given to me by a former TWA Connie Crew member..hence, my special interest in this aircraft...if you wish, please go to the "Airline History Museum" website, and check out the images of that TWA L-1049...That plane has featured in several movies too...]

It's the A2A. 

I found the engine management quite tricky on a subsequent conventional flight.

I think one would need to read the manual to figure out the interrelationships between the Manifold Pressure, Mixture & RPM, also the various cowl/ cooling settings, at each stage of the flight. Couldn't locate RPM levers to tune the RPM. There were some switches though. But time reading up is necessary, IMHO.

I think it is theirs, (A2A),  a DC-6?, that has a Co-Pilot that does all that stuff for you if you 'engage' their services. 😃

I imagine the L-049 would be a great guided tour.

Great A2A plane to fly...! Yes, a bit of "advance" reading is a must...🙂...I have several A2A big props, with Accu-Sim, but not this one...

And, for DC-6, maybe you mean the PMDG DC-6, with their Artificial Flight Engineer (AFE) to help you through each phase of flight...🙂...?

L-049 was the first (and smallest) Constellation...the one, I've mentioned above, visited in the Kansas City Museum, being a L-1049H Super Constellation, was a much bigger variant, but, yes, all these are beautiful aircraft to visit, indeed...!

That's it, AFE, PMDG DC-6

Very helpful if you leave him alone to do his stuff while you enjoy the view.😀
