What are exactly the differences between the 787 aircraft? Other than the liveries being different.
The length, range etc
The rest is below:
Length, range, capacity, and a few other things.
Does it have any impact in-game? Any in-game differences?
They all fly relatively the same, but for me the 787-8 feels lighter to fly while the 787-9 and 787-10 fly the same.
Not much different, It’s like comparing B777-200ER and B777-300ER 😉
Each time you add a number, you get about 20 more seats.
One is a Marker, One is a Pencil, One is a Pen.
They all have the same engine power so the lighter 787-8 is going to feel more powerful and agile than the longer 787-9 and even longer 787-10
There were some upgrades that Boeing put into the 789 that weren’t ready yet for the 788, including:
- Larger tyres + brakes, wider gear trucks
- a 2-piece tailfin on the 789
- hybrid laminar-flow control system (leading edge of fin, tailplane)
- lighter + simpler cockpit surround structure
- increase in engine thrust
- more flap settings
- increased MTOW
that’s aside from the stretch that also occurred
I think @Patrick_U covered the pencil joke that’s been beaten to death, too late
Ok. So the 787-8 feels lighter. I get it now. One isn’t necessarily easier to land, right?
The 787-10 feels heavy when I first flew it in IF
I made a lot of tail strikes on my takeoff roll on that aircraft :P The others weren’t that heavy and I never made any tail strikes on one of them.
