PMDG 747-400/8 QOTSII, PBR + 32-bit Update Released

PMDG has released a new product update for the Boeing 747-400/8 QOTSII aircraft series. Specifically, the latest release brings the software up to Build 3.00.9329 and is applicable to Prepar3D V4.4 and 32-bit simulators. Although the update features a number of general improvements across all platforms, the primary intent is to bring Prepar3D V4 up to the V4.4 standard including external PBR rendering.
