Porter's Place by Don Moser will give you a good challange, found here in the library, search for porters_place.zip It was made for FS2000 right after the FSD Porter was introduced, it's 600 feet and surounded by trees. It most likely will work OK in FS2002. K

Alaska is the place to go. This is where there are a lot of short strips. This is the most popular way to get around in Alaska, by plane or boat.... Hardly any roads.

SABA is cool and with IWI scenery installed it is even better. Even has "STOL" painted on the runway.Ken

Alaska sounds fun, but its gonna be one heck of a journey getting there :) . I like flying to places, but not leaving my plane behind. If I wanna go somewhere, I fly there LOL. Thats like a 2000 mile flight, and thats just to Juneau LOL! Its gonna be a lot of itty bitty trips because I know a Stearman cant get much farther than 300 miles at ~80kts without a pit stop.Perhaps I can book a flight on a something a bit more modern, a Fokker 100 instead, and throw my dissassmbled Stearman in the cargo hold LOL.

Are you a Hoosier?So am I.I'll get you some ICAO codes and let you go nuts.Actually, the small strips are easy to get to because MS didn't model the terrain correctly.Shades State Park outside of Waveland, Indiana is surrouned by hundreds of trees. I've seen a stub wing Cherokee go down hard at that one.And just outside of my hometown of Russellville, is a small grass strip located between cornfieds, known locally as Durhams. Another tight one.Shades is 13 miles SW of KCFJ and Durhams is 15 S of KCFJ.KJ dcboard.cgi?az=view_attachment&file=3d866b9308147336.jpg
