Regarding KMCW, Mason City Municipal

Recommended Posts

On Friday, February 6, 2009, I had the rare and golden opportunity to be in Mason City and Clear Lake, Iowa to visit Mason City Municipal Airport and the Crash Site which saw the deaths of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, The Big Bopper and pilot Roger Peterson. What I had noticed of Mason City Municipal is that there is absolutely no commemoration of the event or even a memorial at the airport; Sure, they have a large plaque which brags up Lindbergh and other aviators, but nothing made history at that airport like that Feb. 3, 1959 crash. Question is: Has anyone ever made up a freeware version of that airport for FS2004, relatively true to form? I tried to seek it out, but nothing. About all I could do is accuracise the runways and taxiways, but having the original terminal and all would be nice. Anyone have any ideas to point me towards? Thanks!
