PMDG Boeing 747-400 Queen of the Skies II, Major Update

To coincide with the release of the 747-8 expansion, PMDG has also published a major update for the Boeing 747-400 Queen of the Skies II.  The latter is of course a prerequisite for the 747-8 expansion pack.  According to Robert Randazzo, “It was necessary to make MASSIVE core changes to the 747-400 in order for the base product to carry the PMDG 747-8 as an expansion package.”

Check out the complete changelog below.
