Boeing 747 Rework


#1

The 747 is an amazing plane but there are some amazing features about it, that aren’t in IF.

About The 747
The Boeing 747 is an American wide-body commercial jet airliner and cargo aircraft, often referred to by its original nickname, “Jumbo Jet”. Its distinctive “hump” upper deck along the forward part of the aircraft has made it one of the most recognizable aircraft, and it was the first wide-body airplane produced. Manufactured by Boeing’s Commercial Airplane unit in the United States, the 747 was originally envisioned to have 150 percent greater capacity than the Boeing 707, a common large commercial aircraft of the 1960s. First flown commercially in 1970, the 747 held the passenger capacity record for 37 years.

The four-engine 747 uses a double-deck configuration for part of its length and is available in passenger, freighter and other versions. Boeing designed the 747’s hump-like upper deck to serve as a first–class lounge or extra seating, and to allow the aircraft to be easily converted to a cargo carrier by removing seats and installing a front cargo door. Boeing expected supersonic airliners—the development of which was announced in the early 1960s—to render the 747 and other subsonic airliners obsolete, while the demand for subsonic cargo aircraft would remain robust well into the future. Though the 747 was expected to become obsolete after 400 were sold, it exceeded critics’ expectations with production surpassing 1,000 in 1993. By April 2018, 1,544 aircraft had been built, with 24 of the 747-8 variants remaining on order. [Wikipedia]

My Opinion

The 747 is a beautiful aircraft and should definitely be reworked to make it even better. It deserves a rework. It has been in the game since December 2014. If the Devs decided to rework the Queen I can see a lot of people flying it.

A fully functional cargo/nose door on the freighter versions would be amazing on this bird!


#3

@Damian have to agree with you there


#4

Got my [very rare] vote! I would love to fly this more!


#5

I’m gonna clear up a vote for this!


#6

I had to vote for this. The 747 hold a special place in my heart. It was not only the first flight I took, it was also the first flight overnight. That’s why I placed a vote here.


#7

I am surprised to see that this hasnt been requested before…
Nice request!


#8

It has been requested before but the thread wasn’t very detailed so I asked a mod to remake this thread.


#9

Had to free up a vote for this.
Though the previous rework corrected lots of things, the 747 series is lacking compared to the 787s, MD/DCs and the CRJ7.


#10

Would be nice indeed, but other planes such as the A330/A340, or the A380 should get a rework first.


#11

What about the 747-8F (as its own plane - not having cargo planes as part of the 747-8I).


#12

Gear tilt and winn flex would be nice!!


#13

I don’t vote much, as many feature request I consider a ‘nice to have’.
But for this one I have to vote. I love this aircraft.
Nice and well written request!


#14

I would love to see this rework happen.


#15

You got my vote! Sounds like a great rework!


#16

I like the cargo idea but don’t like the 747. Got my vote though.:-)


#17

I only had to read the topic for you to get my Vote. I love flying the Dash 8 model, and I would fly it even more after a rework. Thank you for creating this.


#18

Uhhhh…you do know that this is a Reworked request for the Boeing 747?


#19

747 Dash 8. Yes I am aware.


#20

Ohhhh…my bad. I understood the Bombardier Dash 8 Q400. Sorry about that but thanks for the vote!
