News! - Scenery Released : PACV-Merle K Smith-Cordova, Alaska by DC Scenery

A new scenery developer for X-Plane is DC Scenery. This development house have already released a few sceneries already for the MSFS platform, but this sweet little scenery is set in Cordova (CDV), Alaska. But not to be confused with Cordova Municipal Airport (CKU) on the banks of Eyak Lake.


Cordova is a city in Alaska, United States. It lies near the mouth of the Copper River, at the head of Orca Inlet on the east side of Prince William Sound. Merle K. (Mudhole) Smith Airport is a state-owned public-use airport located 11 nautical miles (13 mi, 20 km) southeast of the central business district of Cordova, a city in the Valdez-Cordova Census Area of the U.S. state of Alaska which has no road access to the outside world.
The airport is named after Merle K. Smith, also known as "Mudhole", a pilot who in 1939 became president of Cordova Airlines, which used the airport as a hub between 1934 and 1968.
Alaska Airlines also operates Boeing 737 jets to the airport, and the aircraft is the largest airplane flying into Cordova.
Scenery features:
  • Features a highly accurate recreation of Merle K. (Mudhole) Smith Airport
  • Highly detailed models and textures of airport terminal, hangars, buildings and other objects
  • High Detailed ground textures
  • PBR on all objects
  • Custom lights
  • Accurate taxiway, runway and apron
  • High level of airport detail
  • Compatible with Orthophotos

🤔 This is a great little scenery, well done, nicely detailed and comes with a high value price. You do however feel the MSFS undertones, and I would have liked as an bonus extra scenery, the smaller but highly picturesque Cordova Municipal Airport (CKU) also included in the package, as it is situated just down the road, and both would compliment each other at only a slightly higher price.
