Gia Nghia Scenery for FSX Vietnam War project. Photoreal ground texture with custom objects. Gia Nghia was a small airfield used by FAC airplanes during the Vietnam War, mainly Cessna O-1 Bird Dogs.

Gia Nghia is located about 75 miles southwest of Ban Me Thout or about 125 miles west of Cam Ranh Bay at , and the elevation of : 622 m / 2040ft. It is a very pretty area in south of Vietnam, surrounded by hills and forest. Gia Nghia is a big village which buildings were mainly from stucco. A Montagnard village is located near the main location.

Airfield had a very slicy dirt strip of 650m/2132ft of length and a width of : 25m/82ft. Near the strip was an Air America C-47 wreck.

The air section consisted of both Air Force FACS and Army Air Recon. including the 185th Recon Airplane Co. "PTERODACTYLS" flying Cessna O-1 Bird Dog.

This is our first photoreal scenery, in fact, this is not a really photoreal scenery, there is nothing to catch from satellite. So we have to redone all the ground using aerial pictures, mainly a picture from Dave Cooley, LtCol, USAF (Ret.), and softwares. Many objects are custom.
