It's not in the database yet, Comet is missing too. I have the data but wasn't added yet.

Are you going to model the Comets falling out of the sky too?  ;)

I must admit that I was hoping to see some of the missing types in this most recent version of the Jet Age, Canadair Northstars with their four Rolls Royce Merlin engines,  the Breguets and of course the Connies.  Perhaps the next time.

As for Jimbos comment let us not forget the loss of life associated with these disasters but in the case of the Comet, the first jet powered commercial airliner, the enormously important lessons learned about metal fatigue and the shape of airliner windows, and metallurgical developments that were made in a period of post-war austerity.

Kindest regards,

Graham

I would love to see those in the games, sami!!!! The Constellations were so beautiful and great capacity as time went on and they stretched and made improvements. Maybe stick to Comet 4's though? LOL! :laugh:
P.S. Could you guess I'm a Lockheed fan? ;)

Thats true. Thats why I thought IF sami does introduce Comets, use only the Comet 4 model. :-\

I really can't add them mid-game due to the production line dynamics, but perhaps for the next early era world then.

That would be great!!!! I didn't think you could do it this soon anyway. But will look forward to the time when we can. :)

You know I just thought of two other aircraft that saw heavy duty in North America. That was the Convair 580 and 600. Maybe add to the next older era game as well? ;D
