I've been working on a little scenery project for a new FBO I've made. I spent a few days flying around Virginia, West Virginia, and Ohio, looking for a nice little place with some hills and trees and a lake. Here are a couple of the best shots from the trip:

The Travel Air tied down for the night after landing by a lake in West Virginia somewhere:

Grass runway at Salt Fork Lake. I've also build a parallel, 6,000-ft. asphalt runway farther up the hill (100 ft. higher elevation). You can land pretty much any kind of plane here, and I think the size and facilities of the airport are fairly realistic, if a little generous...

Another shot of the grass strip:

I know most of you guys use FSX, so my FS9 AFCADs and RWY-12 files probably won't help you much. But if anybody wants to check it out, I'll get you the files. I'll also take some better screenies next time I fire up the sim.

Happy landings!

Dave

Looks good Dave,

What about a little dock on the lake for anyone with a float plane?

I played about with AFCADs and Rwy12 on FS9 but never on FSX, if you give me the spec's of the field then I could look see if I can recreate on FSX (but I can't promise).

Have you got the Lat/Long for this field Dave?

Cheers

Not off the top of my head, but I'll get it to you. It's on the north shore of the southwest corner of Salt Fork Lake. Another airport near the lake is "Taildragger" (OA00).

If FS9 AFCADs work in FSX, I'll send you what I've got... and I'll look up that lat/lon for you.
