KERI 2012 Runway Extension. Scenery for Erie, Pennsylvania (PA), Erie International Airport / Tom Ridge Field (KERI). This is an update to the previously issued 2012 runway 6-24 extension project simulation. This simulation depicts the expected appearance of the runway extension at Erie International Airport when it is complete. By Richard O. Finley.
Erie International Airport began as Griswold Field in the early 1920s. It has grown steadily since then.
Erie has been well positioned for innovation. It is large enough to give new equipment a fair test but small enough not to cause a major problem if it does not work. Erie got one the first ILS installations in the 1940s. In the early 1970s it was one of the first ASR-7 radar installation sites. In the 1980s It was the first site in the nation to get The ARTS-IIA automation system.
While this is not really an innovation, Erie in now in the process of adding approximately 1850' (ADE9X measures new runway to 8350') to runway 6-24.
It appears that the parallel taxiway for the new extension is misalligned. Well, it is and that is the way it was designed! Use caution, men & equipment working between rwy 6-24 and the parallel taxiway in the area of the new extension. Feel free, Mrs Robinson, to stroll around the grounds until you feel at home. There is an couple of Easter eggs to be found.
The stock incarnation of KERI leaves much to be desired in FSX. A lot of detail has been added or corrected using a Google Earth and Erie International Airport's own drawing as an overlay. There are no photo-real buildings used here. This simulation uses all stock buildings and features available in ADE9X so a little imagination is required.
This scenery is for FSX only. Put the two .bgl files from the downloaded Zip file into the folder~~microsoft flight simulator X\addon scenery\scenery. If you already have the construction phase version installed, it will ask you if you want to ovwerwrite the existing files. If you want to preserve the old version, you will need to store the two .bgl files with KERI in their filename somewhere that FSX cannot find them.
Hope you enjoy it.
