For full details click on, Read More.Release is slated for this Friday, July 18, 2003 at 1200h GMT. Version 2 builds on the first version and adds several updates to the model. The most significant update is the addition of “Cruise Mode”, which features animated reclining seats, animated stowable PTVs and tray tables, and animated footrests. Also, the Virtual Cabin has been extended with the addition of First and Economy Classes. “Maintenance Mode” has also been expanded, with the addition of opening doors. Minor additions in the way of detail have also been made to the model. The bug in the flight dynamics, causing the MTOW to be exceeded, has also been corrected. Version 2 also features the 777-300ER and 777- 200LR, making the MelJet rendition of the Boeing 777 family complete.

Version 2, however, will not have a virtual cockpit. Plans for the virtual cockpit have been shelved for Version 3, as work on the panel and guages will go well into 2004. Other plans for Version 3 include revamped flight dynamics.
