Some pictures from my BA181 trip to New York today:

Hi,

Could you please show a screenshot with the old style ISFD. Did they finally correct the casing of the instruments? Right now they just use the casing of the standalone ISFD for the old instruments, too. It is not simple to notice the difference but it is PMDG. I would be cool if they correct it some time.

Thanx

There are a bunch of different types of these frames - what we did isn't wrong, it's just different than the pic you linked. (also largely a moot point because there are no 200LRs or 777Fs with the separated instruments and very few 300ERs with it)

Beta testing end?)

 

Heh, that's what we're waiting for, but even upon the conclusion of testing I think It'll be a few days after before the official release.

I know, I know. I just hoped having explored the totally insane feature list of the 737 NGX that at some point we could also get those really old style backup instrument frames of the early 777s. :(

We changed them to the older style today, based on a United 200ER.

Awesome :). Did you fly in real time or with auto-cruise?

 

 

I'm fairly sure Luke doesn't even know what time compression is ;-)

(in other words: All the flights i've seen him report on, were real time.)

 

What's time compression?!  B)  :lol:

Even better Ryan,

 

There are no -300ERs whatsoever without the ISFD! All have been delivered with ISFD from service introduction.

All the preview images of the beta testers are just great. Would like to see Emirates. Looking forward to more pictures. Thanks for all the Pictures :wub:

Photographic evidence begs to differ. There are, or were, at least a few flying around with the old style clocks.

Airliners.net has the evidence, amongst others, but I seem to remember hot linking isn't allowed here?

Thomas,

 

Nowhere in my post did I claim that the -300ER wasn't delivered without he old style clocks. In fact, the great majority of -300ERs have the physical clock.

 

In my response to Ryan I said, no -300ER was ever delivered without the ISFD. That is, the single "integrated standby flight display". We were never discussing the clock in this thread.

Clocks being used as a substitute for "gauges", not "time keeping devices".

And yes, the -300ER flew with the classic "clocks", instead of the ISFD. Probably not for long, but it did fly.

What is the 0547z marker? I've never seen that before.

Predictive ETA or Altitude "donut".

You can find this feature on the Fix Page LSK 6R.

 

"An ETA or altitude can be entered in 6R for

the FMS to predict a crossing point at the entered ETA or altitude.

The crossing point is displayed on the ND as a profile circle with an

altitude or time label located on the lateral flight path."

Hey Luke, are you using an ENB preset or any other program that includes shader modifications? The colours from the cockpit seem to "pop" out more.

That was my estimated time to enter ETOPS entered into the fix page

I did not say no -300ER "flew" without the ISFD. I said every -300ER was delivered with it.

 

Indeed, the first -300ER line number 423, did not have the ISFD as it was not ready yet by the time ln:423 was going on the final assembly line. 

 

However all other -300ER prototypes received the -300ER and every single -300ER was delivered to its respective customers with the ISFD. Including the first -300ER which received a extensive re-wiring and re-fit (as all prototypes do) before delivery to JAL. 

 

Hope that clears it up.

Thanks.That's really cool. You ask for something and then it gets added that fast. Thanks!!! B)
