Barakoma Airstrip Update Scenery.

This is an update for the Barakoma Airstrip.

In memory of the Black Sheep Squadron VMF 214 here's the Barakoma Airstrip in the Isle of Vella Lavella in the Solomon Islands. The airstrip is no longer in use nowadays.

I've added more objects as well as a Taxi strip.

The airstrip is more or less situated where the original Barakoma airstrip is.

Just delete the existing "VEV_ADEX_KW.BGL" file and replace with the 2 files included.

Here's the path where to drop both airfield bgl files :

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Addon Scenery\scenery.

Have fun.

Glad you enjoy it... Had to do some research to find the exact location, went on from old photographs to put the runway in place, and so on... Flown multiple times out of it with a Corsair...

Hey, thanks for building and offering this base on Vella Lavella. I have always been a fan of the Baa Baa Black Sheep series replayed on the History Channel decades ago. I watched every episode as many times as they aired it. Read 3 books on Pappy and the 214, another book on the AVG. Now we have the 214 base on the island, the tents, and the Sheep's pen.

After downloading the base I tried the milk run in a DC3 from Vella to Espirito. No GPS, no VOR or NDB, just a map and compass across 4 hours of nothing but blue ocean. I turned out to miss Espiritos by 63 nmi but got close enough to see it in the distance and turn towards it. The area covered was the size of a quarter on the map I had and maybe I could have gotten closer with a bigger map and could make better measurements. It makes one appreciate the navigational skills they had back then and how much the cost of error was.
