Watch the PMDG 747-8 In Action [Beta]

Pmdg 747 8 Chewwy

Twitch stream Chewwy94 has been granted special access to the beta version of the upcoming PMDG 747-8. With access to the latest from PMDG, he took to the stream-waves and spent several hours going through new systems, features, view points and more that the community can expect upon release.

Chewwy covers things such as the new on-board systems, the PMDG Rain Maker, the brand new ACARS system and how it links in with the announcement of PMDG Global Flight Ops. There was lots of great things shown off in the 8 hour stream and even a few PMDG faces popped in to say hello.

With the aircraft now really being shown to the world, we can only guess that a release is closer than not. Just to save you time, release dates and prices were not mentioned in the stream by either Chewwy or PMDG developers.
