File Description: Googly scenery for HEMM Mersa Matruh - a large Air Base near the north coast of
Egypt. Marsa Matruh, as the town should be spelt, is a seaport 150 miles west of
Alexandria but its main function today is that of a holiday resort for the
residents of Cairo. It does not have an airport of its own, but uses a small
corner of the Air Base for civilian flights. Microsoft Flight Simulator has
made no provision for any traffic at this airport and this scenery seeks to
redress the situation.
Scheduled flights are operated by Egyptair Express using Embraer 170 jets,
but other airlines call here from time to time, such as Air Sinai and Midwest
The scenery does not purport to be ultra-accurate. Based on high quality
satellite imagery from Google Earth, the layout is proportionally correct but the
added airport features, such as buildings, are built from default Microsoft objects
and add-on libraries so will not look exactly like the real thing.
You are not obliged to download and install any additional scenery libraries,
but to enjoy this scenery in its entirety, you may wish to. It will work fine,
with or without.
