  1. From the album: Hangar 1

    Air Canada 747-8I high over the Pacific.
  2. So I flew in to Barcelona today from Nice Côte d'Azur. A short hop and a very pleasant one in the mighty 747-8i. Arriving at El Prat I was pleasantly surprised with the comfort and the facilities. Want to hang out in the terminal watching planes arrive and depart? Latin VFR got you covered! 😁 Want to spend some time in a jetway, inspecting the awesome Queen of the Skies up close? No worries, Latin VFR has this and many other fun features at Barcelona Intl sorted out for you. Perhaps chill out for a while before departing for your next destination, talk to some other travellers or pilots? No problem! 😅 So why don't you hop into your favourite airliner and visit this iconic airport? If you do - you've guessed it - Latin VFR is ready for you! Disclaimer: This post is in no way affiliated by Latin VFR or their partners. I just like their product 😉
  3. Preparing for another test flight from LGAV to WSSS I thought that you might wanted to see some of the new features included in the upcoming PDMG 747-8 expansion pack. As I also say in the video this is still under development so some features might change until the final release Enjoy 🙂
  4. As you can see in the pic (click link below), the FSX logo bleeds through the PMDG 747-8 EFB. I also have the bleed-through problem in the PMDG 777, but not in the NGX or any other aircraft. I uninstalled and reinstalled the 747-8 and it temporarily fixed the problem, but it returned. The EFB opened in a 2D window displays just fine.I've used Steve's DX10 Fixer to no avail. Interestingly this problem does not occur with DX9, but DX9 causes OOMs with this bird so I need to use DX10.Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone have any ideas?

  5. 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. Just leased a 747-8 for my AH2 fleet, so it has a temporary Atlantic Bridge livery at the moment whilst I fly it around a bit and check it out on various routes to see if it works for my airline in terms of suitability, if it does, it'll get a more permanent paint job:
  7. I guess everyone is too busy flying her to post some pics, LOL. Here are a few on my 1st flight, KSFO to KDFW. Checking her out just before departure (I added the Joe Sutter and 45 years logos...the Cargolux included in the package is a different reg). Getting ready for pushback.... In flight, on my way to Dallas. Reviewing the STAR on the FO's EFB (in night mode...I like the view better)...I'm doing the MDANO Transition.
  8. Hello, I was reading something about different airframes of the 747-8 having different MTOW's and a certain "Performance Improvement Package" that reduced the overall airplane weight by around 10,000 pounds, which allowed Boeing to also increase the range to about 8,200NM. I couldn't find any official boeing document other than the "Airplane Characteristics for airport planning" which did state 2 different MTOW's under the 747-8f: 442,253 Kg. (975,000 lbs.) and 447,696 Kg. (987,000 lbs.). I find this pretty interesting, given that the -8 wasn't sold as much and I wouldn't think Boeing would continue to do R&D to that point of increasing the range, reducing the weight of the aircraft and increasing MTOW. I also read that the last airframes that Boeing built (VP-BBY and VP-BBP) have an MTOW of about 472,000 Kg (1,041,000 lbs) or even more. If that is the case, what would be the actual weights and ranges of the 747-8 that you're developing? Would you take the variations into account in say the official liveries you provide us with? Or if not, would other repainters could be able to modify the performance of the plane based on the registration of the plane? I think it would be really cool to see it implemented as one of the wonderful 747-isms and quirks, however I do understand that getting the real numbers for each aircraft and maybe the sim limitations would make it hard. Nevertheless I cannot wait for you to release this amazing simulation of the newest queen, bringing us simmers as close as possible to the real thing. Keep up the good work! -Eduardo Padilla Links to articles: https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/farnborough-landing-gear-tweak-key-to-747-8-future-in-passenger-400464/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_747-8 (under "into service and further development") http://www.ainonline.com/aviation-news/2014-07-14/747-8s-continued-weight-loss-boosts-performance "Official 747-8 Flight Tracking/Production Part 18” subtopic in Airliners dot net
