A PDF listing of all water runways in FSX. By Lance Tucker.

The original data was graciously supplied by Winfried Orthmann and then verified against the airport facility files in FSX. In all 1,525 APX files were scanned and verified. Yes, 1,525 files! The data was sorted by country, state and ICAO. With little exception, all the water locations are based in the United States of America. In reviewing the data for each location, there are instances where an airport does not have runway start locations and it's usability from within FSX is unknown.

My thanks go to Winfried Orthamnn for supplying the original source and for his decompiler, BGLAnalyzeX. Also, thanks to Jon Masterson for his decompiler, BGL2XML. And to Konstantin Kukushkin and Flight1 for AFX (Airport Facilitator X) which was used to scan file locations when necessary.

The archive waterrwy.zip has 4 files and directories contained within it.
