BollingAFB/Anacostia NAS Scenery.

Anacostia & Bolling were closed to fixed wing traffic in 1962,and both Navy & Air Force fixed wing flying operations for the Washington DC area moved to the much larger & less crowded Andrews AFB a few miles to the East. This is another Sharkey attempt to revive closed or unknown airports in the US.

A couple years back, I ran into a website called "Abandoned and Little Known Airfields" by Paul Freeman. There I saw airports that I had not seen in many years. In some cases, I had only seen their ruins. It inspired me to create these airports in FS. This site has become my inspiration and reference "jumping off" point in a lot of my designs.

INSTALLATION:
All but one file go into /Addon Scenery/Scenery.
AFX_KBOF_ALT.bgl goes into /Scenery/World/Scenery.

That file is a Flatten file that will be needed to - Oh, I don't know... flatten.

ISSUES:
You may find the ground peeking through the runway - very rarely and for a short time. At this point, I am baffled, befuddled, confused, and even a little flummoxed. It's really a minor thing though.

AS ALWAYS:
I hope you enjoy this as much as I. I welcome CONSTRUCTIVE criticism and help. I do this as a hobby and, as such, charge nothing. If satisfied, drop me a line. If dissatisfied, let me know and feel free to delete it or dive-bomb on it.
