LGSM Samos International Airport, Greece.
The island of Samos lies in the Eastern Aegean and is a very popular tourist destination for flights from Berlin, Munich, Gatwick, Oslo, Copenhagen, Rome and many others. It is widely regarded as the most dangerous airport in Greece, mountainous terrain requires a sharp right hand turn onto runway 09 and landings are invariably subject to strong turbulence.
The airport has been designed to sit on the excellent photoreal scenery by Dimitris Ntaskas, which is available here on Avsim and called 'samos_305814.zip'. It also uses many objects from my lgkf_kefallinia.zip scenery also available here at Avsim. The scenery has been designed for and tested with DX9 and FSXA only, if used with the default terrain many objects will be misplaced.
The scenery features a very detailed airport, repositioned according to satellite imagery and is based on real photographs. Full night lighting is included with washed lighting of the apron and carparks. The nearby town of Pythagorio has been modelled and includes some local landmarks. I have included many autogen style buildings based on photographs of Samos and also autogen trees native to the region.
The airport includes many animations, including olive trees, flags, people, windsocks, birds, road traffic and waves. Local Air traffic between the neighbouring islands of Chios, Mykonos, Kos and Rhodes is included, as is a panoramic view from inside the new tower. All the files have been sub-divided and can be switched on or off according to user preference.
Full installation instructions, settings, hints and tips can be found in the readme file. Please enjoy and I hope you like my scenery as much as I enjoyed building it.
