Product information "Boeing 747-8 Inter Anniversary Edition"

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). SSG is releasing the Intercontinental passenger version first and the Freighter will come later as a free upgrade for those who purchase the new version upon release.

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
