X4PS Samlesbury Airfield Scenery.

X4PS Samlesbury Airfield Scenery.

Dedicated to all those men and women, of all the armed services, past and present who serve to protect us.

Samlesbury Airfield.

“In 1938 English Electric became a 'shadow' aircraft manufacturer, able to build other companies designs for the war effort. Preston was chosen as the aircraft factory and an airfield at Samlesbury was built. 80 aircraft a month were built at the peak during 1944.

In 1944 English Electric decided that after the war it would break into the aircraft market and formed a design team located in Corporation Street, Preston. In 1946 a contract was received for 4 prototype Canberra high altitude jet bombers then known as the A1.

In 1940 a new airfield at Warton was built which would be used by the US Air Force. In 1947 English Electric took over the site for use as an Experimental Flying facility as the runway at Samlesbury was not long enough.

During the war production was spread across other sites in Preston to protect it in case of attack. It appears the Germans wern't aware of what the factory built.

A successful run of 5000 Hampden, Halifax and Vampires led to the design of the Canberra and Lightning.

In 1960 English Electric merged with Vickers and Bristol Aircraft to form the British Aircraft Corporation. In 1965 its main contract the TSR2 was cancelled.

The three factories; Preston, Warton and Samlesbury continued with work on Canberra and Lightning and Strikemaster with rear fuselage manufacture of Concorde and Phantom aircraft".

These files are specifically for FSX using Horizon GenX Photo scenery and included mesh. They have not been tested using default mesh or any other mesh. They may look OK and work OK with other scenery packages and mesh, if they do fine, if not, sorry, I am not going to customise further.

Required Scenery:

Horizon GenX Photo scenery volumes 3 together with GenX Mesh.

These files may also work with VFR Real Scenery; however, this has not been tested and may give odd results. It will not function with FS9.

Recommended complementary scenery, (download separately): -
In order to use the included "scenery" .bgl(s) you should have installed: -
Scenery/Object Files from the Runway12 library and the UK add-on scenery library.
