WIKD/WIOD Tanjung Pandan/Buluh Tumbang/H.A.S. Hanandjoeddin, Indonesia
File Description: Googly scenery for WIKD/WIOD Tanjung Pandan/Buluh Tumbang/H.A.S. Hanandjoeddin,
Indonesia, based on Google Earth satellite data. It is a small domestic airport
serving the island of Belitung, located about 17 miles from the main town of the
island - Tandjungpandan. The island produces mainly tin and pepper but there are
some beaches that are generating tourist traffic too.
Flight Simulator 2004 has made no provision for any traffic at this airport and
this scenery seeks to redress the situation. The airport sees daily scheduled
traffic operated by Batavia Air and Sriwijaya Air.
The scenery does not purport to be ultra-accurate. Based on poor 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.
The ICAO code for this airport has recently changed from WIKD to WIOD. The included
files allow you to either retain the old code or optionally change the airport to
use the new one.
