EGLB Brooklands 1938. A new FSX version of Brooklands, which was one of the author's Vintage London Airports for FS2002/2004. Grass strip inside the banked motor race circuit; some unique buildings and bridges, the banked curves, a vintage steam train, real water features, lots of trees, and flying rooks, make for an exciting stringbag venue. By John Mckeon.
Brooklands Aerodrome, the birthplace of British Aviation, was set up inside the Brooklands Motor Racing Circuit. The airfield and surrounding racetrack are recreated, with some of the original buildings, the Vickers factory, and the banked racetrack, which makes an interesting hazard for aircraft taking off and landing. The racetrack banking is not 'hard' and cannot be driven on, although the underlying track is taxiway. The water features on the airfield are 'real water', including the green sewage farm area just North of the Flying club. Anyone missing the runway and landing in the substances was dubbed 'hawk'; a term still used today to denote an ace fighter pilot. The racetrack 'finishing straight' is effectively a taxiway, and could be landed on by a skilled pilot; the footbridge across the track is a solid building, but could be flown under with crash detection OFF. The only NAVAIDS here are the white chalk circle at the runway centre, and a wireless transmitter at the tower. No landing lights and definitely NO ILS! In this scenery, the tower transmitter has two separate frequencies, 500 kHz as NDB and 129.175 as COMMS. Wisley Aerodrome (X2WY) is 4 nm South and effectively a Brooklands satellite strip. There is a separate scenery file for Wisley (X2WY_FSX.zip by John McKeon) as X2WY is not a default airfield.
