As many of you already know, Joe Sutter, named the “Father of the 747”, sadly passed away this week on 30AUG16 at the young age of 95. Let’s all pay our respects and appreciation for this great man and his achievements during his long life as well as his contributions to the one passion that has brought us all together, aviation.

Ok thankyou

Let me tell you something which will help all the 747 pilots
On the bottom of the screen in the game convert one of the thingamajings to (Bearing to next) after you draw your flightplan this helps to fly much easily
And set the vertical speed for landing with the help of the Small circle on Full Hud and center it on the Runwfay Number while landing

Will be there in the 747-200 may he rest in peace,
