B747-8 Beta PIREP

Recommended Posts

Has the FPS with the taxi cam on improved at all in the -8 or is it about the same as the 777?

As far as i know, the 747-8 is not equipped with a taxi cam.

Camera, we don't need no stinking cameras.... 😉. More seriously, we do not currently have any cameras on board (I believe that a few RW airframes do have cams in the EFB area).

I do have one question regarding aircraft configuration. Obviously, there are differences between the -400 and the -8 regarding systems and equipment, but is it possible to load up the aircraft configuration of a -400 and then change only what was necessary or would that cause issues.

Each aircraft is configured based on both it's variant (-400 -400ER -8I or -8F for example), in some cases engine choice, and registration or tail number.  I don't understand the question I guess.  Are you asking if the -400 can be configured to be a -8?  I assume you realize that there is a new wing and new engines as well as a lot of significant changes to systems.  In fact, it is amazing that the -8 resembles the -400 as much as it does but I suspect that is mostly by design to enhance pilot transition.

I think Kevin was referring to aircraft config options on the FMC rather than the real aircraft.

Yes, I am aware there are significant differences between the two variants. What I am asking is, say I load up the -8 and try to load the aircraft configuration of the -400. Would some of the common settings like the TCAS range rings or altitude callouts, for instance, copy over to the -8 or would that cause issues.

I think there are too many differences between the two, for example there is an EFB with its suite of settings and the fuel system is different.  I don't think an attempt mix aircraft ini files would work.

I too find myself looking at the A380 and thinking it looks like a bit of a bland whale.  But I'm certain it is a result of countless aerodynamic simulations and this is what made sense economically.

I'll miss the 747 when it is gone.  I dated a girl in high school who was very young at the time of her initial 747 flight but she remembered the upper deck having a piano.  Her dad was an airline captain.  Can you imagine the cringe factor these days of an airline hauling a PIANO around everywhere they went?  The execs rather tear their own hair out.

I never got to fly on the 747, and it looks like I probably never will.  As popular as the last passenger flight they did to Hawaii (completely booked) one would think they would do a few more of these "special" flights, especially considering that airplane buffs would be willing to pay a little more.  Deck it out in early 70s garb, serve good hot food, great service, bar/piano upstairs and show the current generation what flying used to be about.  If they built this, people would come.
