##SPECIALTIES

The 747-300 features a 23-foot-4-inch-longer (7.11 m) upper deck than the -200.The stretched upper deck has two emergency exit doors and is the most visible difference between the -300 and previous models. Before being made standard on the 747-300, the stretched upper deck was previously offered as a retrofit, and appeared on two Japanese 747-100SR aircraft.The 747-300 introduced a new straight stairway to the upper deck, instead of a spiral staircase on earlier variants, which creates room above and below for more seats.Minor aerodynamic changes allowed the -300’s cruise speed to reach Mach 0.85 compared with Mach 0.84 on the -200 and -100 models, while retaining the same takeoff weight.


##MODELS
Boeing 747-300 was Produced in Three Production Models- 747-300 the passenger variant with only 56 Produced, 747-300SR a short range, high-capacity domestic model, was produced for Japanese markets with a maximum seating for 584 with only 4 Produced and 747-300M ,it features cargo capacity on the rear portion of the main deck, similar to the -200M, but with the stretched upper deck it can carry more passengers with only 21 Produced. The Production ended with only 81 ever produced and it was soon replaced by more advanced 747-400

I think our Boeing 747 stockpile is pretty good as it is.

I’d take GA over this

I would actually quite like this. Even though I’ve commented that I prefer Military and GA aircraft instead of Trash Haulers for the next couple of updates, this is great! Should be added with the 777-300! Maybe a 747 rework will give us the -SP, -100 and -300. (Fingers crossed 🤞🏻)

PIA Livery also needed

I’d agree. Yet on a side note, people still request more 737s. 😒

Looks exactly like the 747-400 we already have in infinite flight, I don’t want to be flying in the skies of Australia looking over to find a -300 thinking it’s a -400, I mean… you can barely tell the difference!

I see more livery requests than anything. And it’s not bad, but it’s not the most important thing we should request…

I do not understand the difference between this and the -400

I wonder why you liked that example so much? 😁😁😁

There is some differences between this and the Boeing 747-400. This plane does not have winglets, rather it has the “spiky tips” found on other variants of the 747 (Excluding the B744 and B748) and what seems to be the 707. This has a smaller range than the 747-400 (and even the 747-200B!), which is essential since we now have fuel consumption and global Confirmed. The 747-300 has also the capacity of a 747-400, and also has the cockpit like the 747-200 where it adds a flight engineer, but minuses the glass. Also, notice the engines are different, which were the Pratt & Whitney JT9D, the Rolls Royce RB-211-524 or General Electric CF6 (Not to be confused with the CFM56). The 747-300 first flew in 1982, whereas the 747-400 flew in 1989.

If I could write exactly more than a paragragh explaining the difference between this and the 747-400, I can say that the 747-300 should be added. 👌🏻

I guess you have to look closer then to realise it doesn’t have winglets and the engines are different. Confusing it may, but it would be a great candidate for an addition with the 747-SP and 747-100. ;-)

The Boeing 777-200LR isn’t different from the 777-200ER (Apart from range, that also applies to the 743 and 744 as well as my 773 and 77W), and yet it was still added. But I was upset that the original 777-300 wasn’t added. :-(

Winglets are also not present in the 747-400D

I feel like this is the 747-200/-400 forgotten brother.

The 200LR has derated -115Bs from the 77W and also uses the raked wingtips, missing on the -200ER. It has a higher MTOW compared to the -200ER as well as optional fuel tanks in the rear cargo hold. I wouldn’t call these changes not different!

Is you guys conversation off topic? Think about.

Why did you open it again if it was already closed

I had taken permission for MishaCamp

The 747-300 isn’t that bad. It’s a classic 747-400, minus the winglets and plus the Flight Engineer. Not to also mention the Engines from the B742 and a smaller range than the B742.

Fact: KLM had “747-300’s”, they were actually 747-200’s with the Upper Deck stretched. These were called 747-200SUD’s. Interesting fact, eh? KLM needs to be on the B743 even though it never existed!
