RAF Molesworth WWII airfield, UK. By Scotty Berge.
Thank you for downloading my Third attempt at a WWII airfield. RAF Molesworth RAAF/RAF use At the start of World War II the Air Ministry selected the area as the site for what would become RAF Molesworth. The base was built in 1940 and 1941. The first unit, Royal Australian Air Force 460 Squadron was formed at the base on November 15, 1941 with Vickers Wellington IVs. 460 Squadron departed the field on January 4, 1942. RAF Bomber Command 159 squadron moved in shortly afterwards, however this unit did not remain long, moving to the Middle East on January 12. USAAF use Molesworth was one of the early Eighth Air Force stations assigned to the United States Army Air Force (USAAF). In February 1942, General Ira Eaker and four US staff members inspected Molesworth for possible American use, and during 1942 the facility was improved to Class A airfield standard, with all of its runways extended to American specifications for heavy 4-engined bombers. The main runway was lengthened to 2,000 yards and the number of hardstands increased to fifty. It was given USAAF designation as Station 107.
From 16 September 1943 – 18 June 1945, Molesworth served as headquarters for the 41st Combat Bombardment Wing of the 1st Bomb Division.

Move these 2 files into your addon scenery scenery folder. The path will look like this:

This scenery was created by me using the great program Airport Desing Editor (ADE) and with help from Ian P.
I used the scenery from just flights VFR Scenery volume 1 and 2 to get the right positioning of the field.
