Boeing 747-100 beta version 0.9

4,712 MaxB17  3.0 years ago

Hello Simple Planes Users ! After realising that I do not have a ( real, self-build ) long range aircraft in my list, I decided to build a replica of the famous Boeing 747. ( Since I am a huge fan of older jets, it is of course a classic version ).This is, as the title says a beta version and I planned huge update for this aircraft! Important things: DO NEVER PUSH AG7,NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS! The flaps act more as speedbrakes to slow the plane down. ´´´ALLWAYS land and takeoff with a 5 deg. AOA I would be happy to receive a feedback and/or upvote, if you like it. :D FINALLY, our before takeoff checklist is completed and we have t/o clearance. Captain, you have control. ;)

    @MaxB17 I can see this being a great plane for the community. It does take time to make the better planes like my 737MAX U project. Excited to see the finished product!!

    :D

    Thank you very much for your feedback and support! Unfortunately my 741 has several issues, like for example the unrealistic flaps, cockpit, engines, Landing gear and a flipping elevator ( at high speeds ), and much more. But I am confident, that I can improve that in the next update(s), which will come out in a few hours/ days. The red stripes on the right wing are there on purpose ( made for exact copying in the first place, I later decided to let them there to give the plane more of a prototype look ). And btw, yes, I made this plane 100% all by myself! ^^ @what1do2you3think

    I would be surprised if you made this all by yourself! The engines look good to! Look like the JT9D and has a similar look to the body. The unrealistic factor is the landing gear and the flaps. It’s good though! Good job :)
