MYXY - Duncan Town, Ragged Island Chain, Bahamas - Version 2
File Description: The Ragged Island Chain consists of a string of small islands in the Bahamas. Only one island, Ragged Island, has a settlement on it which is known as Duncan Town. This FSX scenery improves the airstrip at Duncan Town and creates a new private airstrip on Nurse Cay. The airstrip at MYXY (Duncan Town) has been lengthened by 500 feet and widened by 25 feet. Six parking ramps now exist as well as a fuel pump and helipad. Additional taxiways have been added and lights for the runway, taxiways and apron. A small building has been added to serve as a combined terminal, control tower, and customs office. There is also a hangar to protect your plane from tropical storms. These improvements were necessary to accomodate the increased air traffic due to the new high rise tropical hotel, the Ragged Island Resort. There is also a lighthouse on the island and a cruise ship with helipad just off to the east. A large private yacht just to the north also has a helipad. You can watch dolphins swim at both of those locations - the helipads make great viewing spots. About 20 miles north of Ragged Island is Nurse Cay (MYXN). This is where my private airstrip and villa are located. The airstrip has a 2500 ft concrete runway and a parallel taxiway as well as a helipad. The runway, taxiways, and apron are all lit for night operations. The airstrip was built right on a marsh so wandering off the runway or taxiways could result in getting wet. You will find a variety of birds flying around at various locations throughout this scenery. A flight plan is also included for a dusk flight from Ragged Island (MYXY) to Nurse Cay (MYXN). So come on out to Ragged Island, because it's better in the Bahamas! This is version 2 and supercedes my original file - this version corrects the runway numbers at MYXN.
