Googly scenery for HCMM Mogadishu/Petrella, the capital airport of Somalia.
Astonishingly, in Flight Simulator 2004 this international airport is depicted as little
more than a runway! Whilst in the real world the airport can hardly be
described as busy, it is served by the country's sole airline - Jubba
Airways, with their wonderful Ilyushin IL-18, and many African and Eastern
European operators call by with cargo flights. In fact, the vast proportion of
the aircraft seen here are Russian-built.
These scenery files add aprons, taxiways, buildings and other airport features to Flight Simulator's limited representation and allow "AI" traffic to land, taxi, park and take off in a realistic manner. But do watch out for cars on the runway and taxiways as they
appear to be regularly used as a by-pass to the perils of driving through the city!
The scenery does not purport to be ultra-accurate. Based on high-detail 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. [File re-uploaded at request of AVSIM]
