Where is the backdrop taken

Recommended Posts

If you look at the backdrop it really looks like a screenshot - and a very nice one. But where in the world is it - you can see a runway through the clouds.Check it out:flightwhere.jpgAnyone who can see where it is?

Lets not do this to ourselves. We have already been horribly disappointed with Microsoft magic screenshots. I'm all for not repeating that fiasco with speculation and wait until Microsoft explicitly says which are ingame screenshots and which ones are not.

I bet MS used a few cloud textures from REX as an overlay on an aerial photo of Heathrow.

That is not Heathrow . The core of Heathrow is between the two main runways. At quick glance it does look like Heathrow tho :(

It's not KSTL either! Note the hangers in the screenshot don't match STL at all...I would have thought KSEA, but it's clearly not there either...The "Great Mystery Airport Hunt" continues... :(

I am going to have to go with KSTL too. The 4 GA hangers along taxiway F are there as well as the UPS cargo facility behind it. You can see the old Boeing plant off taxiway V. You can even see the bend in highway US 68 as it goes under Rwy 11/29 is even in the picture.
