  3. The 747 Classic is one of those aircraft that many simmers have been longing for in recent years, but has seemingly gone ignored by some of the bigger names in the aircraft development community. That is, of course, until back in June of 2018, when Just Flight announced they had taken up the mantle to bring a high-quality rendition of this aircraft to our sims. This announcement was met with much excitement and yet, left the community wanting more. Thanks to the extremely generous folks over at Just Flight, I’m proud to bring you new and exclusive previews on the upcoming 747, as well as a ton of new information on the project sourced from an interview with Just Flight’s own Martyn Northall! The interview with Martyn touches on nearly everything you could want to know about the upcoming 747 Classic, from systems depth, to a potential virtual flight engineer, as well as the variants that Just Flight will be creating. Be sure to stay tuned in the coming days and weeks for some new information on the 747 Classic! Here’s the full interview with Martyn: Thanks for taking the time to talk to us. Our first question is pretty simple, but probably requires a longer answer. Why? Why did you decide to bring the 747 Classic series to the simulator instead of other vintage airlines? We are always on the look out for possible future aircraft that have either yet to be created for FSX/P3D, have been created but not to a complex standard or are from many years ago. The 747 Classic was one of the favourites on our list (I have a model of a British Caledonian 747 Classic in my office) and to be honest we were quite surprised that one wasn’t already available. It’s undoubtedly an iconic aircraft but obviously a very complex type, requiring a significant investment of time and cost. We published the CLS 747-200/300 quite a few years ago and it was a very popular product. We originally envisaged reusing some of the assets from that product but ultimately decided that a ‘clean-sheet design’ was the best option for achieving the standard that we wanted. I believe we’ve got a strong reputation for classic British aircraft, but we’re keen not to get stuck in any one ‘genre’ and the 747 Classic seemed like a logical step towards larger and more complex aircraft. Is this an internal development? How many people are working on the project? What experiences have they had on aircraft development? Yes, this is an in-house product, so the development is being led by the Just Flight development team. That team consists of predominately full-time employees but also external partners, and part-time partners who work on our aircraft alongside their day jobs. It’s a diverse team! There have been at least ten people working directly on the development of the 747, albeit not necessarily all at the same time as the project progresses through several stages (modelling, coding etc.). In addition to the development team there are probably another five people contributing to manuals, marketing and other non-development elements, and then a further 20+ testers. The past experience of our in-house team is quite well known (https://www.justflight.com/category/developed-in-house) but we’ve also brought in new expertise from developers behind some of the popular study-level airliners that have been released for FSX/P3D in recent years. I think it’s fair to say that your internal team has spent a lot of time on creating high quality GA aircraft as of late – why the change now to something much bigger and much more complex? We’ve always strived for variety in what we develop to keep things fresh, for the sake of our own sanity as well as attempting to cater to the wide-ranging tastes of our customers. Since 2013 we have developed everything from a PA28 and C152 to a Canberra PR9 and Tornado, and a L-1011 Tristar. We’ve released quite a few GA aircraft in recent years but that is as much a result of the shorter development times for aircraft of that scale than a deliberate focus on that one genre. Whilst continuing to develop GA aircraft for FSX, P3D, X-Plane 11 and Aerofly FS 2, the next couple of years will see the development of several airliners. The VC10, 747, and 146 are already public knowledge but we have at least two more in the early stages of development. We are continuing to invest in the expansion of our development team and that has brought in not only additional capacity for a greater number of product releases each year but also a wealth of experience with complex aircraft, and our goal is to develop complex airliners alongside our existing GA and military product range to offer the best possible variety to our customers. In terms of system depth and usability, how detailed are you going to make the 747 Classic? Modelled systems, failures, etc? As with previous aircraft such as the Tornado GR1 and Vulcan, our focus is on providing highly functional and realistic representations of the real aircraft, including all the core systems – electrical, fuel, hydraulic etc. Those systems will very closely match the real aircraft based on our studies of a vast collection of reference material and the involvement of air and groundcrew with real-world 747 Classic experience. The 747 will bypass some of the FSX/P3D limitations by running systems ‘externally’ to the simulator, such as engine parameters and fuel flow. We’ve also been developing a new INS unit for a while now and that will be included for authentic navigation. Failures will be simulated due to the way the systems are programmed, for example a failure of a specific transformer-rectifier or AC bus in the electrical system would result in the correct subsequent failures and switching logic, but we’re not aiming for a Level-D simulator. Our business model is obviously quite different to those of developers such as PMDG and FS Labs. 747 Classic hasn’t been our sole focus for multiple years with a corresponding £120 price-tag, so decisions had to be made about what features, including failures, were worthwhile for routine flights. One of strengths as a developer is that we listen and react to, and actively encourage, feedback and suggestions from our customers, so we will continue to build on the complexity and functionality of our aircraft in response to that. Will you be making use of the latest technology such as PBR texturing or windshield effects? We are continuing to explore the technical possibilities that are emerging as a result of new features in Prepar3D such as PBR materials and windshield effects. Our aim is to include as many of these features as possible and we expect that PBR materials will become standard on all our future aircraft including 747 Classic, just as they already are on our X-Plane 11 aircraft. As demonstrated by some of the recent announcements from other FSX/P3D developers, continuing to develop for FSX alongside P3D v4 creates quite a lot of extra work and in some cases constrains our ability to add new P3D-specific functionality, but we are working hard to address that (and our intention is to continue supporting FSX). The 747 Classics was a very hands-on aircraft, requiring 3 people to operate it. Are you offering some kind of virtual flight engineer to take some of the load off the user? This is an area that we will provide more details on in future project updates as it is dependent on many other areas of the systems programming, but as with our past aircraft one of our key goals is to develop an aircraft with excellent usability regardless of your skill-level. The 747 Classic has a formidable Flight Engineer’s panel with controls for many critical systems, so we will cater for the single-pilot aspect of operating aircraft within a simulation environment, including automation where appropriate. You have so far announced the 747-100, 747-200/F, what are the chances we’ll see other variants of the aircraft, such as the SP, SOFIA and -300, depending on how it is received by the community? Following on from the -100, -200 and -200F, we are developing the -300, SP, VC-25 (‘Air Force One’) and E-4B (‘Advanced Airborne Command Post’) variants. This was in direct response to feedback from the community as there was plenty of interest in those variants. They are all derivatives of the -200 and will likely share common virtual cockpits and systems rather than each being a unique product, so will form an expansion pack for 747 Classic owners. We’ll bring you more details on those following the release of the base pack. There are other variants and hundreds of livery options, so much like with our PA28s, we are looking at building on the release of 747 Classic to create a series of 747 products. Do you, or any of the development team, have any stories about the 747 Classis series you’d like to share? Either from real life past adventures or during development. A key requirement for any in-house aircraft project is to get access to the real-world aircraft. In the case of the 747 Classic, we visited an aircraft at Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome to take hundreds of photos of every part of the exterior and interior. It was a great experience for an aviation enthusiast – we were dropped off beside the aircraft, given a torch and instructed to access the interior by climbing into the avionics bay near the nose-gear and out through a hatch in the floor of the first-class cabin. Walking through the dark, empty interior of a 747 makes you truly appreciate the scale of the aircraft. We had the opportunity to explore the entire aircraft, looking in all the compartments such as the crew-rest areas that you typically wouldn’t get access to. There are several 747 Classics at Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome and one of them is stripped bare and is occasionally used for Christmas work parties! Anything else you would like to add? Thanks for the continued support from the community, including FS Elite and all your readers who we regularly chat with in the comments sections. Just Flight is undergoing an exciting period of growth as we continue to evolve from being a traditional publisher and webstore to one of the largest developers in the industry. Last year was a record one for us as we released 11 of our own products, and we’ve been really pleased to see all the great feedback. The coming year will see the release of a wide variety of airliners, GA and military aircraft, as well as scenery and utilities for FSX, P3D, X-Plane 11 and Aerofly FS2, so there’s plenty of work to keep our development team busy!

  5. Following their initial PBR progress update two weeks ago, PMDG’s Robert Randazzo has dropped some new mouth-watering previews of the 747-400 QOTS II in all of it’s PBR glory, marking 50 years since the first Boeing 747 took flight. Also, he’s provided a short update in regards to the upcoming PBR update. The below previews of the 747 in its classic launch livery (N401PW) is fully tricked out in what PMDG believes is their final round of changes to PBR rendering on a fully metallic 747-400. Bringing your attention to the reflections on the metal body, you see how PBR breathes air into the queen’s lungs dynamically reflecting the surrounding bed of clouds and skyline from a couple of angles. Following the previous set of previews, take notice of how many improvements and changes have been made in the way PMDG has treated the differences in reflective quality along lap joints and rivet lines in the skin since the last update. The previews don’t end there, included also is some shots of N662US, another one of the first production airframes. Clearly demonstrated in the shots below, is how different the reflection is on the painted surface in comparison to the bare metal surface. PMDG has finished up their PBR implementation for now and is preparing to push it out to the testing team this week. It is expected to be a short test period and once complete, the update should promptly be pushed out via the PMDG Operations Center. In celebration of British Airways’ 100th birthday and the aircraft they are said to be painting in the legacy BOAC livery, PMDG has released a paint of what it should look like (G-BYGC) which can be obtained from the PMDG Operations Center. Furthermore, PMDG will be consolidating Prepar3D v4 compatibility effective with their next update cycle, only v4.4+ of Prepar3D will be supported going forward meaning if you want to obtain the next update, you’ll need to be on v4.4 or greater. This change has no impact on FSX or Prepar3D v3 users. Randazzo will be back in a couple of days with new information on PMDG’s new forum system, the NG3, Global Flight Operations and PMDG’s view on FSX/P3D development moving forward. He might even slide in a remark or two in relation to X-Plane! We’ll endeavour to let you know once this update has been released and of any future update posts on PMDG’s forum.

  7. Sensational three-night transport of Corendon Boeing 747 The Boeing 747-400 that Corendon Hotel & Resorts recently acquired will start a three-day journey across the fields bordering Schiphol Airport on Tuesday February 5th. The 150-ton airplane will be wheeled from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol across 17 ditches, the A9 highway and a provincial road before reaching its final destination – the back garden of the Corendon Village Hotel in Badhoevedorp, which has recently become one of the villages of the larger Haarlemmermeer municipality. Corendon colours KLM’s former ‘City of Bangkok’ Boeing 747 made its last commercial flight late last year after which it was flown to Rome to be painted in Corendon colours. Back in Amsterdam, recycling company AELS stripped the aircraft of all serviceable parts. Dutch transport company Mammoet – specialized in heavy jobs like this one – will use a self-propelled trailer to transport the plane over three nights – February 5th (starts at 22.30 h) Friday 8th (starts at midnight) and Saturday 9th (starts at midnight). On the way, the aircraft will make a two-day stop in a field just off the A9 motorway – hidden behind a large advertising cloth – making sure passing drivers are not taken by surprise or distracted. The second and last stop will be just across the road opposite the Corendon Village Hotel. Crossing a highway The most exciting part of the Boeing’s journey should be the middle session as it will then become the first aircraft to cross highway A9 by land at a pace never faster than 5 km/h. After reaching its final destination, the aircraft will be converted into a ‘Corendon Boeing 747 Experience’, which will be open to the public next summer. Live stream An amazing number of nearly 9.000 people applied online for a ticket in order to be able to watch the crossing of the plane from close range. For safety and logistical reasons only 6.000 of those eager aviation fans could be admitted. The unfortunate applicants, however, will be able to watch every movement of the plane at home as a live stream will be available to serve all those interested in the gigantic operation on www.corendonmission747.nl Corendon Village Hotel The Corendon Village Hotel in Badhoevedorp opened in June 2018 in the former headquarters of Sony. With over 680 rooms, suites and apartments it is the largest hotel in the Netherlands. SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK : https://www.corendonhotels.com/corendon-mission-747/
  8. PMDG Release the 747-400/8 QOTSII Update PMDG has just released their latest update for the 747 Queen of the Skies II.

Please Note: If you no longer wish to receive FS2Crew News, please click the 'Manage your Subscription" link found at the bottom of this newsletter. [4 January 2019] Priority NOTAM: Version 1.3 for FS2Crew: PMDG 747 QOTS II Edition Released! --Adds FREE support (although limited) for the new PMDG 737-8 models-- Please visit: www.fs2crew.com FS2Crew is happy to announce that Version 1.3 for the PMDG 747 QOTS II is now available. This is a significant update for the PMDG 747 QOTS II. It is a free update. The update is built into the main installer only. There is no stand-alone update installer. You do not need to uninstall the current version. To obtain the update, please login to your FS2Crew account (the link is on the top of the FS2Crew website), and click "COMPLETED ORDERS", then re-download and re-install the package again. You do not need to uninstall any earlier version. Change Log: Version 1.3 Fixes and Changes: The 8 model is now supported for free, but with some limitations: 747-8 USERS READ THIS PART CAREFULLY!!! 1. FS2Crew 747 QOTS II only supports the 8 model in P3D V4, not FSX. The reason is due to a panel window limit in FSX. Again, this is all the more reason to move to P3D V4. FSX is old and out-of-date. FSX is yesterday's news. It's time to move forward to P3D 64 bits. It's the future. Do NOT try manually copying the FS2Crew entries into the 8 model's panel.cfg in FSX or you'll mess up the plane! 2. Due to SDK, legal, and technical limits, the FS2Crew FO cannot interface with the Electronic Checklist System(ECL), so you'll be using the same paper checklists you used in the 400. 3. How to add FS2Crew to the 8 model in P3D V4: You must run the FS2Crew PMDG 747 QOTS II Config manager again and re-enable FS2Crew. This is necessary to add the FS2Crew entries to the 8 model's panel.cfg file. Anti-Ice callouts fixed. Other minor bug fixes.

  20. Felis Announces 747-200 Classic In Development Felis, the developer behind popular vintage airliners for X-Plane such as the TU-154M and AN-24RV, has announced the start of development on the next addition to the stable – the Boeing 747-200 Classic. In the post on the X-Plane.org forums, Felis says that he wanted to make a classic variant of the 747 without the modern equipment such as digital displays while retaining fully analogue gauges and the inclusion of LTN72 or LTN92 Inertial Navigation Systems (though those with a more modern understanding of navigation will have the choice of the X-Plane default FMC). He also says that he intends to produce a 1970s-esque Air Force One variant, giving the capability of air-to-air refuelling. So far the development is in very early stages, but Felis says that blueprints, FCOM and AMM documentation have all been acquired, along with plenty more documents that have been found online in order to aid the accuracy of this aircraft throughout the development phase. As far as progress goes, he did initially show off two very early external model screenshots with windows and doors in place, mentioning that cargo doors and technical holes are on the to-do list next, and has since posted several more renderings too (seen in this post). Later in the thread, Felis begins to answer questions from users of the forum. In doing so, he implies that there is an intention to model all engine variants, but this will depend on the availability of information relating to these. Furthermore, the plans of a passenger cabin (much like the developer’s TU-154M product) remain up in the air with a direction for it being undecided due to development time and end-user system requirements. Another question that many reading this may be asking too, is “what about a -300, -200SUD and/or 747SP models later on?” as user avgaskoolaid did. This writer would be overjoyed to see an SP variation, but Felis says that there are no firm plans at this point in time, however, the idea will be revisited after release and will be based on sales data.

  24. A few minutes ago, developer SSG published a new update for their popular Boeing 747-8 Series, bringing this particular Queen of the Skies to version 1.81. See the changelog: Do note this is the final update the X-Plane 10 version of the aircraft is going to receive, according to the developer. The team also asks not to “use x-updater to update your B748 to the latest version, it will not work. Please enter in your store download area and then pick your version XP10, XP 11 or both. The SSG B748 don’t support the x-updater. actually, it is not compatible”.
