And Antonov-225!

The Mriya would make the 747-8 and the A380 look an A321 in terms of its usefulness in AWS

Maybe an oversized cargo could be added? This would require nose or tail loading. Aircraft in this category would be 748F, A124, A225, L100 Hercules and a few others.
Flights would be limited around some oil/aviation industrial cities, but incredibly lucrative. E.g. fixed lines that require these aircraft like PAE/SEA-NGO (787 parts). Would be interesting to think of the choice of adding another fleet for limited routes, opening another route for said routes, etc.

P.s. the 747-8 can be really useful

MD 80 freighter conversion.
I do not know if anyone has ever noted that this aircraft is missing or requested that it be added to the database.
Here is the information I have been able to find out about it:
1. From Wikipedia:Freighter conversions

In February 2010, Aeronautical Engineers Inc. (AEI) based in Miami, Florida announced it was beginning a freighter conversion program for the MD-80 series.[7] The converted aircraft use the "MD-80SF" designation. AEI was the first firm to receive a supplemental type certificate for the MD-80 family from the FAA in February 2013.[8] The first conversion was undertaken on an ex-American Airlines MD-82 aircraft, which was used as a testbed for the supplemental type.[9] The MD-80SF made its inaugural flight on 28 September 2012. AEI is certified to perform conversions on MD-81, MD-82, MD-83, and MD-88 aircraft. The launch customer for the conversion service is Everts Air Cargo.[7] In October 2015, the MD-80SF was approved by the EASA.[8] The first MD-80SF was delivered to Everts Air Cargo in February 2013.[10]

2. From Aeronatical Engineers Inc website: Please see attached image. The data sheet can be found at the following link: http://www.aeronautical-engineers.com/media/products/data_sheets/MD-80_Spec_Sheet.pdf

Hello,

Quick request for info on the 767 line of freighters.  This is in relation to GW2.  I have a fleet of 747´s that are not getting younger and I need to make plans.

Thank you in advance for the info.

Cheers

Scott

I wonder when freighter versions of MD80s and MD90s will be available in gameworlds. I also wonder if it will ever have freighter versions of regional jets like Fokker 100s,  ERJs, E-jets, Fairchild-Dornier 528 family...

uh...

MD-80 freighter: Eventually..
MD-90 freighter: Doesn't exist.
F-100: Doesn't exist
ERJ-145: Program started in 2016; no info or aircraft as of today.
EMBs: Doesn't exist
FD-528: Truly doesn't exist...

Hope that clears things a bit.

Don't remember the date the MD F was introduced, but it could become quite important and make the family more attractive, as there is no modern workhorse-derived freighter between the 732F and 733F (bar the 757, which can't really be considered a workhorse, and that only a handful of airlines have a use for).

Makes a big hole in the continuity of cargo ops for airlines that try to cover cargo as well but can't afford an extra type.

March 2013 revenue service is when the MD-82SF (all variants) began... So that doesn't really help.


As far as Lg freighters, no, there really is no option between the 2nd gen and 3rd gen. Err actually, the Tu-204 family has freighter and combi variants. New builds. So, when those are added (no idea when), then we'll have a new build 90s freighter.

Also, were missing freighter and combi variants on the Russian metal side... there could be options there as well. Its standard practice for Russian aircraft family to have a minimum of 25 variants™.  :laugh:

Right on point!
This afternoon I was looking for info about the Il-76. Found so many variants, and plenty of info for all those variants, but always incomplete. I gave up.
I might resume my quest later on, but the Il-76 is not the most important bird for the game.

Gosh, MD-80s will get freighter versions only in the 2010s... A320s in the 2010s, too... a lot of regional jets will take long aswell to get freighter versions and other aircraft will never have one!  :(

Either Sami starts to consider a lift on fleetgroup penalties to accomodate a 4th fleet for freighter aircraft, or I'll have to hold on to DC9s till 2030!

@ Wilian

If you really wanna know, there's a guy still flying DC-6 (in GW#2). And yes, he's in green.
Could have been the freighter version :P

I guess it's the same guy whom I leased some Convair 440s not long ago.  ;D

But I'm fine with my current fleet, no need to change soon.

Isnt theres a saying 'as the last 737 flies to the scrapper, a dc9 flies the crew out' or something like that?  ;D

Maybe just not on the aircraft list, but I guess we are missing the conversions for the CV-240 family

CV-240 --> CV-600 (Dart engines)
CV-340/440 --> CV-580 (Allison engines)
CV-340/440 --> CV-640 (Dart engines)



Also a thing that would be cool to have, but I'm probably opening a can of worms here, would be some business jets, especially the early ones like the Lockheed JetStar or the (sadly never reaching serial production) McDonnell 220. The later was able to be configured at up to 26 seats and fly 2000NM. Could be an interesting airplane in the late 50s early 60s in this game.

+1

Couldn't find the A/C thread earlier but posted over on feature requests support for the CV-340/440 --> CV-580 as this would allow these old birds to be put to use later on as cargo only

Any idea when (assuming it's in the game) the DC7-F is abaikable as a conversion from the DC7.
