This scenery includes a more accurate terminal that the default and uses the FSX jetways. The terminal includes all gates except for B2. The construction of the new security screening area has rendered this gate all but useless. There is still a jetway attached to it, but I did not include it here. Included in this scenery are two large hangars at the end of runway 8 that were missing and the Wyndham hotel. The default building was terrible. Also added was the cargo building. I did not add anything to the general aviation area or any of the military areas. I may do that in the future. The proper airlines codes have been added to the proper gates according the the City of Albuquerque webpage. I also updated the landclass around Albuquerque.

KABQ_LC.bgl - Updated Albuquerque land class

The landclass was designed to enhance the default MS landclass. It may be different if a 3rd party landclass is used.
The centerline taxi lights were identified using 2006 air photos available on the Bernalillo County Website. The lights do not appear across the entire field, only in selected spots. I tried to match their location as best as I could.

Everyone at I found answers to most of my questions there.

This scenery has been tested, but I cannot be held responsible for any damage (real or imagined) that results from these files.

I'm sorry, I just don't get it. I downloaded, but what do I do with it?

Where can I download the referenced in the information for KABQ scenery? AVSim library doesn't seem to have it.

Thank you.
