  1. Ha ha. Technically, though, it is no longer Precision Manuals Development Group. Their name is now officially, just PMDG, kind of like how Federal Express officially became FedEx a while back.
  2. Ralph was a giant in his day. 747 Ready for Pushback was one of the first real study sims for MSFS, and it remained popular long after it was out of date. Ralph was also deeply involved with Globe Cargo VA, which originally was built exclusively around 747RFP, but later expanded to other study sims as well. His work touched many people.
  3. Has anyone seen what Richard Branson is up to with the 744? https://www.businessinsider.com/virgin-orbit-launcher-one-rocket-cosmic-girl-jet-2018-10 Wouldn't It be a hoot if PMDG brought this the us down the road? Andrew Jones
  4. So I take it that GFO will roll out at a later date, and will not release at the same time as the 748? I'm not implying it was supposed to, but I was just never quite clear on the road plan for that. Andrew Jones
  5. Uh-oh, you just had to put that idea in his head, Alex, didn't you? Now RSR is going to hold back the 748 for another six months so he can implement and beta test it 😉 Andrew Jones
  6. Hmmm. Is that you hanging on for dear life just inside in the nose landing gear bay. I'm guessing it got really windy in there once the wheels dropped. Andrew Jones
  7. As long as we are bringing Elvis into this, then how about a Lockheed Jetstar? Didn't he own one of those? It has four engines too, so RSR should be happy :-)
  8. I thought some might appreciate this. http://travelskills.com/2017/02/23/united-flies-boeing-747-sfo-lax/
  9. No no no. You guys have it all wrong :-) I think the next PMDG project will be a brand new stand-alone flightsim platform, custom designed by PMDG from the ground up, which will include converted PMDG 777, 744, NGX, and DC6 as default aircraft. Just imagine what that would be like? It would be the sim to end all sims. Heck maybe we could crowd fund it. Surely most of us would pitch in a few hundred bucks for the above. I know I would. Fun to think about anyway...
  10. Agreed. The procedure variation in the videos is like dependent on whether the PF is the Captain or the FO.
  11. Simple, the people who wrote that article made a mistake.
  12. I agree it would be handy. Different kinds of simmers have varying needs, which often vary from strict reality, and having the ability to customize this would be great, just as you have made available many other realism options on the plane (A/P engagement, A/T disconnect during in HOLD mode .etc)
