hello every one,
I recently downloaded the POSKY latest version of their 767 freeware, man it looks incredible.....not an expert at flying these things but it is just cool to fly and look at!
I was wondering if any one knew of a comparable freeware 747 400 ....
or some thoughts as to what is the best looking 747 freeware out there. and consequntely where to downlosd it from

Another freeware is @ www.meljet.com but is the same age as the posky.
If you want payware the best 747-200 is at http://www.panelshop.com/
The best 747-400 was recently released over @ http://www.precisionmanuals.com/
Both cost a bit, you will be pleased.
Thats all there is to offer.
PS have you tried the posky 747-400? It is also freeware.

By all accounts the PMDG one is the dogs dangly bits and worth every penny.

I love the 747-200 RFP-very nice panels and a great 300 page manual as well.

Yeah.dont be playing around here ...go and get PMDG's 747-400. It is fantastic...in fact its bloody unbelievable! A real world airline Captain has reviewed it in this months PC Pilot...he gives it the thumbs up.
It takes a bit of mastering and is not for the beginner. After saying that if you are willing to read the manuals and have a bit of patience you will get a real sense of what it is like to fly this fantastic aeroplane.

I mean absolutely no offence with this, BUT ..
.. when someone posts that they're looking for FREEWARE comparable to the POSKY packages, they really aren't looking for PAYWARE with 300-page MANUALS and REAL-LIFE PROCEDURES ..
Just an honest observation, that's all :) Carry on.

Don't dive head-first into the PMDG 747, the 737 is quite complicated for someone looking to just fly. It's more for those who are looking to recreate the entire RW experience, from startup to shutdown. The POSKY model can be alittle annoying because I've noticed their new planes come overloaded with fuel, so if you don't edit it, it will be a burden to take off, same thing with the 747. The easier way to go is the Meljet 747 since it was featured in college programming classes.

thanks for all the suggestions.....Yeah I am really just a begginnner, so I guess I wanted something simple....I guess I will give he posky one and me Meljet one a try...
However I looked at the pdmg site..wow that looks cool...however I feel that I am not ready for something that good yet..once I get decent at flying the big jets I will defenetly consider buying some payware like that or like the level-D 767.
is there something comparable to this for airbus??? i.e like the pdmg or the level-D??? just wondering for the future

IF you mean payware, PSS pretty much has the definitive Airbus packages atm, but what many people do is get the PSS panel, and combine it with the IFDG A320s or POSKY A330/340. But PSS comes in a full package, with VC if that's what you're looking for. The model may be a little dated, but it still looks good.
