(FAA ID: 3U2), a grass airstrip located in central Idaho (ID) three miles (5 km) south of Yellow Pine, a village in Valley County, Idaho, United States. It is managed by the Idaho Division of Aeronautics of the Idaho Transportation Department. A caretaker resides at the field, and as a result, the turf runway is well cared for. Johnson Creek is in the category of backcountry airstrips, and is popular with pilots who enjoy airplane camping. This FSX rendition includes volumetric grass, static aircraft, 1 meter/pixel photoscenery, 10 meter mesh, full autogen annotation, and is color corrected and blended into the surrounding scenery. By Orion Lyau.
