There is no PMDG 747-800 forthcoming, ever. I certainly wouldn't consider a reference to such a thing as bonafide.

Of course not, just an urge some people seem to need to satisfy as soon as they have the chance to.

Dear fellow flight simulationists and flight stimulators,

In preparation for the forth coming PMDG 747-800, I'd recommend and suggest getting prepared with the Just Planes "747-800 ABC [Air Bridge Cargo]" HD cockpit video (240 mins.)

Happy Holidays!

There is a 747-8i and 747-8F no airplane called a 747-800, I think that is the point of Dan's snark - David Lee

Quite true...

There is no such thing as a 747-800, so, while it's a bit pedantic, do remember that this is aviation, and that we have three main definitions of the word 'night' - each having its own application.

Speak precisely.

Now if only PFPX would release an update to add -8 profiles...

I'm pretty sure we will be able to get accurate templates for the -8i and 8F for pfpx when it is released. 

Maybe Flyprecisely, airlinerperformance.net or others will release some soon?

Now I'm curious. What are the three definitions of night? I only know one.

  1. Period from sunset to sunrise - position lights requirement
  2. Period from 1 hour after sunset to 1 hour prior to sunrise - passenger carriage and currency
  3. End of evening civil twilight to beginning of morning civil twilight - logging

True. Maybe in the next update that they’ve been working on for ages now...

PFPX did have a 777-300ER performance profile for ages. What it doesn't have by default is a "template" for the PMDG add-on and a TOPCAT performance file, but you can edit the weights of any PFPX profile to your liking.

I really hope, if not with TrueGlass, then with a own feature - to see the rain effects soon in P3D v4.1
Just saw it in a departure video taken in a B747-8

Long time lurker, usually just here for news... but I have to ask... why can't we just point out his mistake and correct him?

Likely recurrence fatigue.
