Flying the new 747-8

It hasn't flown yet, but they've spent a lot of time with the simulator version.

It's a new version of the 747.  It's larger than usual and expected to be used as a freighter.

The article describes what it's like for a general aviation pilot to fly the simulator and it describes the procedures they will follow when test flights begin.

It made me decide to spring for the $65 to add the newly available Airbus 380 to my X-plane simulator.  I'm looking forward to the 50 knot crosswind landings in Iceland.
