Googly scenery for VGCB Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh, a small domestic airport
serving the fishing town of the same name in the Bay of Bengal, to the
south of Chittagong. It boasts extensive sandy beaches which has allowed
tourism development. The unusual name comes from Captain Hiram Cox of the
British East India Company who was appointed Superintendent of the outpost
in the late 1700s. The airport, which was originally a Pakistan Air Force
base, sees domestic flights (mostly to/from Dhaka) operated by Hawker
Siddeley 748s, de Havilland Dash 8s and Fokker Fellowship aircraft of Biman
Bangladesh Airlines, GMG Airlines, United Airways and Zoom Airlines.
Flight Simulator 2004 has made no provision for traffic with only a runway
provided and this scenery seeks to redress the situation.
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.
