Ever land on an ICE runway? Now is your chance!

Recommended Posts

I wanted to get a bit adventurous and see if by chance Microsoft added some new places in FS2004. I found out that there are airports in Antarctica now :-lol! Not only new airports, but a new runway type too - ICE :(! Yes.....an ice runway. While ice runways exist in real life in Alaska and other cold places, I just now had the experience of landing on one in FS2004. That was one of the weirdest experiences in FS because I couldn't stop, and the scenery engine has problems with extreme north or south latitudes. Not only does your plane slide on the ice, the ground texture slides under the runway. Verrrry weird :-lol.If your game and want to try landing your plane on a runway with no traction whatsoever, go to NZIR runway 15. If you want the sun, you have to select Summer (Earth isnt point to the sun down there right now LOL).Have fun!
