RAF Friston and Newhaven Harbor. RAF Friston is a WWII base between the towns of Seaford and Eastdean, East Sussex, UK. By Andrew Randall.
RAF Friston and Newhaven Habour for FSX.
This is my interpretation of RAF Friston. A WWII RAF base between the towns of Seaford and Eastdean in the county of East Sussex, England.
A little history about RAf Friston:
During 1940, Gayles Farm and a large portion of Exceat Farm were requisitioned as an R.A.F emergency landing ground. Facilities were later upgraded and operations recommenced during May 1942. the first real action involving Friston was when two squadrons of Hurricanes were temporarily stationed there for the DIEPPE RAID. As Friston was the nearest airfield this side of the Channel, it received a number of crippled aircraft on its two grass runways that fateful day. During Spring 1943, German fighter/bombers were becoming a serious threat to south coast towns. To counter them the new Mk XII Griffon-engines Spitfires first saw active service at Friston.
During the Autumn and Winter of 1943-44, many Allied aircraft such as Lancasters, Flying Fortresses and Liberators, which were damaged or low on fuel, made for Friston. In the words of the station‘s log, the airfield began to look like a Bomber Station". From October 1943, Friston was to have its own resident squadron of Spitfires, and became a fully operational airfield in its own right as from January 1944, having a compliment of 1,400 airmen and women. Many aircraft used the airfield in connection with the D-DAY landings and during the Summer of 1944 Friston‘s aircraft accounted for many dozens of V1 FLYING BOMBS. By November, Friston had seen its heyday and was finally derequisitioned in April 1946. Today, very little evidence survives, the area now forming a quiet backdrop to the Seven Sisters.

Newhaven, East Sussex, England is a cross channel Ferry Port to Dieppe in France. It was also home to the RAF who operated Air Sea rescue and patrol boats out of the port during and after WWII. They maintained a presence there up to the mid 1970's.
Using Airport Design Editor I have made the port with a water runway on which you can place yourself in a water plane or ship.
I have also included some new landclass for the area and although not as accurate as photographic scenery is better than the default FSX scenery for the area.
The scenery uses FSX library objects, so you will (should) have them including the textures.
Unzip to a temporary folder.
Copy or move the contents (the four BGL files) of the 'fstnnhvn' folder to your MSFX/Addon Scenery/scenery folder.
When you start FSX it will rebuild its scenery data base.
Put your 'senery complexity' slider to normal or above.
Look under United Kingdom then find Friston or Newhaven. Newhaven is WATER only!
That's it. Enjoy, or not, as the case may be!
The airports and scenery were built using 'Airport Design Editor' for FSX, a freeware programme from most flight simulator websites.
The landclass was made with 'EZ-Landclass Version 3.0' for FSX by Russel Dirks, another freeware programme.
If you have 'ADE' feel free to modify or add to. All I ask is that you give me some credit if you upload any modification. Thanks.
This scenery is freeware.
