Stephen Posted February 13 Report Share Posted February 13 NEWS! - Scenery Release : KSAN International Airport, KNZY Naval Air Station North Island and Naval Base San Diego by FunnerFlight San Diego was always a tricky scenery scenery to do, do one aspect in KSAN "Lindbergh Field", and in the other areas in San Diego downtown and the huge Naval Base here would feel wanting... several developers have had a go at it, but ultimately any San Diego scenery could never live up the ultimate promise. Scenery developer FunnerFlight or Jeff Mueller of LAX and PHNL fame has however is giving the challenge of San Diego a go in recreating the impossible, in all three aspects of KSAN International Airport, KNZY NAS North Island and Naval Base San Diego that make up the full area. And at a sub-US$20 price, you get value as well. Notable is that the download consists of two files, KSAN (263 Mb) and KNZY (626 Mb), and both are loaded into your X-Plane "Custom Scenery Folder". Also notable is that that the scenery can be heavy on your system requirements, both a minimum 8Gb Graphic Card and 16Gb of RAM are both the requirements for this scenery. San Diego International Airport, formerly known as Lindbergh Field, is an international airport three miles (4.8 km) northwest of Downtown San Diego, California, United States. KSAN is the busiest single-runway airport in the world. The airport's landing approach is well known for its close proximity to the skyscrapers of Downtown San Diego, and can sometimes prove difficult to pilots for the relatively short usable landing area, steep descent angle over the crest of Bankers Hill, and shifting wind currents just before landing. San Diego International operates in controlled airspace served by the Southern California TRACON, which is some of the busiest airspace in the world. KSAN has 2 terminals, with a total of 48 gates. Each terminal has 2 concourses. Coast Guard Air Station San Diego is near the southeast corner of the airport. The installation originally supported seaplane operations, with seaplane ramps into San Diego Bay, as well as land-based aircraft and helicopter operations using the airport's runway. Naval Air Station North Island (NASNI) is located at the north end of Coronado Island in San Diego Bay and is the home port of several aircraft carriers of the United States Navy. The installation also hosts nearly all of the Pacific Fleet's helicopter squadrons, several fixed-wing squadrons, multiple Naval Air Reserve activities and is home to both the Fleet Readiness Center Southwest and the headquarters for Commander, Naval Air Forces. It is part of the largest aerospace-industrial complex in the United States Navy, the 57,000-acre (230 km2) Naval Base Coronado. Naval Base San Diego is the second largest surface ship base of the US Navy. It is the principal homeport of the Pacific Fleet, consisting of over 50 ships.
