    747-8 Stream. Now

    My apologies. I only checked in while he was descending in the terminal area.

    *cough cough* Master Caution and EICAS message...

    Sound too loud.

    This. Noise cancelling headsets were a must on the -400.

    Landing gear message

    Typically the gear handle is centered with the first movement of the flap handle, which should be more than enough time for the gear to retract and the doors to close.

    By chance are you using EZDok?

    PMDG 747-400 V3 Go Around Tutorial?

    Be sure to set the missed approach altitude on the MCP once you've coupled up on the glideslope.

    I just had an exasperating back-and-forth with their representative (out of respect for him I will not identify him by name) addressing this very issue. Had the bundle been available at the time I purchased the previous version I'd have bought it but it was not. He basically informed me that the deal was the deal and that was that. Someone upgrading from one or the other to the bundle is merely attempting to spend more money and is clearly demonstrating continued support of the product. But that does not seem to matter to them. All in all a disappointing experience considering the generally high quality of their products.

    B747-8 Beta PIREP

    I believe there was a request for the POLAR livery... ...and ATLAS/PANALPINA...

    The Swire Group at work- HONG KONG TRADER pushing now!

    Been there, done that! Look forward to seeing it in either Atlas or Polar livery!

    PMDG Announced Global Flight Operations at FSE 2018

    Agreed! To all those who expressed their "disappointment," remember that PMDG is under no obligation to satisfy anyone else's expectations. I participate in a VA but I'm looking forward to trying out this new feature, as well as the new airframes that are forthcoming.

    Current 747 Passenger Routes

    Correct. We discontinued that service a short time ago.
  12. Hugely impressive and it brings the time you're investing in this model's development into focus. Can't wait to fly her!

    Lost in Space!

    I wonder which version of FSUIPC they're up to by then!
  14. So I've just started watching "Lost in Space" on Netflix. Very entertaining and an interesting reboot.
  15. Thanks! Took an online chat and an update to some USB drivers and Oculus' drivers to get it sorted out.
