Oh my god! This scenery is absolutely awesome. Quick note: the scenery does have to be activated manually in the scenery library in order for it to work.

Looks like the real airport with a sloped runway in the correct spot. The hill is in the right place. Cars move on the roadways. MUCH better than the default Microsoft FSX scenery. Followed instructions and it works well.
