Not really, I was just noticing how there are some airports available for FS2002 in the library, that haven't been done for FS2004.Jeff

For airports, the main thing is that the way facility data is handled is different. You need to use an FS9 AFCAD to provide the facility and AI data. There may be some minor interface issues where the airport objects join the terrain.scott s..

Some FS2002 scenery will screw up your FS9 world coordinates, which will manifest itself as mis-aligned headings and may show at unexpected places around the world. Typically about 20 deg off, but if you have several FS2002 sceneries installed they may combine to create various degrees of error.After you install the FS2002 scenery, start a flight and ensure the runway heading agrees with your compass. Try a couple of other near and far airports too, and make sure compass and runway heading agree.I suggest you make a note, or name the scenery to identify that it is FS2002, so that when you run into such a problem later you can disable your FS2002 sceneries as part of debugging which of them causes the problem. db

I believe the heading problem comes from the FS9 afcad files, which aren't compatible with FS2002. Otherwise, most scenery will work fine in FS2002.
