Beta Preview - 747-8i Over New Zealand

Recommended Posts

Good evening Gents,

Some pictures taken last night showing the 747-8i in fictitious Air New Zealand colours. All credit for this livery goes to Pete Sterling, who does amazing work I think we can all agree.

Flight was over ORBX NZSI on a test flight where I had enough time to step outside!

Remember this is a BETA at present, so any errors or oddities are still being worked on. That said, I think PMDG has definitely done a fine job on this model!

Larger formats available directly through the flickr links.

This paint might increase the temperature in the cabin to a maximum 😄

Awesome livery and it looks even better on the shapes of the -8 ❤️

Nice! Is the new Lufthansa livery finished yet?

Saw this on insta yesterday (@iadspotter via @dulles_airport) and thought it was appropriate:


...the only difference is that we didn't paint YK. It's YC.

(So, yes.)

That New Zealand fictional paint job rocks on the -8....New Zealand should consider adopting it!

(Although as alluded to, most airliners are white so they don't soak up to much heat...)

The 3D model of this -8 is, perhaps, the best I've ever seen in FS- round or oval things actually look round or oval...for a sim old-timer such as myself, this day has been long awaited.  I am certainly going to be setting up lots of external views for those somewhat longer flights where the Autopilot has the plane.
