My 747-8F First Flight

Recommended Posts

Hi All,Thought I might share with you a video of my first flight aboard the 747-8F.I only bought the 747-400x on Friday, and thought that I might buy the -8 extension in a couple of months, but then I made the mistake of watching the live webcast of the first flight of the 747-8F! Immediatly after the takeoff, I rushed over to the PMDG store and bought the -8! Have to say the modelling is superb and I love the new sounds! Hopefully PMDG will release a full simulation one day! Anyway, on to the video, looks best in 480p.I flew it completly by hand except the final few minutes when I needed ATC's help to find the airport again! The Landing was done manually, though.. as you'll probably be able to tell! Beware though, the video is 7 minutes and 30 seconds long!oh, and incidentally, I left the landing gear anf flaps deployed on purpose! (like the test flight)
