About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.


'747-200 Ready for Pushback' - Screens

by Judy on Nov. 24, 2004 @ 8:20 a.m. PST

The 747-200 is the classic version of the 'Jumbo' and the one that every pilot wants to fly. Vmax has designed Ready for Pushback as the benchmark simulation of this great aircraft.

Just Flight have teamed up with Vmax and Profisoft to bring this epic simulation to UK flight simmers in a special boxed edition with accompanying jumbo-sized printed documentation!

The 747-200 is the classic version of the most well known airliner in the world. Now Vmax systems has reproduced the 747-200 in an accurate expansion for Flight Simulator 2004.

The attention to detail is second-to-none, and Ready for Pushback benefits from the inclusion of fuel, hydraulic, electrical and other functional panels as well as FFRATS (Full Flight Regime Auto Throttle System) and a breathtaking Gmax model of the aircraft's exterior in both passenger and cargo versions.

The package comes with 54 different aircraft liveries; a plethora of working switches and gauges plus failure modelling that includes engine flame-outs, engine fires and electrical failures. You can even fuel your aircraft with the wing fuelling panel!

This special double-depth boxed edition comes with full printed documentation in the form of a complete 300-page manual with a detailed tutorial and clear explanations of all systems and procedures.

Are you ready for all this – there are over 400 working switches and gauges!
