Scenery Waterford Airport (EIWF) and Waterford City. Waterford Airport is situated in the south east corner of Ireland and is a small regional airport. It consists of two runways 03 and 21. Immediately to the south is Waterford Airport Business Park. The buildings are predominantly small industrial warehouse types. By George Keogh.
The scenery consists of two files:
EIWF which was originally created by the IFSD team. Sadly they are no longer operational.
The second file is called Waterford City and EIWF.
Both files should be added to FSX Addon Scenery folder and activated from within FSX.
Note: the original EIWF was designed for FS9 but works fine in FSX also. It can impact on framerates on slower machines. If anyone can suggest how I can remove the FS9 tree objects from around the airport, please let me know.
The second file was created using Instant Scenery and the inbuilt FSX objects, it therefore has little impact on frame rates.
I hope you enjoy flying the scenery.
Waterford Airport is situated in the south east corner of Ireland and is a small regional airport. It consists of two runways 03 and 021. Immediately to the south is waterford airport business park. The buildings are predominantly small industrial warehouse types.
Cars have been added to the front carpark together with some passengers outside the front door.
Typical general aircraft have been added in their correct parking bays together with typical airport vehicles. The airport is proud of its new fire tender, and you will also find the Irish Air Corps hanger.
Be careful when landing on runway 021, dont fly too low, it frightens the flock of sheep.
When you takeoff from runway 021 and fly south over Tramore Bay you will pass over the Backstrand, this is a tidal inlet of shallow water and the scene of a tragic accident in 1999 when a Dauphin helicopter DH264, based at EIWF, crashed into the sand dunes killing all four crew members of the Irish Air Corps.
On the western headland you will find three stone columns which were erected in 1823 when the bay claimed a ship called The Seahorse in heavy storms. The ship ran aground on the eastern side of the bay with the loss of almost 400 souls. The centre column has a 14feet high statue of the ancient mariner who reputedly can be heard to say in stormy seas
"Keep out good ship, keep out from me, For I am the rock of misery".
On the eastern side of the bay you will find two corresponding stone columns.
Turn east at these columns and follow the coast to the entrance to Waterford harbour. There you will find the fishing village of Dunmore East. I have added the lighthouse, piers, fishing boats and some shops. halfway across the harbour entrance you will find a cargo ship awaiting the tide and the harbour pilot. On the opposite headland you will find another lighthouse called "The Hook".
Head north and follow the river Suir until it turns sharply west. Here you will find the fishing village of Cheekpoint and immediately opposite you will see the Oil fired generating station of Great Island. The real chimney stacks are 400 feet high. I have laso added a supertanker discharging its cargo.
Continue to head west and you will find the new Belview Port together with its industrial complex and jetty.
Furher upstream you will find "The Island", if you look closely and fly at about 500' you will see The Castle.
Continue to head west at 500' and you arrive in Waterford City. I have attempted to represent the south bank with a mixture of 3 and 4 storey buildings together with shops. The buildings have been aligned to the roads as provided by UTX Europe which is extremely accurate in depicting their true locations.
Further upstream you will find the recently opened bypass bridge. The new roads are not yet available from UTX Europe. The new bridge is now the longest span in Ireland and consists of a single column cable stay suspension bridge.
The archive waterford_city_and_eiwf.zip has 27 files and directories contained within it.
