PMDG 748i – Previews!


PMDG decided to give us a sneak peak at the development of the Boeing 747-800i, it’s looking fantastic as expected and

I have mentioned a few times that we are developing the 747-400 and 747-8 airplanes more-or-less in parallel because it is far easier from a development standpoint to do so.  The two will cease developing in parallel about the time we hit beta testing on the 744, which hopefully won’t be too much longer.

While the 747-400 is, by a long margin, my favorite airplane of the modern era, I am starting to grow increasingly fond of the new, bigger sister.  I anticipate that I will be adding the -8 to my rating a bit later this year, and then I am sure it will turn into a full-blown-love-affair…  (I have a four-engine-fetish…  the support groups just haven’t helped, but thanks for asking.)

I think these images give you a pretty good idea where we are with the 747-8 Intercontinental.  The cockpit for this airplane is well along also, but we aren’t quite ready to show you either VC just yet.  We mentioned this during the 777 development as well, but we do a bunch of “non standard stuff” inside the VC during development in order to help us through the process of making certain that things align properly, display properly, etc… and if I showed you an image of the VC at this stage of “work in progress” we would inevitably have some folks skip through the text and not realize they were looking at work-in-progress….  So we are going to hold off showing you the insides just a bit longer.

Hopefully not TOO much longer…  I am eager for you to see what we have wrought.  B)

Lots and lots more goodies coming your way- stay tuned!
