Rafic Hariri International Airport, Beirut, Lebanon, for the default scenery. By Matthew Brooks / Alpha-India Group.
Rafic Hariri International is a significant airport in the Middle East region - often cited as second only to Dubai - and sees a good range of passenger traffic and cargo traffic as well as a surprising large amount of executive and small GA. MEA (Middle East Airlines) is based here, along with Menajet and Flying Carpet (recently re-branded Med Airways) and it is a good spot to see the narrow body aircraft of major middle eastern airlines such as Qatar Airways and Gulf Air. Middle Eastern low cost carriers are also a significant element of traffic - Air Arabia, Jazeera, newly launched FlyDubai and Bahrain Air all call here frequently.
Rafic Hariri International is also a developing cargo hub and you will see everything from B747's and an AN-124 to several AN-12's. Executive aviation is well provided for and surprisingly numerous - BBJ's, Gulfstreams, Citations etc. - as well as many single prop. Ga aircraft.
Also surprisingly, the airport has 3 runways - considerably more than the traffic needs - which, with the crosswind version, makes it interesting to watch for that reason.
ADE (Airport Design Editor) by Jon Masterson is an invaluable freeware utility for developing Afcads and the latest beta version - 1.40 - is significantly advanced with the addition of the graphical Approach code editor, written by Jim Vile. My thanks to both Jim and Jon for all their help and support on this and all AIG projects.
