So what is THIS image? Is it? Is it? Nooooo......

Recommended Posts

Captains-The PMDG 737-800 has rolled out of production.It's simply not practical to place a coat of paint on the airplane in the PMDG production facility, so today was the day the airplane was officially moved off to "The Paint House."I thought you might enjoy a few pictures of the journey.....It is always important to be properly de-iced before departure. Heavy snow throughout the northeastern USA created a strong need for de-icing.... Remember to turn the PACKS off during de-icing, or your passengers will be coughing their lungs out as the fumes enter the cabin......http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/avsim/whatisit2.jpgWith almost no fuel required for the short flight, and no passenger or bag weight, it wasn't necessary to use the full length of the runway.....http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/avsim/whatisit4.jpgA nice view of the NEW panel artwork.... Marc has done a tremendous job updating the visual experience in the NG cockpit... Oh- are those new gauges too? hmmmm......http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/avsim/whatisit3.jpgA nice view of the gear retraction....http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/avsim/whatisit5.jpgClimbing into the clear. (Subtitled: The last thing the Canadian Goose saw....) You can clearly see the composite parts of the airframe in this image...http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/avsim/whatisit6.jpgAnd a nice above the cloud deck shot....http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/avsim/whatisit7.jpgMore to come....The 800 is being painted in it's rollout livery- and the 900 should come out of initial production shortly....Hope you enjoyed!

I gotta say, I am sure glad you guys are doing MSFS stuff now. You all are really the best all around company to come around in a long time. Great work as usual.

So here it isMy $1500 -800 ;-)Yeah I know PMDG won't be charging that much, but that includes the cost of a little Hardware upgrade, consisting of a new mainboard (Gigabyte GA-8KNXP), CPU (PIV 3.0/800HT), RAM (Corsair XMS TwinX-3200LL 1 GB), Graphics card (Sapphire Atlantis Radeon 9800 pro 256, since the extra couple of frames of the XT can't justify the price jump), disks (2 x Samsung Spinpoint 200GB S-ATA, Raid 0 Stripe Array) and a DVD burner (Plextor PX-W708A) for good measure ;-)My present rig (Gigabyte MoBo, PIV 2.4, GeForce 4Ti-4400, 1GB PC2700 RAM, 360 GB HD (80, 2x80 RAID 0, 120) will be relegated to secondary dury, replacing my old AMD T-Bird 800.'Nuff rambling, I'm looking forward to the -800 as much as a kid to Christmas. And when the -800 finally lands on my harddisk, there's more looking forward - to the 744!Thanks in advance for more great PMDG products (and for giving me a good reason to upgrade my system)!

See now that ain't fair...I want that plane so bad, especially after looking at that panel. It look like more of a photoreal panel, plus you made a new center bar in the window, finally. :)Those displays look soooo good...have you updated the displays in other ways than the layout information?Can't wait.../Mikkel

Wow that looks absolutely amazing. I can't wait! :-) Could you release or make available thoose textures as well, it looks great being "naked" lolHmmm, looking at the panel from this post, will we be having an operational lower EICAS?Just a question that popped into my head, looking at the new panel - will the new autopilot/mcp panel be available/considered in this update (i.e. like the B744/B777)?Loving It!
