I've been asked a question regarding the SP ( short fuselage
long-range ) 747 variant.

I don't believe any simulators were ever built for this type
which leads to the question: "How was training done?"

I suspect that the systems were similar enough to the -100
model that some training could be done on -100 sims. The
question of flight training would however be a different
story.
