XEGD RAF Davidstow Moor.

XEGD RAF Davidstow Moor.

"RAF Davidstow Moor's three runways were standard for an A Class bomber station. Because of the boggy nature of Davidstow Moor parts of the perimeter track were constructed before work on the runways commenced. Archaeologist C K Croft Andrew was always just ahead of the construction workers in his attempts to record the areas historic past. Runway 24 was the first to be constructed. Levelling was carried out by mechanical excavators and bulldozers. The final levelling was done by blade graders to ensure that no gradient was greater than 1 in 60. One of the drivers of the D8 scraper that was used for this purpose was Mrs Jennings. After levelling the ground a thick layer of hardcore obtained from local quarries was laid down and rolled by steam rollers. Mrs Ruth Hoskin who worked at one of these local quarries was responsible for checking out lorry loads of hardcore. She told her story to the BBC's WW2 People's War website. The hardcore was topped with concrete which was laid in sections and separated by one inch shuttering to allow for expansion of the runway surface. The shuttering was removed and the gap filled with tar before the final surface was laid. The top surface was of tarmac bulked out with wood chip rather than the fine grade stone of many earlier airfields.

The runways were drained to take away rainwater. Drains were provided on all three runways by catch pits located at intervals along the runway. Water from these pits drained away by gravity through miles of salt glazed pipes laid underground. The catch pits were covered with cast iron drain covers.

Whilst the runways were under construction steel oil drums were put out to obstruct the landing surface.

Immediately after completion of the runways they remained lined with mounds of earth and debris which had been removed during construction. Once this had been removed grass turfs were laid. Harold Lane worked for Grassfelt and helped to lay a 50ft wide strip of turf on either side of each runway to be used as an emergency landing area.

At the beginning of each runway, on the left hand side, is a small hard standing for the floodlight [Chance light] tractor and trailer".

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 1 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.
