Founded in 1876 through the missionary work of the Church of Scotland Blantyre's historical importance is rivaled by no other Malawian city. it has many historic and cultural heritage resources which constitute a vital part of the city and are crucial for its identity, cultural and social wellbeing and attractiveness to business and tourism.

It became a British consular in 1883 and attained municipality status by 1895 making it Malawi's oldest municipality. It is the oldest urban center in East, Central and Southern Africa; it pre-dates Nairobi, Harare and Johannesburg hence has the longest historic and cultural heritage in the region.

Blantyre is named after the town in South Lanarkshire, Scotland, where the explorer David Livingstone was born. Livingstone's missionary endeavors saw the establishment of the St Michael's and All Angels church. The church dates from 1891 and was famously built by a team of local workmen with no knowledge of architecture of building techniques

The FSX one was not convincing enough! I have tried to make it close to realistic as possible using Airport Scenery Creator v1.37 and the objects that are available for use from FSX SP2 - Acceleration. Hope this will make your stop-over more enjoyable!


  1. Drop the Fwcl.bgl and Fwcl_cvx.BGL files into your FSX/Addon scenery/scenery folder, AND FURTHER MORE move the Scenery_Global_Scenery file (Airport_Buildings_AP.bgl) to the "Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Scenery\Global\Scenery" folder. This is because the main terminal building is not standard part of the FSX SP2 Acceleration Object Library - If you do not have it already.
