Ghost Airports PA - Update 2. This update for Ghost Airports Collection - Pennsylvania adds the missing Conway, PA airport inadvertently left out of the original release (GHOST_AIRPORT_COLLECTION_PENNSYLVANIA.ZIP). By Richard O. Finley.

This update is the result of an error of omission during the original building of the Pennsylvania Ghost Airports Collection. I wrote down a list of airports that qualified as ghost airports then put them into a spreadsheet. During the process of entering the names into the spreadsheet database, I inadvertently skipped Conway airport.
This is very simple. Now that you have unzipped the downloaded file, put the two resulting .BGL files in ~~microsoft flight simulator X\addon scenery\scenery. Since this is a new airport, there will be no old files to overwrite. The new (Conway) airport will have the identifier PN51.
This completes the Ghost Airports Collection – Pennsylvania for all Pennsylvania ghost airports on the March 1940 Cleveland Sectional chart except for one called Johnston located between Bettis and Greensburg. No airport can be found at Johnston's indicated location on either the 1938 aerial photo or the 1958 aerial photo as found on the Penn Pilot web site. I can find no other information on this airport. Johnston airport could have been built after the 1938 aerial photo and decommissioned by the time the 1958 photo was taken.
I intend to continue to build the Pennsylvania collection as I find more information on any qualifying ghost airports.
This update also includes revised Readme file with several revised pictures.
This scenery is released as Freeware.
