There are lots of different answers to this question. Do you mean any airport at all, airports for the 737NG, airports for the 744? Do you mean amazing in terms of the scenery surrounding it, unusual or difficult approaches? My favourite airport is probably NZQN, provided you have one of the freeware or payware meshes for the area that is. The approach is mighty challenging!

Queenstown? Oh come on man I lived in Wellington (NZWN) for a year, seeing the 737 slip and crab on those horrible crosswinds were great!Amazing airports in terms of what, scenery or the airport itself?In terms of the airport itself, Hong Kong Chep Lap Kok (VHHH) the building of that one was amazingFor scenery? There are lots, anything by FlyTampa, ImagineSim or the good high quality payware companies.

Leopoldo,If you want to take a jet into an intersting airport, try a B737-700, lightly loaded (for arrival) from somwhere via the SS NDB to OPGT, Gilgit in the Pakistan mountains. The notes for arrival from the Aegean Seagul VA Bold and Beautiful Project say:********************************************************************LANDING ADVISORIES FOR RWY25 AT OPGTFOR FS2004, 737 AND kasmir_fs9.zip USERS ONLY!!!********************************************************************Captain, this will be a tough one! But we have prepared some landing instructions for you to help you land safely at OPGT.You must follow these instructions strictly! There are no published procedures for OPGT. If you follow these rules STRICTLY please IGNORE ANY GPWS ALERTS!Let's start:1) FL330 for this flight2) Enter the route in your FMC or GPS. We need DME from GT NDB! Acturally, the only waypoints needed are SS NDB and GT NDB. You may want to follow the airway J130 to reach SS NDB.3) After SS, direct GT NDB.4) When 75nm inbound GT, start descent for FL200.5) Tune your ADF to 324.0 (GT NDB)6) When 40nm inbound GT, start descent for FL160, while preparing to decelerate to 160kts over GT.************************************************************************************************************************AND NOW STARTS THE DANGEROUS PART************************************************************************************************************************7) When 15nm inbound GT, turn left heading 037 and start descending to 7000ft. This will be a steep descent and you want to keep those 160kts so lower your landing gear to avoid acceleration.8) Constantly monitor your ADF needle. Intercept radial 250 inbound GT, so turn right heading 070.9) When 4nm inbound GT, turn right hdg090 and fly by these huge cliffs.10) When 1.5nm inbound GT, turn further right hdg115, to the big valley while descending to 7000ft.11) Start your timer and after 1min make a TIGHT 35o LEFT TURN DIRECT GT NDB. This will be a DAUNTING TURN BETWEEN PEAKS AND CLIFFS!12) The airport should be now at your 11 o'clock.13) Descend to MDA (5200ft).14) Prepare for an offset approach track since there is a HUGE HILL right at the end of rwy25.15) Configure your plane to touchdown on the NUMBERS. This is a small (~5500ft) runway!.16) Auto spoilers armed, auto-brakes to MAX, FULL FLAPS, fingers crossed and SAFE LANDING CAPTAIN!!!!LOL, you'll need it. I left a lot of scrap metal there.NeilYPAD
