Cam Ranh is currently a fast-growing beauty spot and tourist area on the Vietnamese coast. In May 2004, Cam Ranh airport (VVCR) opened to commercial traffic, initially only serving domestic traffic but international flights will commence in 2005. The airport was once a massive US Air Force base, but was later used as a base for Russion spy plane activities.
This scenery adds this "missing" airport to Flight Simulator, but much is based around satellite views of the airport when the US were spying on the Russian base and other historical information and it may not accurately reflect the airport as it is today. Furthermore, my capabilities at scenery design are limited and restricted to scenery objects available through the Rwy12 scenery creation programme.
You do NOT need to download and install the full 45 MB Rwy 12 Object Placer programme, which is for the designers and not the end user.
Some of the scenery objects will appear without any extra downloads, but to get the greatest benefit from this scenery, you may optionally download following files, which should be installed according to the instructions within this download and not as described in their own download archive:
Level 2 objects
rwy12-lvl2.zip (Israel Roth and Seev Kahn/John Hinson),
Level 3 objects
jw_rwy12.zip (Shehryar Ansari),
tl_rwy12.zip (Todd Lucas) ,
ford_transit_collection.zip (S Legg),
hgrrwy12.zip (ESDG), and
ga-hangers_lib_for_rwy12.zip (S Legg)
Also included with this scenery are two EditVoicepack files which may be imported to that programme so that the controllers will be heard referring to "Cam Ranh".
