I'm finally back from a long absence. I did make a little headway while gone, about 22 diagrams in 18 days, all new ones, which is better than I really expected to be able to do. All those were posted in November so have been documented in this forum already, in the November 2013 thread.

 

With some other projects hanging over me, I'm going to revert to an earlier production target, three a day INCLUDING the update of the oldest file on alternate days.

 

While away I had to produce a series of bundled airport diagrams and since I didn't have the library of files with me, had to download some of my own files from the MH File Library to do that. Some of the the recent spike in downloads (but not all) resulted from that.

 

I did three today, including one update, as noted above.

NZMO is a very wide (295') paved strip in New Zealand. There's not much there but the runway and a tower. There are navaids nearby but no published approaches in FS.

KBRO is in Brownsville TX, right near the southern tip. It's more airport than I'd have expected in that location, with three runways, none of them closed, and a good sized ramp, lots of buildings, a tower and all the trimmings including a full ILS to one end of one runway.

KBRO happens to be the 1,000th US airport in the collection.

KIAG is the update, Niagara Falls Intl. It's on a par with Brownsville, above, but probably has more snowplows. It too has one full ILS. If memory serves, this is a mixed use field with a military unit based there along with the civilian operations.

If you're interested, there's an update to the add-on waypoints download, with 1,396 total new real-world waypoints that aren't in stock FSX, available in a single bgl file. They're just the thing if you use real-world charts.

All three of these are what I'd call medium-sized airports of medium complexity. KDPL, Duplin Co, in NC is the smallest with a single runway. The other two have two each. All three have an ILS installation of some sort but mind those Localizer-only approaches. Both KDPL and CYKZ lack a Glide Slope. If you're waiting for the other needle to come alive and guide you down, it's not going to happen.

 

ESGP is an airbase, from the Military Airfields list.

Not to nitpick or anything, but ESGP is no longer an airbase... the airforce left it back in 1999, and the last military presence in the shape of a naval helicopter division packed up and moved elsewhere in 2006 (So I guess technically it was an airbase when the data was gathered for FSX ;) )..

 

Sadly the Swedish air force is but a shadow of what it used to be... Back in the early fifties it was regarded as the fourth largest Air force in the world with around 1000 planes in active duty... Today they have to scrape by with about 285, including Transports, Helicopters and Trainers  :(

 

Oh, and the link for ESGP points to the KDPL diagram...

Thanks, Micke. I'll fix it. Have a cold and am not firing on all cylinders.

 

As with all the diagrams, I use FS data, so if FS says it's an airbase, I say it's an airbase. Appreciate the update.

Two new and an update today. DAOF in Algeria is another of those sandpit airports with just a pair of paved runways and a control tower. In this case there's a navaid nearby, but not on the field. They don't even have a published radio frequency. Strange place.

 

The other new one and the update today have similar ICAO codes, varying by only one letter - just the luck of the draw. The new one is KLWM, Lawrence Mun in Lawrence MA. It's a decent looking field with a good helping of most everything needed. The longest runway is a couple feet short of 5,000'. The ILS is a full one, with glide slope.

 

The update, KLWB, Greenbrier Valley in Lewisburg WV is the famous/infamous national redoubt where the federal government was to have been transported in the event of an attack on Washington DC or a severe natural disaster. The "lodge" there has an extensive underground bunker prepared for that purpose. The airport itself is fairly well equipped, has a full ILS but only one runway, at 7,000' long. Not sure if AF One could have made that runway or not - probably so, considering who the drivers are. Anyway, it's never had to be used for real, thankfully.

I don't think so.  They'd all be killed by luggage falling out of the automatic baggage conveyors.

For some reason I like doing new ones more than updates, even though the diagrams I'm updating were done so long ago that I have little memory of them. The oldest remaining were done in January 2010. I'm continuously pulling up the tail because I think it deserves doing, but I'm not updating now at the same rate I was producing then, so the tail gets progressively longer. At this point, the old ones are mostly credible and are no longer an embarrassment as some of the very early ones were, but there are still features being put into them now that weren't then - magnetic variation, approaches list, custom building footprints, mainly, plus some cosmetic features and better standardization from document to document.

 

E01, as you might guess from the ICAO code, is un-towered. It's a two-runway field in Texas, the longer being only about 4,200'. It has an NDB on the field and a handful of approaches published so is relatively civilized.

 

SAVC is an Argentine Air Base, at least I think it is, since it came from a list that is purported to be entirely made up of military fields in FSX. It must be a mixed use place since it also has the "Intl" moniker on the airport name. You've got to love airport names in the Spanish-speaking parts of the world - so many names and titles. They managed to honor two military men with this one, it seems, one with the name of the field and another by naming the city/town/village/pueblo/mission church/well/wide-spot-in-the-road for him.

 

This one does have a pretty long runway at about 9,200' and a full ILS along with a couple of other approaches, a tower, lights and good navaids. Taxiway designators are another matter. It's my distinct impression that whoever was creating them was interrupted shortly after beginning, probably to tell him that he was using numbers instead of letters, and he just never got back to it. Carpe mañana, I guess.

 

Last on the list today is KVCV, in Victorville CA. It has the unlikely airport name of Southern California Logistics - what a marketing coup. Looking at the diagram, the two runways look pretty skinny but both are actually 150'. The N/S one is very long, at over 15,000', but has a long, long, displaced threshold at the north end - 4,000' long. I don't know if that's the longest one I've ever encountered but it's right up there. I suspect there might be some serious terrain out to the north of the airport. It does have a full ILS to Runway 17, approaching from the north. I guess they just have to suck it up and make do with the 11,000' feet of runway that's beyond the threshold.

It's very strange, I've heard of Marrakech, Morocco, but hadn't a clue there was any such place as Russian Mission, Alaska. I guess from where I am they're probably about equally remote, but one is in my own country and you'd think I'd have a clue.

 

If you're paying close attention to the MH file stats, you may have noticed that the number of uploads incremented by three today, even though the number of new airports added is only two. I posted a zipped "bundle" of airport diagrams for Sector 3 of the Mutley's Hangar ATWC (Around the World Challenge) V today, in the Special Events section of the Airport Diagrams library, accounting for the third upload. All the airports in the bundle are already in the library as singletons.

 

GMMX is a single runway airport of pretty decent size. The runway is over 10,000' long and has a full ILS to one end. There's a good assortment of ramps and buildings, including a custom terminal, all of which is interesting but it still doesn't break into my list of the ten places I'd most like to visit.

 

RSH, Russian Mission Alaska, has one of those ICAO codes that screws up any effort to be organized. Bad enough that Alaska (and Hawaii) airports don't share the "K" prefix of most other US airports, but this one goes off on it's own tangent from the Alaska naming conventions too. I guess I should be happy it's not in the Cyrillic alphabet. RSH seems to be pretty much a bush airport - a gravel strip and a small un-paved ramp with a couple of buildings. There are no navaids within the 20 NM that would get them noted on the airport diagram but there are four published approaches, two RNAV and two GPS - check your IAPs. It's not my intent (nor the FAA's) that anyone should be trying to shoot an approach into anywhere with just an airport diagram so I don't go to great pains to put in everything needed to support instrument approaches.

 

The update today is Perryville Mun, in Perryville MO, K02. See, even that one has the decency to start with a "K". It appears to be a pretty small municipal field, with about 7,000' of runway but almost 2,000' of that is overrun and displaced threshold. There are taxiways but no full-length parallel one. There is a spur taxiway up near the north end with a small pad - not sure the purpose - there are easier ways to accommodate aircraft turning around to back-taxi. The strip is 100' wide, so most GA planes are going to be able to easily turn around on the runway. This one has no tower but is lighted and has a few non-precision approaches published for it.

 

I've got another batch of waypoints processed and added to the download package at Mutley's Hangar. These make the total of new waypoints available 1,550. I wish the airport diagram numbers would increment that quickly. Please visit the MH File Library if you'd like to download them or update an older set. Each upload is cumulative, incorporating all the added waypoints, so only one bgl file is needed to get them all.

This is all a little complicated - it was that kind of day. I've received the four airports I was waiting for to finish off a pending request list but it turns out that for a couple of them, there are different ICAO codes for the same airport between FSX and FS9. In one case, the airports themselves are not identical - very similar but differing in a few details.

 

Of this batch today, only LPSJ, Sao Jorge, Portugal, is not wrapped up in that job.

 

SACO is from the request list but is a simple one-off, job with no complications between versions of the sim. The rest are part of the mess, which I think is pretty much straightened out now, as follows...

 

WIIT and WICT are the same physical real world airport. It think the correct, current ICAO code is WIIT which is from FS9. I don't know where the WICT in FSX came from but they are the same airport. In the two versions of the sim, there are some physical and data differences, e.g. 20' difference in field elevation, a tenth of a minute or so of latitude, etc. The biggest physical difference is that the control tower location is different and the FSX version has a MS fuel pump while the FS9 one does not.

 

I deleted the former WICT file and replaced it with WICT (FSX), which is the same as the older version (also from FSX) except the title. I also added a new file, WIIT (FS9) which is slightly different in details. There are two diagrams for the same airport, one for each sim, but with different ICAO codes.

 

SA11 and SA0B (that's a zero, not a letter "O") are the same physical real world airport, in Argentina. There are no differences between the FSX and FS9 version except the ICAO code. They're identical to the last decimal place in all other respects. I've elected to produce two different files, even though they differ only in file name and ICAO code, just to keep things straight and avoid confusion.

 

I deleted the former SA11 diagram and replaced it with SA11 (FSX), which is identical to the old one except the title. I also added a new SA0B (FS9) file which is identical to the FSX one except filename and labels.

Hopefully this will be a little less complex than yesterday's batch - it was for me, at least. This is a more straight forward group with no complications. KTIP is an update, of course, and should replace the older version in your files, if you're keeping files.

 

NZWP, Whenuapai (Military) in Auckland NZ is the last airport from the request list I'm working on. The other two just came from the normal rotation of things. Interestingly, this airport is clearly listed as Military by FSX but it's absent from the list of approximately 330 military airports that I have. I never thought that was a complete list, but it's a pretty good one and I was surprised to find this field not listed in it.

 

This is a good-sized, fairly complex field with four runways (one grass) but the longest is around 6,600'. It has two full ILSs, to opposite ends of Runway 03/21. There's a VOR/DME on the field. If you're a rotorhead, there are three helipads.

 

KOTH comes from the Sequester list, so is, of course a towered, low-end US airport in the real world. I was surprised to find it non-towered in FSX. It must have gained a control tower since 2006, just in time for the feds to threaten to close it down. It has three runways, all paved, that range from 5,300' to 2,300'. There's one full ILS and a few non-precision approaches, including two CTL.

 

The update, KTIP at Rantoul IL has four runways, but two are closed, along with some of the connecting taxiways. Like KOTH, this one is non-towered in the sim. It kind of has the smell of a former military field with big ramps and big hangars and a number of runways, some closed. I've learned that a lot of former WWII era training fields pretty much fit that description, the feds having turned them over to willing civilians after the war.

This is a pretty unremarkable set of airports, though two of them, DTTX in Tunisia and KFMH, Otis ANG base in Falmouth MA, are military. DTTX came from the military airfields list and the other one was just a random pick from a generic list.

 

Otis is by far the most complex of today's three selections. It has two large runways in an X configuration, both 200' wide. The longer is about 9,500'. There's a full ILS to one end of each runway with plenty of navaids nearby. This one had about five custom buildings whose footprints had to be brought in - that's a separate operation.

 

DTTX is in a place called Sfax, which kind of sounds like an ICAO code too, but it's just the name of the field. It's a single runway, a bit longer than the one at Otis, but has no parallel taxiway, just a series of ramps and aprons set off to one side on taxiway stubs connecting to the runway. There is only a handful of building and the only navaid close enough to be noteworthy is the VOR (sans DME) on the field. There is a tower and a fuel pump and the runway is lighted.

 

06Y is Herman Muni, in Herman MN and is probably around armpit deep in snow about now. It's a single runway, about 3,000' with a single small ramp set off on a single taxiway stub with a single building. I'm guessing it serves mainly - - - singles. It's non-towered but lighted. There are navaids within hailing distance but no published approaches.

KOXC in Waterbury CT is from the sequester list. There are still about forty of the original 148 to be done from this list, so I have a way to go with it. It's been a good source of smallish, controlled fields with good facilities, most of which I'd never heard of before. All will be US, by definition, of course. This one has a single paved runway a little over a mile long, with a parallel taxiway that extends all the way to the thresholds at both ends (but not to the end of the overruns). There's a full ILS to one end and good navaids, including an LOM for the ILS - always nice to have.

 

VIAX is Adampur, in India. It's another of those third world airports that FS has chosen to treat as simply a runway. Maybe that's all there is in the real-world too, but if so one wonders how it came to be paved in the first place. It is paved, at over 9,000' long but has no wide spots in the runway, much less aprons, ramps or taxiways. Don't expect anything in the way of eye candy, not even an MS fuel pump. There are no published radio frequencies and the field is not lighted. Also, no navaids and no published approaches grace the place - It's pilotage, dead reckoning, GPS or a radial from a far-off VOR to find it. This is as bare bones as it gets, except for the fact that it's paved and is a pretty generous sized runway.

 

The updated diagram today is Waddington Air Base in the UK. It's a pretty large and complex field with a lot of taxiways (many marked closed) but no taxiway labels. This one was originally diagrammed in January 2010, so was due for some sprucing up to get all the current goodies included. It has a single runway, almost 9'000 X 200'. There's ILS data shown in the runway table in FS from one direction, but the FS approaches list is blank for this airport - neither ILS nor any non-precision approaches. You can shoot the ILS with your HSI or NAV receiver and VOR indicator but the GPS will not present any help with the approach other than to keep tabs of where you are with respect to the airport. Equally odd, there's no tower frequency listed for the field, only approach and departure. Though there is a physical control tower it may be closed in the real world. If so, there are usually FSS and/or common COM frequencies listed, but not here. In this case, there are only approach and departure frequencies, three approach, one departure. This field has the usual DME on the field that we find at so many military fields in FS, really a TACAN but we civil aviators only get the DME part.

I'm running late tonight so am going to omit most of what I usually write. Just three from the various lists. Bagotville is military.

Unusually, none of these is from the US today.

 

ENHD, the update, is a Norwegian field and not too complex. It's a single runway with a ramp on a couple of taxiway stubs. It is towered and lighted and has an ILS to one end, probably not a luxury with the WX in that part of the world.

 

CYJT is Stephenville, in Newfoundland. If you fly the North Atlantic tracks much you'll know it, along with Bagotville from yesterday's list. The runway, a couple of taxiways and a small part of the ramp area is paved. The rest is gravel, which is pretty common for airport surfaces in that part of the world. This one is non-towered, but has an ILS and a lot of non-precision approaches as well, including a Localizer Backcourse. The runway length is ample at nearly 10,000'.

 

YSWH is Swan Hill in the state of Victoria, in Australia. It boasts one paved and two grass runways and a couple of smallish ramps. One has a MS Fuel pump. There's an NDB on the field but no other navaids nearby - it must be a pretty remote place. There are only advisory frequencies, and three non-precision approaches, including one CTL. There are no Center or Approach or even FSS frequencies, so I don't know who you have to be talking to when you shoot one of the instrument approaches into there. The paved runway is about 4,900'; the two grass ones shorter.

There are three or four tonight, depending upon how you count them. My list coughed up OJ0D, which I struck out on when searching in FSX and in ADE (FSX Mode). On a hunch I went looking and found that it's OJ40 in FSX but OJ0D is the corresponding airport in FS9. They are quite different.

The FSX version has two runways, vice one in FS9, but FS9 has radio frequencies listed, including a control tower frequency (but no physical tower), while the FSX version has none. There was nothing for it but to diagram both separately.

 

The other two, KIFP in Bullhead City, Arizona and KRWF in Redwood Falls, Minnesota, not far from the legendary Frostbite Falls, were more complex airports, but were not nearly so complicated to figure out what was going on in MSFS.

SAOR seems to be a military airfield. Interesting name for Argentina. It's pretty conventional but only seems to have one building on the field, the control tower.

 

KHFD, Hartford-Brainard is in Hartford CT. It has a pair of paved runways crossing at right angles and a closed grass runway parallel to one of the paved ones. Oddly the grass one is labeled NE/SW, more like what we see for a water runway. In the list of approaches is a seldom seen LDA, a Localizer Directional Aid. It's a non-precision approach (no glide slope) where the localizer beam lies at some significant angle to the runway centerline. In this case, the RW approach plate shows the localizer is at 182 degrees and the runway is at 002, a modest twenty degree difference. The approach requires a turn on final after breaking out of the goo to align with the runway.

 

The update today is KBAK, Columbus Mun in Columbus IN. I had a real-world adventure there once. Flying a 172 VFR and passing about 30 miles to the east of the airport the WX and visibility began to get pretty crummy and the WX report started talking about thunderstorms - time to get on the ground. In what had become MVFR at best, after consulting the Sectional, I was able to tune the Runway 23 LOM, flew to and passed over that, aligning myself for a straight in to Runway 23 almost as if I knew what I was doing. About ten minutes later a heavy rain arrived and lasted pretty much the rest of the day.

KWRB is Robins AFB, a pretty good sized one-runway base in Warner Robins GA. It has a full ILS to each end of the massive 12,000' X 300' runway. There are a fair number of buildings, including several custom ones.

 

4B6 is more modest, Ticonderoga Mun, in the New York town of the same name. It's just a single paved runway with a little patch of ramp connected by a short taxiway stub at one end of the 4,000' X 60' strip. It has no fuel pump nor tower but is lighted and has a few published (i.e. known by your GPS) non-precision approaches available.

 

DTTF came from the military airfields list, so I guess is one, though the MS data doesn't reflect that in any way. It's much like a scaled up version of 4B6 but with two small ramps set off on taxiway stubs. The runway is slightly less than 9,500'. There's a VOR on the field and four non-precision approaches listed. It's lighted and towered but all in all is pretty sparse on the eye candy - not quite as bad as the treatment some third-world air bases get in FSX but Ticonderoga Mun looks to be more interesting visually.
