You may be able to save download time by installing the following two files. If you are still missing textures or objects, then you will have to download the individual library files.

ez_1.zip by David Grindele.
rwy12_1.zip by David Grindele.
loneys_ez_scenery.zip by the author.

The following is a list of files you'll need to download for this scenery to work with it's full effect.

Non-Default Aircraft:

Mike Stone's Beechcraft B1900D....sb1900d.zip.
Keni Factor's repaint in Great Lakes livery..rkr19gla.zip.

Also my Cessna 182R RG which is included with this package.

EZ Scenery Libraries:

loneys_ez_scenery.zip.
ramplit3.zip.
ezhangers.zip.
ez-ga_hangers_ss_v2.zip (ga_hangers_ss_v3.zip (upgrade)).
db_parkinglots.zip.

The Libraries only need to be downloaded if you do not already have them installed on your system.

INSTALLATION:

You are reading this readme, so you have already unzipped cape_girardeau_kcgi_fsx.zip. Pleas find the following files:

c182r_rg.zip
cape_girardeau_fsx_scenery.zip
FILE_ID.DIZ
kcgi_fsx_1.jpg
kcgi_fsx_5.jpg
Readme.doc
readme.txt
screenshots.zip

The Aircraft:

Be careful that you install the aircraft in the FSX/SimObjects/Airplanes folder. This is FSX and the folder where the aircraft is located is different than what might be mentioned in the instructions from the author. I recommend you unzip to a temporary folder.

Install the Beechcraft aircraft per the author's instructions. Do the same for the repaint files.

If your FSX setup is like the following, then all you need to do is unzip c182r_rg.zip to the drive where your FSX is located.

:\Programs Files\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator X.

Otherwise, unzip it to a temporary folder and manually move the aircraft folder to the SimObjects/Airplanes folder.

The Scenery:

Again, if your FSX setup is like the following, then all you need to do is unzip cape_girardeau_fsx_scenery.zip to the drive where your FSX is located.

:\Programs Files\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator X.

Otherwise, unzip the file to a temporary folder and manually move the KCGI - Cape Girardeau MO folder to wherever you put your addon scenery.

Go to the Scenery Library then to Add Area. Navigate to where you put the scenery and activate it in FSX in the usual manner.

I hope you enjoy the scenery in FSX.

Airport History

The Cape Girardeau Regional Airport began in 1942. It was then called Harris Field and was used as a training grounds for Air Force pilots. In 1945, the school closed and the airport reverted to the War Assets Administration as surplus property. In 1946-1947, the City of Cape Girardeau acquired the airport and it became known as Cape Girardeau Municipal Airport. The Consolidated School of Aviation moved their operations to Cape Girardeau Municipal Airport at this time. The school had been operating at the site of R.B. Potash nick Construction Company.

There was only one runway at the time the City of Cape purchased the airport. It was runway 02-20, which was half asphalt and half sod. The runway was 4000 feet long (about 13.5 football fields laid end to end) and was aligned northeast by southwest. 1948, the first expansion of the airport began with asphalt being placed on the south half of runway 02-20, the construction of sod runway 12-30, runway lights and center taxiway lights. In 1950, Ozark Airlines became the first scheduled airline to come to Cape and was only certified for Visual Flight Rules (VFR) operations. The Consolidated School of Aviation sold their assets and Cape Central Airways was formed. A terminal building was built where the present fuel farm is located. The terminal consisted of offices for Cape Central Airways and Ozark Airlines, classrooms, a restaurant, and an apartment for the restaurant manager.

In 1956, the terminal building caught fire and the building was destroyed. Cape Central Airways and Ozark Airlines moved their operations to an existing hangar. In the late summer of 1956, the north end of runway 02-20 was destroyed due to flooding and ground saturation.

In 1956-1957, the north end of runway 02-20 was reconstructed as a concrete runway, the first section of the existing terminal, a ramp with a taxiway, a taxiway leading to the approach end of runway 20, and a parallel taxiway from the center taxiway to the approach end of runway 02. In 1960, a Flight Service Station (FSS) was located at the airport and improved taxiway and runway lighting was installed.

In 1963, four wooden hangars were built. Cape Central Airways used one of the four for a maintenance facility, a naval reserve unit occupied one, and the other two were used for storage. In 1966, one of the storage buildings burned down after being struck by lightning. In 1967, the VOR was constructed and VOR approaches were established. In 1968, runway 10-28 was constructed with high intensity lights and taxiways. The terminal building was also expanded and a restaurant included. In 1971, Cape Central Airway maintenance facility was destroyed by lightning and their present building was built. In 1973-74, construction of the air traffic control tower began. Since 1974, Cape Central Airways has changed ownership twice, a ramp and various approach lighting aids have been installed.

We now have one fixed-base operator (FBO), Air Evac Aviation. It took over from Cape Central Airways in 1994. Air Evac provides fueling, major and minor general aviation aircraft maintenance, chartering, aircraft rental, flight instruction, and a cargo operation.

In 1986, there were three airlines flying out of Cape Girardeau Municipal Airport, Northwest Airlines, Brit Airlines and Air Midwest Airlines. In 1991, Air Midwest was bought out by Trans State Airlines and became the present airline known as Trans World Express. Corporate Airlines bought the route in 2000 and continues to fly as TWE. TWE flies the British Aerospace Jetstream Super 31. this plane can carry 19 passengers. It arrives and returns to and from St. Louis twice a day.

ABOUT THE SCENERY:

I designed Cape Girardeau for FS9 back in 2008. The idea of doing the modifications to make it compatible with FSX came by way of Jimmy R. Martin. So, here you are. For your flying pleasure.

Enjoy the scenery!

THANKS TO:

David "Opa" Marshall. For his suggestion to do the scenery in FS9 and his help with the information and the scenery itself.

Jimmy R. Martin for suggesting that I try it in FSX.
