I'm not doing any ultra mega airports yet. I'm looking for smaller ones.

Athens, Greece was top for a while. But the reference wasn't quite good enough. I might still do LGAV after another smaller one.

& good news for Canadians, I'm liking something up there. This can change later of course.
If you are open to ideas, how about Houston Hobby (KHOU). Any Southwest airline fan would love you for this.

This feels wierd making a suggestion here. :?

KSMF
KPHX (Don't quite know if Phoenix is considered a mega-airport or not).

Ok, back to flying around Buffalo :D
KSMF has already been done (for FS2004, at least) at payware quality for no cost at all.

Yeah, but FSX sceneries would be just splendid, and this would include redoing any previous FS9 sceneries FT has already done.... :D
I realize that and that is why I made the mention it is for FS2004. I'm not sure what sim. he is using but if he is using FS2004, I wanted him to know about that scenery as it is fantastic freeware.

You got that right. lol

George, your gonna get bombarded with requests! lol put the armor and shields. Athens, Greece would be very nice with your skills, hope you get a chance to recreate it. its a shame there inst that much good reference for it I I have Greek friends that talk about Greece all the time. was close to go there once unfortunately that didn't happen.

I feel bad for Canada there inst that much good scenery would be nice having some flights up there. Guam would be awesome. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_B. ... al_Airport part of the u.s small close to japan Hawaii that would nice. military and passenger traffic. Fiji Nadi International Airport is other one that would be very cool small nice island. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nadi_International_Airport sometimes I look around the globe in google earth and pick spots read some history and looka t some pics and fly there in the sim. usually ones there are far lol. not sure how well they would sell can you name other airports that you like?

+1 on Nadi, and you can take a look at MKJS, Montego Bay Jamaica as another tropical destination.

Some info:
Sir Donald Sangster International Airport (IATA: MBJ, ICAO: MKJS) is an international airport in Montego Bay, Jamaica, and is one of the largest and busiest airports in the Caribbean.It is one of the most ultra-modern airports in the Caribbean capable of handling 9 million passengers yearly; that is three times the size of the Jamaican population Sangster is often referred to as the gateway to the Caribbean. It serves as the most popular airport for tourists visiting the north coast of Jamaica. MBJ is currently the busier of Jamaica's two main airports, the other being Norman Manley International Airport located in the capital city of Kingston.

Over the years, the upgrading process was a continuous one, ultimately the facility had grown into the larger of the two international airports in Jamaica, handling approximately 3.7 million passengers per annum in 2007,and have seen and increase in passenger and aircraft movement since the start of 2008.They are currently seeking to increase the number of passengers from Asia, and are working with Brazil to receive non-stop service from there.

As of 2000, plans have been executed to expand the airport to the status of a world class airport. A new concourse was completed in December 2005 to allow large commercial aircraft such as the Airbus A340, Boeing 747-400 and possibly the Airbus A380. Also a planned expansion of the main runway is currently in the preparation phase, which will, when completed, afford the airport a fully functioning 10,000 ft. runway to accommodate large aircraft traffic. MBJ Airports Limited also commissioned a new customs hall, arrivals lobby and transportation center in March 2007. Since then further expansion and renovation projects such as the relocation of the immigrations hall and duty free mall has been launched and it is expected to be completed by October 2008. When complete the facility will be one of the Caribbean's most modern airports, and will have increased the handling capacity to 9 million passengers per annum
