PMDG Boeing 747 Updated for Prepar3D V4 & V5

PMDG has announced through a forum post that a further update for the Boeing 747 has been made available for Prepar3D V4 and V5.  This release corrects various bugs, and introduces the compatibility with the REX Weather Radar and the ActiveSky Engine compatible with V5 launched last week. The choice of weather radar is done through a menu in the FMS.

Regarding ground steering, the team has added a description of the system in the Introduction Manual, but has not changed the behavior of the aircraft.

The update is available through the PMDG Ops Center only if you have installed the full installer released last week. Otherwise, users will need to go through the full installers.
