For the 50th Anniversary of the Boeing 747, SSG is proud to announce the release of its long awaited follow-on to the SSG 747-8 Series.

This is no mere update, in many ways it is a whole new aircraft, starting with the base model in Plane Maker working up to the 3D external model, 3D cockpit and systems/displays. It includes a new menu system using a tablet and a new sound set from Turbine Sound Studios (TSS).

NEW: Passengers & Cargo Versions included

The entire external 3D model for v2 has been redone, including the following:

  • All new fuselage closely modeled on the real one with added details
  • Each door can be opened individually and is more detailed
  • dded animations and details (almost all parts that can open/move on the aircraft are modeled).

  • The entire cockpit 3D model has been largely redone and completely retextured.
  • New overhead panel and buttons/switches
  • New forward panel and buttons/switches
