  • I’m not 100% convinced this is up to the usual standards of Russ. Based purely on screenshots, the mountains surrounding the airport seem quite low res to me, and given they feature quite predominately in this scenery I think it could kill the immersion some what. The airport buildings look top notch though.

    • I’ve been taking a close look as well trying to figure the detail of the mountains – it’s 60cm per pixel so should be fairly standard for airport surroundings. Russ and Turbulent are excellent so I’m sure they did the very best they could with available imagery. Looking forward to testing for myself!

      • Yep, I’m a big fan of Turbulent’s work and going off screenshots can be deceiving. I’ll definitely pick this one up at some stage – it’s just that it’s fallen back slightly on the must have list pecking order. The order now stands 1. UK2000 EGHH (Bournemouth), 2. Flytampa CYUL V2 and 3. KSUN ; )

        • Absolutely, there’s so much good stuff coming out these days that it’s tough to keep up! Not only that, there’s a lot of great products still in the pipeline.
