That’s right, PMDG have officially announced that their upcoming 747-400 Queen of the Skies II is now in BETA!

There’s loads of new details coming straight from PMDG, so I will do my best to summarise the important stuff:

  • The 747-400 will be the first of the QOTS product line to be released
  • The current plan is to release both FSX and P3D versions of the 747-400 at the same time. If issues do come up (who knows), then the wait time should be relatively short.
  • As the product is now in beta, we should start to see more screenshots, updates and videos from those lucky beta testers
  • Some key components in the simulation engine have been changed, which will also benefit the 777 and the NGX in the future
  • Sound will feature heavily in the 747, just as it did in the 777
  • Some major updates will come after the release (unless they sneak in before hand). More details of which will come soon
  • New techniques have been used for the external lighting to help capture the beauty of the variable brightness of the landing lights
  • The base package will include THREE unique engine models – each with own core engine and sound package.
  • There will be a HUGE number of options and configurations available to fit your favourite airline
  • There is further surprises, but it looks like we’ll have to guess:

Oh- and surprises… yes…  surprises…  they told me i’m not allowed to tell you about the….  <transmission garbled>.   Dangit.  That is precisely why we needed a <transmission garbled>.
