  1. Time to hit the beach. We're on approach towards the runway when this happens. The people on the right side of the plane certainly got quite the view. Clearing the fence. Would you really want to be standing back there. Touchdown. After a quick turn, it's time to get out of here. We're making the turn towards the runway. Lined up and ready to go. Powering up the four PW4062s and getting the good old Boeing 747-400 ready to go. And we're off.
  2. Thanks.
  3. I guess that also depends on why you fly and how much time you have to fly. I've flown the Boeing 747-200B in the past, Project Opensky merged with the Ready For Pushback panel. When you have to monitor each and every system, that can take quite a bit of time, and whilst I used to have that kind of time available, I no longer have that kind of time available to sit there and monitor systems. With the Boeing 747-400, I can either increase the simulation rate and/or leave it for a bit whilst I go do what I need to do.
  4. Can't help you there, except to say that the Boeing 747-400 V1 for FS9 did not have the callout, either.
  5. It's there. The question is why aren't you getting it. Start from 10:27.
  6. I haven't flown anything else since release, either. Matter of fact, I haven't even really touched FS9 all that much as I was using FS9 prior to the release of the 747, and the only time I even looked at FS9 since release was when I was assisting other users in technical issues on other planes.
  7. That ultimately depends on your connection speed. It definitely didn't take 25 minutes for the updates to take place on my end. Five minutes tops.
  8. It certainly helps to read the manuals, as they will tell you where the clickspots are.
  9. Best to submit a support ticket.
  10. I would think when you're taking off and you've established a positive rate of climb.
  11. I couldn't do a video like this if my life depended on it. You did good with this one.
  12. Thanks.
  13. Doesn't NOT have it? I didn't think the 747 had a 2D panel at all.
  14. On the PMDG Boeing 747-400 V3 (I can't vouch for any other plane since I don't have them apart from the Boeing 747-400 V1, and even then, I've never used the TOGA switch on that plane, so I don't even know where it is), if you're sitting in the Captain's seat, there is a screw to the left of the Auto-throttle switch. If you're sitting in the First Officer's seat, there is a screw to the right of the autopilot master buttons.
  15. I'm not sure that either the 747 or the 777 came with a 2D cockpit anyhow.
