Fly over 500 people from A to B in just over an hourThe upcoming Service Update 1 for PMDG 747-400 Queen of the Skies will add a new "hide winglets" option that allows simmers to recreate flights of the 747-400D "Domestic" version. This 747 variant is exclusively operated in Japan by All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines to fly high-density domestic routes such as Tokyo-Osaka. Thus, making it the perfect addition for enthusiasts interested in short flights that follow real airline schedules/routings. Accurately registered -400D liveries for JAL and ANA will be available at PMDG's download center, a free service available for 747-400 Queen of the Skies customers.http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/for...G747400D_JL.jpghttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/for...G747400D_NH.jpgNew JAL colors will also be available.

This is really THE best add-on! The Service pack includes everything that I've ever wished the aircraft had that it didn't already have, and the Domestic option just tops it. Wonderful work from you guys :D

What does "no winglets" do exactly? I've never heard of that, maybe someone could explain.Thanks!Jeff

Simply means that it will have no winglets (the vertical surfaces that protrude from the tips of the wings). Usually on longer range routes winglets can save big money. However, sometimes the cost of them plus the drag created doesn't warrant their use on smaller routes such is with the Domestic variant. Also, gate space might be an issue when considering whether or not to use winglets.

Lol, thanks for explaining what winglets look like, I wasn't sure. :-lolSo you're saying that when installed they increase range significantly?Jeff

Not significantly, but over the years the savings add up.

I was under the impression that wingtips reduced drag by eliminating wingtip spill - when the high pressure air under the wing and the low pressure above the wing spill over the side creating turbulance thus creating drag.Just my two cents =)Tom Moretti

Except for the winglets, are there any other differences between an ordinary 744 and a 744D?
