  1. Hello. I've searching for this everywhere on the internet and found out the Internet doesn't satisfy me at all. I only can gathered answers around other planes like B737 hydraulics and such, but not the B747. I've came up with the question on Quora yet the answers dissapoint me further. This is so frustrating. On Boeing 747-400 hydraulics system, if one of the four system fails in-flight, what would happen to the system? How does other system back-ups the failing system in advance? Would you show me the detailed explaination along with its detailed schematic diagram? True, there are schematics diagram for B747 hydraulics but that's simplified. I need to know the detailed circuitary ones. This is for my assignment and my lecturer requires me to have this kind of explaination. Thank you.
  2. Hello guys. This is my first post here, even though I've been lurking for quite a while now... This is a post to announce a new livery for the 747-400ER Qotsll V3: South African Airways "new" paint. After wanting to fly through Africa, Europe and Middle East I looked for a nice SAA livery, but all I could find was some squishy models with inaccurate color palette and logo distortions (not saying mine is perfect). I then decided to give it a try and here it is. I chose the words (from a real SAA 747 by the way) SHOSHOLOZA for this livery and here is what it means (just copy pasted from Wikipedia): "Shosholoza" is a Fanagalo song that was sung by the mixed tribes of miners mining gold in South Africa. It is a mix of Zulu and Ndebele words, and can have various other South African languages thrown in depending on the singers. It was sung by all-male African workers that were working in the South African mines in a call and response style. The song is so popular in South African culture that it is often referred to as South Africa's second national anthem. Anyway, here is the link for the PTP file: https://nofile.io/f/07MKZOcOjxO/PMDG+747-400ER+V3+South+African+Airways+(Shosholoza)+2018.ptp Please let me know if you find any mistakes or faults regarding the file or the painting. I am open to receive new requests as well. Enjoy. :)

  4. Greetings Fellow Pilots: For anyone who might be interested, I have recently started a video tutorial blog called Training Tips at subsonicflighttraining.com for the 747-400 and the 747-8 (when released). I have been using iFly 747-400, but will be switching to the PMDG version 2 because of its higher fidelity. Like flightdeck2sim.com on the 737, my intent is to use my almost 30 years on the 747-400 as a Captain Instructor Pilot, Check Airmen, and FAA Examiner to highlight some real world procedures and knowledge to assist the flight simmer in enhancing their ability to explore and most importantly have fun with a sophisticated software replication of the iconic whale or queen of the skies, if you prefer. Planned areas of coverage right now are jet basics, but will branch into procedures of normal, non-normals, and line flights. So I invite you to subscribe and your feedback is highly appreciated. Any areas you would like to see for future video blogs, please don't hesitate to give me your request. Personally, as I am entering the twilight of my career, I look forward to joining the VATSIM network and doing some virtual trips. Boy, if I was a young kid again and had all this available to me, I could have been so highly prepared and even more engaged than I was. All I ever had was a aviation pen radio with a headset and a small tuning knob and a little antenna to listen to ATC frequencies standing by an airport fence next to my bike. Now you do this with ease on your phone with an app. Amazing...

  6. Hello. Let me tell what i did before this bug happened. Please read carefully to not interchange the 737/747 i will mention. It is a bit wiered, so thats why i ask to read carefully. Last normal state of the operation center and the 747-400 was the rollback on 1. July and the time after it until i bought the 737-800 yesterday. NOTE: I have the new 747 installer already, wich was said is needed for future updates! First time of the day yesterday when i opened the OC i saw the 737-800 is out. I didnt have a notification of the new 747 update dated 11. July at this time. I bought the 737 (already having the 747 as mentioned) but didnt install it yet. Some hours later i again opened the OC and saw i got a notification of the new update for the 747. The first time i got this patchnotes PMDG 747-400 Queen of the Skies II - Build 3.00.8382 (Released 11JUL17) ================================================================== - 0000000: [Installers] - Updated installer to better handle run prerequisites, repair and modification capability. (rsrandazzo) - 0000000: [General] - Eliminated a potential CTD based on drive location and pathing data (abashkatov) - 0000000: [General] - Optimization. Note that it ends with the "Optimization". I installed this one and browsed around a bit in the livery folder. Then we had a power-shortage due to storm and while inside the OC all power went down for 4h. After getting it back i finally wanted to install the 737 and so i did. I was very surprised that this time i again got another notification of a 747 update, when i opened the OC to download liveries for the 737 i just installed. I checked the patchlog again and this time i found this one PMDG 747-400 Queen of the Skies II - Build 3.00.8382 (Released 11JUL17) ================================================================== - 0000000: [Installers] - Updated installer to better handle run prerequisites, repair and modification capability. (rsrandazzo) - 0000000: [General] - Eliminated a potential CTD based on drive location and pathing data (abashkatov) - 0000000: [General] - Optimization. - 0000000: [General] - Improvements to dynamic lighting. Note that now its ends with dynamic lighting....not with optiizations. But still has same build number and date. Ok i thought, nice now we even have dyn lighting improvments maybe. I installed it but didnt fly it. Now today i again opened the OC and very surprised i saw again a notice of a 747 update.... I installed it again just to see that after i reopen the OC, it reappears. I start the OC in admin mode, did various restarts of the PC already too. I cannot seem to install the last patch. The version remeains at ###.8377 and shows me the new ###.8382. Theres no error when starting the update. The download bar starts to appear and stops a sec later and says its finished. What is the best thing to do now? Thanks, Alex W.
