I'm back, but not able to get into full production, possibly for another week. Should be able to do some but probably not my normal three per day.

 

This might be a good opportunity to explain the airport city and country label that is below the ICAO code and airport name in the top right corner of the diagrams. Tonight's airport is a good example and you might wonder why I don't include "Scotland" instead of, or in addition to, "UK" in that line.

 

The short answer is, Microsoft did not label the airport that way. The country field contains "UK" in FSX and the "State / Province" field, which lies between "City" and "Country" fields is blank. There's no reference to Scotland to be found in FSX.

 

If there's any text in the "State / Province" field, I do include it in the label - if it's blank, I don't editorialize because I want the diagram to be an accurate look-up reference for Flight Simulator. If I put in "Scotland" and someone used it for a search term, they'd strike out. In FSX, there's nothing in the country list between "Saudi Arabia" and "Senegal", even though we know better.

Not much time for chatter tonight but did manage one new and one update. The new one, in British Columbia, is from a request list. The update was originally diagrammed in November, 2009.

I managed a full set today but am going to go light on the commentary. All these are new. LFLL comes from a European request list and CYJM is from a British Columbia request list. The last one is from one of the normal lists.

 

0N4 lies on the 5-mile ring around KDOV and has a 28' wide paved runway if you're looking for some experience.

Had quite a spike in downloads in the last 24 hours.

 

Still working two request lists (BC and Europe). The national capitals list only lacks one to be finished and should be able to get that one in the next day or two.

I had to take yesterday off airport diagrams but managed to bang out a double batch today, so we're even.

This is a red-letter day for airport lists. Included in the above are the last of the long-running national capitals list (NLWW), the last of the British Columbia request list (CBW2) and the last of the European request list (LGSK).

 

Replacing the national capitals list will be the list of US airports that were threatened with closure of their control towers under the so-called sequestration budget cuts recently, but not actually closed. These are all small to medium-sized towered airports. There are, I believe, 148 airports on the list, of which approximately half have already been diagrammed. This will become one of the four standard lists I use when there are no active request lists. This will bias the output toward US airports for a while, though not exclusively. The other three lists are a mix.

 

As always, requests are welcome, either single airports or lists of reasonable size. The most common source of request lists is events of one sort or another (rallies, fly-ins, multi-player sessions) and occasionally a VA's routes.

Today felt like an airport diagram kind of day - I was on a roll and just rolled with it. I have a total of seven, one an update. Some of them were pretty easy, contributing to the higher than normal production.

 

Two of these, KESN and KLWS are from the new sequestered airports list. The rest are from the other routine lists.

I got a new request list today - no prizes for guessing the geographical area. It has ten Oregon airports, most pretty small ones. One was already done and I diagrammed five airports from the list today. They're easy and go pretty fast. That leaves four to do, one of which is a pretty good sized airport with a lot of detail. The other three are like the five today - small and simple. With any luck I'll be able to knock out the rest of the list tomorrow.

 

The two non-Oregon airports today both went to multiple plates. Winnipeg Intl in particular is a pretty complex place and required three plates. There are so many NDBs surrounding it, each associated with a particular runway (though not LOMs or LMMs) that I couldn't get all the text data on the main view. That required a third plate, after using the second one for taxiway labeling.

 

KBAF, Barnes Mun, in MA, also needed two plates. That one came from the sequester list.

These five represent the last of the Oregon request list and a routine upgrade, as if you couldn't have figured that out for yourself. The last new one, KLMT at Klamath Falls is a pretty decent airport and was worthy of a second plate for the taxiway labeling.

 

Tomorrow I'll be back to the routine lists, unless another request list pops up.

Here's a standard batch of three, all new.

 

EGTF, Fairoaks, in the UK, is a request.

 

KBMI, in Bloomington/Normal IL, was, if memory serves, one of the very few airports included in the Chicago area in the very early Sublogic Flight Simulator for the Commodore 64. I think there were about four geographic areas included, each with a half dozen or so airports, one of which had a single working ILS. Rivers and major bodies of water were blue, everything else was bright green except the airports. I think there may have been some pyramidal, wire-frame hills here and there too.

 

This one is a two-plater.

 

S04 is just a grass strip but has three buildings and a couple of published radio frequencies, so made the cut when it popped up on a list today.

 

Someone asked today what percent of FSX airports I've diagrammed. A quick and dirty calc returns about 6.5%, but that includes a pretty high proportion of the majors - not all by any means but well over 6.5% of those.

Today is an update day, so Mobile Downtown it is - it was the oldest one in the collection. That was right on the cusp of needing to go to two plates, but I held the line and kept it to one. All the taxiway labels and closed taxiways make it kind of cluttered but I guess it's OK as is.

 

Not much to say about the others - ETNG is from the military airfields list. All the request lists are exhausted for the moment.

They're all new ones today and all US. That's just the luck of the draw this time. One (KPDT) came from the sequester list - all of those are US - but the other two came from universal lists and could just as easily have been airports from elsewhere.

 

I'm going to be out of the loop for a few days again so will not be producing any more airport diagrams until at least Saturday, 8/24.

Current Airport Diagram Stats @ Mutley’s Hangar: Uploads 2,173; downloads 2,486; subscribers 15

I'm safely back from another vacation, a day earlier than planned and hard at it. Since the last batch had no update included, this one does, MBPV on Providenciales Island. It's technically in the UK, but really lies in the sunny islands SE of the Bahamas.

I have some personal RW experience at KMTC, Selfridge ANGB, in Mount Clemens, Michigan. This is NOT a mixed use facility - it is the home field of the Michigan Air National Guard and is a full-fledged military base with all the attendant security.

One Saturday while she was in high school I had to drive my daughter there for an all-day Civil Air Patrol meeting she was required to attend. Since it was a long way from home I had to amuse myself and wait around all day for her to be released. The base happened to be at a high level of security that day, which we noticed in the morning while checking in to get on base.

To kill time I decided to find a place to watch airplanes, since there were some F-16s and A-10s there. I drove around and finally found a little road away from the buildings, still on the base, with a good view of the runway. I parked there to watch the goings-on. Within about ten minutes a pickup truck arrived with a very suspicious pair of armed APs who wanted to know just who I was and what I thought I was doing there.

I explained as best I could and produced ID but had nothing in the way of passes or any other credentials that authorized me to be on the base. They got busy on the radio and after about a half hour, told me to drive to the building where my daughter was in the meeting, go inside and remain there until it was time for both of us to leave.

--------
Both the new diagrams today, KMTC and KDTN, Shreveport Downtown, went to an extra plate for taxiway labeling so those are zip files.

These three new ones are all pretty smallish airports. For novelty, have a look at the magnetic variation at CYGT. Better have the GPS turned on if you go up there.

 

I MAY begin to do three new airports every day and continue to do one update ever other day, so that will be batches of three and four on alternate days. I find it galls me not to have three new ones on the days I do an alternate, so will try to pick up the pace. If I can't maintain it I can always drop back - it's not like I'm actually working for anyone but me.

Carrying on with the new initiative to do 3 + 1 instead of 2 + 1 on update days, I did manage to do that today. All of these airports are pretty minimal except KTYR. That one came off the sequester airport list and turns out to be a pretty complex place. I needed to go to the second plate to label the taxiways.

 

MPBO in Panama is the only non-US airport today. It's on an island near the coast. I thought maybe Bocas meant "island" but instead found that it means harbor or river mouth.

There's another South American airport in today's batch. This is an Argentine military airfield in Buenos Aires. Like most military fields in FS, it's a little sparse on eye candy.

 

KBDR in Bridgeport CT is from the sequester list and as most of them have been so far, it's pretty complex. I think that's going to be the norm for those from this list. This one needed a second plate for taxiway labels.

 

I didn't know there was a Rio WI, and it even has an airport - not much of one but it had a handful of buildings and a tiny parking apron, so it qualifies.

It's an update day, so 3 + 1 today. The name of today's updated airport, EGNR, Hawarden, always makes me think of Harry Potter's alma mater.

 

All of these airports today are fairly complex and three of the four had custom buildings, so I worked harder than normal to get them out - at least none are major internationals. SBSV and EGNR are two plate diagrams.

Unlike yesterday's selections, all three of these turned out to be pretty simple airports, requiring not too much effort from me. None required multiple plates and only one of them had a custom building and that was only one structure. Some days peanuts, some days shells.

 

L00, in Rosamond CA, comes very close to making my list of unfortunate ICAO codes. If the zeroes were letter Os, it would. I'm sure my English friends will agree.

 

LIBV is a military airfield in Italy. Like most military fields in FS it's pretty sparse, just runways and a fuel pump, not even taxiways at this one. After dealing with so many airports I think I've gotten a feel for them and this one would have screamed military to me even without the "Mil" in the airport name or the fact it came from my military airfields list.

 

LIBV does, however, have the dubious distinction of being the 400th airport in the Europe category, which does not include the UK; those, accounting for another 148 airports, have a category of their own.

This being an update day, MDLR in the Dominican Republic got the treatment. The update process is currently picking away at the airports I first diagrammed in November of 2009.

 

The new ones today are all interesting in one respect or another. The first, KYKM, Yakima Air Terminal in Washington state, has a couple of oddities in the list of approaches. The list is...

 

  • VORDME R27
  • ILS R27
  • BLOC B R00
  • VOR A R00

 

The first two are garden variety but the second pair are Circle-to-Land approaches, one a Localizer Back Course. You don't see two CTLs for the same airport every day and BLOCs are not all that common either. I don't think that BLOCs are normally CTL, since you're lined up with a runway by definition during the approach, but not sure of that.

 

I can't resist commenting on the irony of CFL2. In FSX the airport name contains "Conoco". Looking the airport up on line I also find other more modern versions named with "Petrocan" and "Spectra Energy". The place appears to have something to do with oil. None the less, there's no MS fuel pump there. How can that be?

 

KSCK in Stockton CA is from the sequester list. It's a nice sized airport which even has three fuel pumps, to more than make up for the missing one in CFL2, above. Stockton is a world leader of sorts, being one of the first large municipalities to declare bankruptcy recently. Not sure how that affects the airport but in good ol' FSX it's doing just fine, thank you, and by the way, the tower is still in operation.

 

I also note some odd spelling in the Microsoft airport listings - there are two in today's airfields and I think it's a convention within the FSX airport data lists. We have "Mcallister", not the more conventional "McAllister" and "Mcneill" instead of the expected "McNeill". Go figure...
