|This scenery has been built using AFCAD for the
airport layout, FSDS3 for making the buildings &
EZ-Scenery to place the buildings inside FS.
It's not amazing detail scenery, with all the bells

terminal building & tower and a shorter 7500ft runway.
An approximation of the original 1962 terminal building
and the old style tower.
