PMDG 747-8 Feature Tour and First Look

Update: Chris, the person who did the video, is actually part of the development team, not the beta team (anymore). We’ve updated the post a bit to reflect this. Thanks to Kyle for pointing this out to us.

Since the release of the PMDG 747-400 Queen of the Skies II, many people have been eager to get their hands on the newer and more technologically advanced version of the aircraft: the B747-8.
