Undocumented out of scenery airport

Recommended Posts

I flew down to Masset, BC in the Queen Charlotte islands. Looks like they have broken ground on the Masset airport and even installed fuel pumps and an NDB. Perhaps upcoming scenery of the west coast is in the works? If you fly across the Bering Strait to Russia, its looks like the Sahara, doesn't seem like it would take much to add trees at least. They've taken some time to put some basic scenery into a least the adjoining sections of BC

No coffee shop though...

Looks like a perfectly good grass-strip to me.

Would be really nice if Canada was offered in Flight someday. This airport is modelled quite nicely in FSX as one of those rare water/asphalt runways, complete with sunken windsock and building. Sometimes happens whith UTX installed as it has more accurate coastlines..or perhaps due to the melting glaciers?

There are others at Telegraph Creek, Iskut Lake and one near where Whitehorse should been. This is Telegraph Creek and Dease Lake

I flew to Prince Rupert BC last night. The airport is grass with a fuel tank and some lights. The town is very well populated with buildings.

I checked the Russian coast along the Bering straight. The resolution there is very poor. I wonder if the next expansion is going to be the PNW.

That looks cool! I want to land the icon on that water, and then go down the slope!

@JPC55 Where is that?

 

It's south of PAKT airport, with the map zoomed all the way out you have a grid line to the right of PAKT. Come down that line to about 1/2 inch above the horizontal and 1/2 inch to the right side of the vertical line. I'm playing around with it a little, have fun.

I have a love hate relationship with Terrace. I hated being there, and I loved leaving! My bike broke down there on a Friday, and I was stuck there until Tuesday by the time the part arrived from Vancouver. Pretty much all there was to do was sit in the pub all day, especially with no wheels! I should have wandered up to the airport and hung out there.

Had you wandered up to the airport, you might have found somebody willing to do a $100 Bike Part Run to Vancouver with you!

Isn't that the waterline that separates finished Alaska from unfinished Alaska?

I'd probably sniffle and cough all the way and annoy the pilot.

Well this is interesting... Just for jollies, I flew along the northeast coast into Canada to see how far the high-res scenery went. Right before the scenery turned bland, I just happened to look down and saw this.

I don't believe there is any unfinished Alaska, Canada yes.

I am at this time, when I am on Flight, following this line around the Alaska Pack and at first I thought it was all that the Flight team developed for the Alaska Pack, however I'm now beginning to think that it's a blanket covering basic scenery already in place for future Canada addons and by basic I mean that auto gen and complex scenery will be added when they deem worthy of developing it, and the basic scenery looks just like FSX to me. IMHO

As I progress in my perimeter flight I am taking screen shots of things that stand out to me and I can say so far I don,t have a lot of them. I am at present, about half way around the Pack. I am using the P-51 because it is the fastest plane that I/we have. I am at present about half way across the north end perimeter and do not expect I will have much in the way of screen shots untill I reach the Bering Strait.

 

This is when I started to think blanket.
