EGNH Blackpool Squiresgate Scenery.

EGNH Blackpool Squiresgate Scenery.

For Flight Simulator X.

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

Flying since 1909.

In 1909 flying began in Blackpool, at the same time that the great French aviator Louis Bleriot was making the first historic crossing of the English Channel. It was also an historic year as Britain's first official major air show was held here at Squires Gate. Pilots of the most primitive flying machines, watched by 200,000 spectators, gave breathtaking displays."

1910 - Horse-racing Course
A year later the Squires Gate land was turned into a horse-racing course when it was leased to a syndicate of businessmen. However, the venture collapsed at the outbreak of World War One, and the site was turned into a military convalescent home, which eventually closed down in 1924. It was not until 1927 that the corporation announced that a municipal aerodrome was to be built near to the town's Stanley Park. At the time you could fly to the Isle of Man from here with a return flight costing only £l.80. You can still see some of the buildings, now part of the Blackpool Zoo. But when rival companies began flying from Squires Gate in 1932 it became clear that one airfield would have to close. A decision was not reached until 1936 when the Ministry of Transport reported that Squires Gate would make a better airport, and a year later flying at Stanley Park ceased.

939 - Royal Air Force
In 1939 the airfield was taken over by the Air Ministry and developed for the Royal Air Force. Three runways were built, along with hangars and ammunitions stores. At the same time a large aircraft factory was constructed and occupied by Vickers. Between 1941 and the end of World War Two, Vickers produced a total of 3,841 Wellington bombers, all of which were test flown from Blackpool Airport's existing runways. Also during the war it provided a base for Spitfire fighters, largely to protect the city of Liverpool from raiding German bombers.

1949 – Civilian Use
Primarily run for civilian use by the Ministry of Aviation the airfield was taken over by Blackpool Corporation in 1962 and it became a Private Limited Company in 1987. A fuller version of the history is available on the website.

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.

Detailed file listing at end of this document.

Service Pack 2 Information:
This scenery has been compiled under FSX Service Pack 2. The following have been noted which were previously functioning correctly: -

1. Apron lighting remains ‘On’ at all times. To allow individual choice Apron Lighting is now contained in its own scenery file to permit removal for those who fly VFR Only.
2. Certain Hangars which have ‘automatic’ door opening in response to a particular Nav2 frequency are now intermittent in operation and do not always respond when the aircraft is tuned the appropriate frequency.

All other scenery displays correctly.

Use of this software is entirely at your own risk. If you do not accept responsibility for any and all damage that may result from installing this software then you must not install it. Installation is an acceptance of these conditions and you become responsible for any and all risks involved.


Expand into a temporary directory them move them into your ?:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Filight Simulator X\Addoncenery\Scenery\ Blackpoolr\scenery,

To remove this scenery just delete the files as listed. DO NOT delete the Scenery directory as this is integral to the working of Flight simulator X,
