August 2015 - no way. This fall - possible. Next year - probable.

Highly doubt it, the 747v2 will be ready when it's ready, in the mean time fly the 777-300ER :), after all the 77W is flying most of the former 747-400 routes ;).

Ok guys, and thx for your guesses... I'll wait ;-)

I don't suppose you'd have much choice, other than wait. As long as you've been around, I'm surprised you even asked knowing that you're not going to get a release date from PMDG.

One never knows... Things change :-)

 

After all I am served, in as far as the -400 models go, very well server BTW, but I miss the -8i

 

But, as it was mentioned a few weeks ago that it was in internal testing already, and since August 2006 was the release date for the "Queen of the Skies", I just couldn't resist asking :-)

I don't know, from the looks of the updates, I feel it will be out by the end of the year. Just my guess.

Why a topic like this? Only speculations based on nothing.

We all know that it is impossible to guess the release dates of PMDG products. If they say 2015, expect 2016.

You will be Lucy to see it this year, about 6 months away would be my time frame. In PMDG terms, "soon" or even "really soon"

Well you never know, maybe they have an internal target to get it out by Christmas or maybe by next Easter, 50/50 chance at either guess.

After the internal work by development the product must still be beta tested.

Internal testing does not mean beta testing. As has been the case with products at least back to the NGX, we've told you all when products reach the beta stage.

Hmm, ok, I thought that meant beta... My bad... sorry :-(

No harm, in fact this thread provided a little entertainment.  RSR will announce the beta phase about when that gets started and after a PMDG-short-time he lets us start putting pictures out. Don't expect a normal time frame for beta testing... there is none.

I distinctly remember RSR saying 2015 will be the year of the 747 at PMDG. Perhaps he was spot on: at pmdg only, nothing ready for us yet. Maybe 2016 then :)

 

I'm sure she'll be great once out and I'm looking forward to fly the queen of the skies :)

I know where PMDG can look if they need another beta tester. Ive only lived and breathed aviation for as long as I can remember. Professionally though, 21 years now working in aviation. Licensed A&P, Professional Line Service Tech, and frequently called the worlds largest source of useless information. Aviation and otherwise. :)

This will have to be investigated. Could you provide more information? Is it an African or European Swallow? I cannot provide an accurate response as the different varieties of Swallows can have widely varying performance numbers. :D
