Merry Christmas to everyone reading this!

 

KCXY is just up the river from KMDT, the big international in Harrisburg PA. The Three Mile Island nuclear plant is nearby, just past KMDT and is worth a look. The airport is a pretty complex, small, downtown airport with a huge custom building plunked down within the flatten area. It has two runways, one ILS and is towered and lighted.

 

VIGR is listed as an airbase by FSX though it didn't come from my military airfields list and is, in fact, not in that list. It gets the usual FSX treatment for many military fields - runway, tower, fuel pump. This one also has a VOR/DME on the field but no published approaches.

 

The update is 66Y, Diamondhead, in MS. It's a single, paved N/S strip a bit under 4,000'. There's a small mid-field ramp with a couple of buildings and a fuel pump and a couple of stubs with parking spots - those are right off the runway. It's non-towered but has lights.

Merry Christmas to everyone reading this!

 

The usual three tonight, after taking the holiday off. Two of these are in the US, pretty much on opposite coasts. McChord, of course, is a USAF base and possibly a joint-use base in these days of BRAC (Base Renovation and Closing). Tweed-New Haven is from the sequester list, so was threatened with tower closure earlier in the year.

 

The odd man out is NTTM on Moorea Island in French Polynesia. It's a fairly small airport on an island about 10 miles from a larger one, which has a much larger and better equipped airport. With an elevation of 9 feet, it's probably not a good place to be hanging out when the typhoons come calling.

I didn't post a batch yesterday because I only managed to do one, but caught up today, so this is a double batch covering today's quota as well as yesterdays. The ratio of US to non-US airports in this group is pretty much reversed from the normal, with offerings from Greece, Germany, France and South Africa among the six - the French one is an update and an earlier version already existed.

 

If you have an eye for detail, that's not a typo in the French airport text. The FSX data has the full "Auvergne" in the airport name field but is truncated to "Auvergn" in the City field. No matter, pronounced in French it probably sounds like someone gagging on a snail anyway.

Today is a standard set of three, including one update. If you're looking for a challenge you might want to visit 99V, in Crawford CO. It lies at the lofty elevation of almost 6,500 feet and boasts a paved runway almost a mile long. Where's the challenge in that, you may ask? Well, it's only 28 feet wide. I'll bet that will separate the good from the bad and the ugly. It also has a more conventionally proportioned grass runway that's parallel to the asphalt ribbon, but that one is closed.

 

KDYS is Dyess AFB in Abilene TX. It's a fairly conventional looking place until you get an idea of the scale. The main runway is over 13,500' X 300'. That little tiny parallel strip (also closed) is a fairly respectable 3,500' X 60'. The main ramp, which looks to be pretty much proportional to the runway must be about 1,000' wide and a mile and a half long.

 

Those two seem to represent the opposite ends of the runway spectrum.

I've posted a new update to the add-on waypoints if anyone is interested. There are now 1,757 of them available in a single bgl file at...

I've been hoping to break through 2,500 diagrams by the end of the year. Progress was lagging and a day off yesterday didn't help any. I got religion on it today and, setting aside the updates, I pounded out eight diagrams today to make the 2,500 mark.

 

Included is KFNT, in Flint MI, which is a two-plater. That's the first one of those I've encountered in a while.

 

Happy New Year to everyone.

 

John

Thanks, Brett.

 

They're really easier now than in the beginning because I've refined the process so much (macros, saved standard text, etc.) and have acquired better software tools and look-up sources along the way. An easy one takes about 20 minutes; an average one about twice that. Big internationals with several runways, custom buildings and a lot of taxiways can take several hours. Fortunately, most of the latter are already in the bag and I don't encounter that kind too often any more.

 

The software tools that I get the most use from are ADE, Paint.NET, Notepad++, Inkscape, and of course FSX itself.

 

John
