Hello,I would like to know if the 747 will have failures, like the 737.If so have you thought about adding failures of the pitot-static system? (I realise this would be very tricky to model well.)Anyone remember the Air Puerto Rico 757 accident? Would be fascinating to see how we simmers handled these types of situations.Cheers,Paul

Why should they make a worse thing than their previous products? Its not official information, but I think it will have failures.

The pitot tubes were covered with masking tape???!!!That pilot should have his license to fly cancelled for life!!!Obviously the term "walkaround" doesn't apply to some pilots.

Hi,The pilot did do a walkaround, at night. A cleaner put masking tape on the static ports not the pitot tubes, the tape was not high visibility tape either. Paul
