Chicago Simmers...I'm looking for a location in FS Chic

Recommended Posts

Hello All,I would like some help from anyone familiar to the Chicago area.I'm looking for the correct place (lat/lon) in FS2k2 of an old airfield called Checkerboard Airfield (Checkerboard Flying Field / Maywood Air Mail Field). It was built on the west side of First Avenue, south of Roosevelt Road. The new Checkerboard Air Mail Field received Chicago's air mail from Cleveland and Omaha, and Maywood was the main repair and overhaul center for the entire air mail service, which continued to expand to other cities. It's the old airfield that the US Postal Service used till 1927. It's supposed to be placed where the Loyola University Medical Health System is placed today.I included a few pictures from present daylocation.I hope that anyone can help me, FS is just not detailled with roads enough to find out with the means I have at my disposal. It's much appreciated!Rob "Holland&Holland" de Vriesrvries.10@hccnet.nl
