Korean Airlines | JFK-ICN | Boeing 747-8

Hey IFC!
I discovered the reason why I couldn’t fly certain aircraft without my phone crashing, it’s because my resolution settings were too high. And one of those aircraft was this. I am so happy I am able to fly it again without crashing!

Did you forget to retract the flaps?

@DeltaCs100 @Hardlanding_Hussain Ordinarily yes I would retract the flaps as soon as I reach 220kts in a commercial aircraft. But the Boeing 747 is significantly more fuel efficient throughout the flight with 10 degrees of flaps.

I don’t think it’s a practical thing to do, flaps have a speed limit

Wow. I’m speechless. Great shots!

I’m aware it’s unpractical, and the 747 would never do this irl, but since the 747 has pretty messed up physics in this game I am ok with doing it since it saves you a huge amount of fuel plus keeps the angle of attack more reasonable.

Does 747 IRL do the same thing 787s do? I know 787 is more efficient with flaps 5 as well (maybe even 15 sometimes)

I’m not sure, I’m not sure if it does in real life but it definitely does for some planes in IF

I was refering to using a little bit of flaps during cruise lol

They might if they are especially heavy

Great pictures…
