747 Landing Pic please...

Recommended Posts

Hello BETA testers,I was just wondering if one of you kind lads ;) could post a screen of the PMDG 747 landing from the cockpit view, say abou the middle or inner marker or so? Reason being is i just want to see if you can land this plane visually with the runway insite the whole time while on final or if this is one of those like some of the freeware 747's i have where you end up losing sight of the runway because the plane descends too fast so you're flying down the gs at +10 degrees to keep her on the glidepath. Hope this isnt too confusing!Thank you in advance!Taylor

This is not "like one of those freeware 747s" - I'll try to take a pic for you with the latest beta tonight...

Thank you very much. Im pretty sure this isnt just like a freeware either (especially because i heard we cant just t/o on an 18hr flight and go to sleep anymore...lot more things have to be done i guess? I was just meaning the view...as im sure most of us have had to land a plane where we lost sight of the runway because we had to pitch the nose so high to keep the plane from -2000 FPM on final!Thank you, again, in advance!Taylor

Taylor,A lot of folks will agree this is a major factor in flying in FS. I know what you mean from the cockpit view thing. I am sure in real life 747 piltos do not stare at the sky for the last few seconds of their flight.I look forward to that screenshot as well, though I can tell already from their other VC shots that she will be very pleasent insofar as the "eyepoints" and views. :-)

VERY very nice **smiles**Just as good "over the nose" structure as LDS did with their 767 (which is one thing that has me addicted to flying circuits with that AC). I love it. Great work.By the way, is that dynamic shine in the VC? If so VERY nice texturing there!!!!!As for the scenery, you must be using Ultimate Terrain. Am I right? Very ncie stuff that is. I just got UT USA and UT Canada and combined with FSGenesis makes for sweet approaches and VFR flying.

There is a mark on the window post on the left that we use to align our seat position. The VC seems a bit nose low to me...but over all pretty nice. I could take a picture when we are "on approach" if you like for comparision.

Hello Mr. FlyBywire. Could you be so kind as to take those pictures you've mentioned just so that we may compare our future plane to the real deal? Unless you're the PF for the landing of course! Thanks for the offer. BTW I agree that it looks a bit nose down on the VC... but I really don't mind (I'm not your average nitpicker); just pointing it out. Regards, Victorhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/800driver.jpg

It seems to look nose down only because the viewpoint is different. the view is looking downward towards the panel because the panel is straight up infront of you, so the perspective is a little different.

Cool shots,So from this we can see that the numbers on the heading indicator on the PFD are no longer 'horizontally fixed' :( and the triangle on the turn/slip indicator is no longer a solid white triangle. These folks do listen to us :-lol we must seem like little children going on and on and on at times LOLGreat stuff, she looks superb!

how do you know it was you? for all you know, it could have been fixed in a later build than what the previous screenshots were taken in
