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.
