Taxi Camera

Recommended Posts

I always assumed that the Boeing 747-8 had taxi cameras like the Boeing 777-300ER. Is this the case? I haven't been able to find it with the
PMDG 747-8 so I'm thinking this was very likely my misunderstanding. I'm surprised that Boeing didn't offer it, being that this is such a large, and very long, airplane. In any case, I'm up to the challenge of learning to taxi this beast without the aid of one if need be 😉

I saw a video the other day of the first Cargolux 748 Landing in Vienna, and the PIC said that sadly Boeing does not offer any outside cameras. Not sure if its true, but the guy with the white shirt and the cargolux badge said so. 

Good thing Chaseplane is a thing 😉 My 748's have taxicams

Interesting. I was definitely surprised for it not to be on this plane.

PMDG can you confirm this?

Yea I love chaseplane but never thought about using it to help me taxi! Might have to give it a go if I start having too many problems with the mains cutting into the grass, but so far so good!

Cameras is not standard equipment in the -8 indeed. It seems that Lufthansa like to do all sorts of modifications 🙂

They may think planes can take everything like their cars. But... Mr Newton is always there to take a bite.

Eh, I'm old myself. I've had people write things, and I read them as something else far worse, so you're good.
