ABOUT THE SCENERY:
I became familiar with Greater Kankakee Airport way back in FS version 4. Back then it was nothing but a runway and a weird colored ground texture. The thought occurred to me to design this airport for FS9, but never got around to it. Well, better late than never, so here it is for FSX. I hope you enjoy it.
I wish to thank all of the designers for both aircraft and scenery objects used in this scenery. I put the scenery together, but it's their hard work that made it possible. Please read the Warehouse text and pdf files to see the contributing authors. Thanks a lot guys.
Also, I’d like to thank Bob Lacy, who is helping me to learn how to make photorealistic ground textures. I appreciate him allowing me to ware his patience thin.
Last, but certainly not least I'd like to thank the FS community who download and use my sceneries. Without them...........what's the point? Thank you all very, very much.
