There are only two airports in this batch but both are two-platers with extensive taxiway systems, custom buildings and all the trimmings. It was a fair sized piece of work to crank these out and I'm happy to have managed to do both.

 

I had a computer casualty yesterday that cost me a lot of lost work on PAED (I know, I know - save often). Anyway, now I'm older and wiser and both these airports are in the can.

ETHS in Fassberg, Germany is really something unusual.  The available landing area of the paved runway is only 1,665 feet long, but there are overruns at each end, on 7,346' and the other 932 feet.  That makes the landing area about 17% of the total strip length.  I don't know the reason - there's no terrain nearby nor any city that would account for the severely displaced threshold.

I had a busy day - between that and the very complicated update of KIAD, Washington-Dulles, I only got these two done today.  

 

 

If you have the earlier version of Dulles, be sure to delete the old file, KIAD.jpg.  It will be replaced by KIAD - A.jpg and KIAD - B.jpg, which will be extracted from KIAD.zip.

This is kind of a mixed bag, with the Italian one being the only one of any particular complexity.  OTBH, in Qatar, is a long runway but there isn't much else there in FSX.  At least the one in Italy has a few buildings and a taxiway network. CPYX in Canada has a tiny ramp, a building or two, fuel and a formidable list of approaches, but no ILS and is neither paved nor towered.

 

 

I hoped to get a fourth one done today but it wasn't in the cards.

Beware KNLP - that looks like an ILS but is Localizer only.

N67 is an odd one. I was originally looking for KLOM, from one of my lists. It's not in either FS9 or FSX, however, after some digging in real-world sources, it appears that N67, in both versions of the sim, is the same airport that is known in the real-world as KLOM. That one had me scratching my head for a while. It appears that the place also has a minor claim to fame as the site where AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association) was founded.

The update, LFLV has an oddity. In the original version of the airport, which probably came from FS9, the field is lighted. In stock FSX it is not. Real-world data indicates that it should be but since the update is from FSX and the field is most assuredly not lighted there, the updated diagram reflects that. This is a good candidate for some add-on scenery, methinks.

LFLV is also one of those Localizer only airports; what looks like and ILS lacks a glide slope. This one is an update so replace the old version with this one to stay up to date.

Cold Lake, Alberta, CYOD appears to be a pretty major Canadian air base, but lacks an ILS. It has three generous runways, including one that's about 12,500' X 200'.

I forgot to mention last night that I've posted a new set of waypoints in the Mutley's Hangar File Library, bringing the total count to 2,625. Download them if you're using them.

KBHB, Bar Harbor (Maine) is an interesting little place. It has a Localizer Back Course listed in the published approaches - always fun if the WX is bad enough.

OEDR is King Abdulaziz Air Base in the land of crude and camels - they never seem to run out of royalty no one else has ever heard of to name air bases after. There did not seem to be a shortage of paving material when they built this place, but may have been one shortly after. That one is a two-plater, due to a lot of named (and numbered, for some of them) taxiways.

YABA put me in mind of Fred Flintstone. It's an Aussie airport and is quite possibly a military base, though it didn't come off that list. It's got a couple of the FSX fingerprints for air bases - a DME (really a TACAN) on the field and unlabeled taxiways. I'm not sure but think that may be the case.

CYSM is Fort Smith, in the NW Territories of Canada. It's most prominent claim to fame is a runway that's within a stone's throw of 6,000' long and a whopping 200' wide. Not sure what they operated out of there but they must have had more then Dash-8s and Twotters in mind when they built that one.

I thought the name of Charters Towers was interesting so did a little digging. It's a former gold mining town in NE Australia. The mining petered out early in the 20th Century but the town and the airport, YCHT, are still going concerns. It's a smallish airport with not much in the way of facilities but at least one of the two runways is paved.

KVPS is Eglin AFB (That's EGLIN, not ELGIN, as many people wrongly pronounce it.) It's a pretty good sized place with a pair of runways in the 10,000' + range and they're both 300' wide. Both have full ILSs to one end. The taxiway network is such that I had to go to a second plate for this one.

LL59 was a bit of a mystery at first. It popped up in one of my many lists and in fact I found a second reference to it in another list. Unfortunately, FSX, ADE, Plan-G had never heard of it. Some searching led me to the Owl's Nest for a clue that it's one and the same with LL0A. It is an Israeli air base, which I believe is used for attack helicopters, mainly (thanks Chris Bell for that info). In FS9 it is in fact designated LL0A and in FSX is LL59. There's not much detail in the FSX rendering of the airport - no buildings, no taxiways, no ramps - just a pair of paved, crossing runways.

EDDC is Dresden, Germany and appears to be the main airport serving the city. I guess I expected it to be a little larger and more full-featured, but you get what you get. I'd describe it as a medium sized commercial airport - one runway at 8,200 X 167', with ILSs (both Cat II) at both ends. It has an ample ramp, a lot of parking and quite a number of non-stock buildings in FSX.

EDXR seems to be a fairly minor German airport in Rendsburg, with an airport name different from the city name. One of the two runways is paved, both are pretty short. There's no tower but it's lighted. I'd have to say this is probably a general aviation field.

Once again I forgot to make note that another batch of waypoints is posted at the Mutley's Hangar file library. They went up yesterday and I should have noted it in last night's update. This time there were only two days since posting the prior batch. The new method of searching out waypoints is much faster than what I was doing before so batches will probably come more frequently. There are currently over 2,650 new waypoints available for FSX.

Busy, busy, busy - five new ones plus an update today.

By way of heads-up, the 20th will be a day off new diagrams as I do the monthly updates of the Country Bundles in the Mutley's Hangar File Library. It's shaping up to be quite a job. Also, I anticipate being out of production for about three weeks in June - more details later.

I managed to get another set of waypoints uploaded to the MH File Library today too. There were 58 in the new batch for 2,737 add-on waypoints available.

Here's another batch of five. Tomorrow is the last day of production before a day off on the 20th to update the country bundles. According to my records, including today's new diagrams, I have 96 new and updated airport diagrams (only 6 are updates) to add to 54 different country bundle zip files. Tomorrow's batch will add to those numbers, so the 20th is shaping up to be a pretty busy day. I wouldn't be too surprised if it takes more than one day since it's pretty much a manual operation.

In tonight's group EDNY (don't they make T-Shirts with that on them?) in Friedrichshafen, Germany has an error in FSX, as far as I can tell. There's a parallel grass strip lying north and west of the main runway 06/24. The strip is incorrectly designated as 06R/24L but seems as if it should be 06L/24R. In accordance with my normal policy I've diagrammed it as it exists in FSX so the designation of the grass runway is incorrect in my diagram too. Public documents aren't much help since all I can find are silent on the grass runway and only list the field as a one-runway airport.

LFSC is a French air base. Is there no end to airbases in Europe? It seems the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Greece in particular are just littered with them. Does Putin know? Does he care?

Four plus one today - KSPA, Spartanburg is an update. If you have it already be sure to replace it with the new one.

Most of the airports that fell out of the list today are in the US, in contrast to what I've done over the past few days. It's all luck of the draw from randomized lists. I don't make any attempt to bias the selections in any way. Half the fun for me is seeing what falls out of the lists each day.

ZUCK in Chongqing, China has some taxiway labeling anomalies, accurately reflecting what's in FSX. Several taxiway designators are used twice in different areas of the field, with no logic for it. FSX is full of similarly puzzling things, some of which probably exist in the real world and some of which crept into Microsoft's work. I try to document it just as it is in FS, right or wrong, because that's what you're going to encounter there too.

Remember tomorrow, the 20th, is the day I'll be updating the Country Bundle files in the Mutley's Hangar File Library with all the diagrams done since the 20th of last month. As a result there won't be any new airport diagrams produced on the 20th nor possibly on the 21st.

After spending a long day on the 20th updating the Country Bundle files at Mutley's Hangar, I managed to do two new airport diagrams yesterday. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to get them sent to the Subscriber's List. They are included in this batch.

As you can see, two of this bunch are two-platers. KRFD in Rockford IL wasn't too bad - just had a lot of taxiways to label. KPIT, Pittsburgh Intl, was more than a handful and I am still pretty surprised that it fit in two plates. The text blocks each seemed to find a natural home on the diagram and fit into its spot, barely, as if it was made for it. Often three-plate diagrams are driven by some chunk of text that just won't fit on the first plate. In this case all of it did but didn't leave much in the way of white space.

The taxiway labeling for KPIT wasn't a walk in the park either. I avoid landscape format and the long axis of KPIT is E-W. It's a big enough field that the taxiways are pretty cramped. I was able to split the image of the airport in a fairly logical way and then zoom each part enough to get the labels in legibly - I hope legibly.

I've gone through KPIT several times while flying commercial, though a long time ago. It may be gone now but I remember one particular area in the airport somewhere where the decor consisted of large squares of polished aluminum hung in a lattice frame. Each of the squares had various holes and gouges randomly melted into them, probably by an acetylene torch wielded by the particular "artist" who was responsible for the eyesore. I thought at the time and still think that is not the kind of display to calm nervous passengers. I wasn't a timid flyer but couldn't help notice that a lot of what passed for art in that display could have easily come from a wreck site.

None of the other airports in this group presented much that is comment-worthy. Just run of the mill airports.

After doing one new diagram today I received a request list for India, mainly small fields. I was about to start on an update to a major international airport when I got the request. I'll suspend updates until the list is finished - probably just one more day.

These three finish off the request list for India. Tomorrow will be back to the usual routine, with an update due. I've looked and it's a major international so there may only be that one tomorrow. It looks like it will take some time to do (re-do, actually) properly.

Someone must have discovered the Country Bundles in the last day. The overall download count spiked by an even 100. I'm pretty sure most of those downloads were from the bundle category.

EBBR Brussels National - Brussels, Belgium (2 plates)(updated)
- http://forum.mutleyshangar.com/index.php/files/file/93-ebbr/

Current Airport Diagram Stats @ Mutley’s Hangar: Uploads 3,164; Airports 2,839; Downloads 4,135; Downloads yesterday 0; Subscribers 20

It's feast or famine with downloads - 100 yesterday and none today. Sometimes that's the way it is. Some days you get the bear, some days the bear gets you.

Today's offering is only a single airport and that an update of one originally done in March of 2010. The update was no minor undertaking. Since that time the base resolution I use has increased by 50% making an actual revision of the earlier version impractical. What a revision actually requires if a complete re-do from scratch.

This one took several hours of work and was difficult. Among other problems, this is another example of poor attention to detail by Microsoft as well as some boneheaded logic, presumably by the airport authorities, in the labeling scheme of the taxiways at EBBR. I've run into this before at other places and hate it. By and large, their long continuous taxiways are labeled in sequential segments, so a parallel taxiway changes IDs at each intersection and must - somehow - be labeled on the diagram between each intersection lest you guys lose your way taxiing there at night.

It's a labeling nightmare on a busy diagram and, as far as I can make out, simply defies any real world logic. I'm tempted to ascribe it to a governmental administrative trait that tends to make all things as complicated as possible in an effort to maximize the number of bobbing heads feeding at the public trough, though that might be unfair. I'm sure it's mere coincidence that the headquarters of both NATO and the EU, both efficient converters of money into hot air, are in Brussels as well.

Anyway, EBBR as it exists in FSX (and FS9 before it) has taxiway segments labeled O1, O2, etc, using the letter O and proceeding upward to O11, but skipping O3, O4 and O5, which instead are labeled 03, 04 and 05, with zeroes. Also an important taxiway entering Runway 07L at the threshold end from the South-West is left un-named. There are a handful of other taxiways sans IDs on the field too but none as important as that one.

The new version of the diagram for EBBR is now two plates, both at the new higher resolution. The old one was from FS9; this one from FSX. It now also includes the footprint of the many custom buildings there, an approach list and magnetic variation (which is near zero in that neighborhood - just two degrees) information.

Be sure to delete your old version manually if you have it. Because of going to two plates, the jpg file names are slightly different; the old jpg file will not be automatically overwritten.

I managed to crank out a pretty good batch today, including a two-plater for KPSP, Palm Springs CA.

LYBT in Serbia and/or Montenegro is an odd one. It's got multiple runways and buildings but is not lighted and has no published radio frequencies. I don't know whether to chalk it up to more Microsoft issues or if the place is somehow devastated by the war in Kosovo.

I got six done today. I'm pushing hard to get as many as possible done as I'm coming up on a family visit that will have me out of the Airport Diagram saddle for the best part of three weeks. I expect my last offerings will be on Saturday evening, though it's not out of the question that I may be able to knock off a few on Sunday.

I want to make special mention of KLDM, in Ludington, Michigan. I was born and raised in Ludington and of course that place is kind of special to me. I deliberately didn't diagram it until it came up in the natural course of things. That happened today when it was next up on one of the randomized lists. I have flown a Skyhawk in and out of there a few times, but those flights were visits home long after I'd moved away.

LPLA, Lajes AB in the Azores, owned by Portugal, is the last airport from the Military Airfields list that I've been working through for some time. That list is now retired and replaced by another, to keep the count of active lists at four. There were something over 300 airfields on that list and over the months I've been using it I have become aware that it's far from exhaustive. There are a lot of other military and mixed-use airfields in FSX that were not reflected on that list. Anyway the list, such as it was, is retired and as a result you may see fewer military fields going forward - not zero, but probably not so many. Using that list guaranteed that at least one in four, not counting updates, would be military.

The new list I've put in place is a short one, only 60 airports, and is from my Australian friend Andrew Godden. It's labeled "Andrew's Oceana List" and is one of two separate lists from him that bear that same label. I'm not even sure if the title came from him or from me, but I am sure the lists came from him. OBY is the first field from that list, which has been randomized. That field would not normally have made the cut to be diagrammed since it's too primitive to meet any of my criteria, except the one that says "Requested by a User". Since the list came from Andrew, anything on it is in.

There are two updates today - OBY was a new diagram yesterday but I noted an incorrectly spelled word and have updated it to correct that. LFQG is a bona-fide update of an old diagram.

LSZE is a tiny airport in Switzerland - built by a watchmaker, no doubt.
