737 BBJ - differences to 737-700...?

Recommended Posts

Hi,I guess there will be no 737 BBJ release from PMDG.Anyway, maybe I am able to simulate the BBJ on my own ?Is there a way to increase the volume of the tanks to get a longer range ?Are there any other differences between the 737-700 and the 737 BBJ ?Other engines ? Or just the volume of the tanks (and the pretty nicer interior design of course...:-)ThanksBen (EDDT)

the wingspan of the 6/7/8 and 900 series is the same... 112'.7"the BBJ wingspan IS in fact a bit more (just because it has winglets :D ) 117'.5" Only weights vary a little empty weight 700 is 83.8 BBJ: 94.9 Bye, Luca(data taken from the Bulfer NGCC)PS: Why shouldn't PMDG make the BBJ expansion? ther is quite some interest for it.... IRS, HUD.... :9

Hey Vince ,Any chance a "save panel and FMC state" functionality will be integrated into the 737NG series when the BBJ is available? Or will that functionality only be for the 747-400?Thanks and really enjoying the 737NG 600/700/800/900 - all of em! :-)

Will PMDG realse (with the BBJ or a service udate) a new 2d view that includes the lower display? I'm not a big fan of VCs and prefer 2d panels. Thanks,Travis

Travis,There is a problem with the lower display. How do you fit it into a 4 by 3 ratio window without taking away too much of the outside view and still show the rest of the panel?The lower DU can be accessed by right clicking on the upper DU. I think that is the best we can hope for. Either way you have to do something to access the lower DU. Switch to a lower panel view

I understand why the didn't model it in. It just would be nice. (This was a shot in the dark, so to speak, anyway) But I should probably give the VC a chance, then I might get used to it.Keep up the great work, and thanks,Travis
