KEWR updated scenery

Recommended Posts

KEWR - Newark Liberty International Airport

 

This is an update of the stock KEWR airport from P3D that corrects taxiway designations and intersection locations. I used Google Earth to validate the location of taxiway intersections and manually inputted the lat/long locations. I also updated taxiway designators to the current scheme. Also added was signage to designate the WILBUR, AMELIA, LINDY and BALL PARK areas. I was unable to reconcile the current FAA airport diagram with Google Earth as the imagery date is 6/17/2010. As such some taxi ways do not follow the diagram exactly.

 

Taxiway discrepancies:

 

C not included

P2 not included

P3 not included

Q crosses Y and joins with R

Y joins directly to M

Y does not cross 22R-4L and does not join with P

 

New York Airports X by Drzewiecki Designs http://drzewiecki-design.net/prodNYAirports_X.htm has the latest scenery for ZNY airports. However looking at the free demo of KEWR I have seen that taxiway designators are following the old scheme. An easy check, the three taxiways joining at the end of 4L should be AA, BB and CC.

 

I tested this file with FSX and P3DV2. After many hours I think I have everything correct except as noted in the discrepancies. This is version 1.0 so let me know what needs to be updated.
