I'm flying from the Netherlands to Tokyo in my 747-400. Cruising along at 39000 feet at 486 knots---can't get the plane to go any faster than this. Anyways my plane is pitched up at 5 degrees Mad ....why is it doing this? Am I doing something wrong? Also, where are the trim controls? Thanks for any help.

Almost all aircraft in real life are pitched up a couple of degrees. One problem for a bit steeper pitch could be the center of gravity on your aircraft. I suppose you use FSPassanger. There is a small scale just above the aircraft graphics in the loading page showing you where the center of gravity is. I try to keep it on the center by loading the aircraft with cargo properly.

As VegasFlyer said, it's normal and realistic. It's most noticeable at high altitude and at low altitude with low speed(10,000 ft and 250 knots).
