File Description:
These are actually two sceneries offered in one pack. I started building the small airport of Mesolonghi in Western Greece. When nearing completion, I thought that FS was really missing the big suspension Bridge that connects mainland Greece with Peloponese that was finished in 2004, being the biggest in the world of the fully suspended type. The bridge project turned out bigger than the airport as I ended up doing the typical, Greek-style double ended ferries that served the straights for decades before the bridge and still offer a cheaper and, to some, more relaxing alternative.

Mesolonghi airport is situated 5 kilometers east of the historic city of Mesolonghi and is close to the technical school of fisheries. There is no ICAO code (ZZZZ) so I had to give it the fictional LGME in the sim. A purely day field, it houses the local Aeroclub and ultralight school. due to its small size and hospitable atmoshpere, it is a popular GA pilots destination, receiving also often international arrivals. The runway is asphalt and 800m (2635') in length. No PAPI or VASI are provided. There is no tower service and unicom frequency of 119.7MHz is used by the traffic. Closest controlled airport is Araxos (LGRX), a civil and military field, quite common in Greece, 12.5 nautical miles S-SE. The nearby city of Mesolonghi is famous for its heroic resistance and fall in 1826 during the Greek war of indepence. It is also famous for its fishery production, due to the natural lagoon, formed by the shallow waters.

Features of the Mesolonghi airport scenery include:
- Photoreal area with seasonal variations and watermask.
- Custom hangars and containerised buidings.
- AI default trike performing TnGs (in P3D it will work only if you copy over the FSX trike).
- The technical shool of fisheries on the north side.
- Customized shorelines, to fit with ORBX Global Vector.
- Optional shoreline fix for default scenery.

The Rio-Antirio bridge is located 14.5 nautical miles to the east of the airport. It connects the towns of Rio on the south side and Antirio on the north side. More data on the bridge can be found on Wikipedia.

Features of the Rio-Antirio bridge scenery include:
- Custom bridge model, bump mapped textures with hard platform surface and vehicle traffic.
- Night lighting textures and custom roadlights.
- Photoreal scenery for north and south shores, including hand placed autogen and night textures.
- Custom castle models on north and south sides, with bump mapped textures and night lighting.
- Custom model of the toll post on the north side.
- Custom AI ferry boats with constant shuttle service between Rio and Antirion piers.
- Customized shorelines, to fit with ORBX Global Vector.
- Optional shoreline fix for default scenery.
- Optional HDR optimized photoreal textures.
