This is based on the outskirts of the tiny Wiltshire village of Colerne, and has long been a major part of the RAF history in the region and beyond. From 1940-55, this air base stood as the location for RAF Fighter Command units to land at.
It was a major player within the Battle of Britain and as such, it served as a major satellite field for the RAF Middle Wallop. Squadrons regularly came to and from this air base on a daily basis, before it eventually served as a location for military training and for Night Fighters to learn their trade.
It was, between the years of 1948-62, the No. 49 Maintenance Unit RAF holder. This makes it a vital part of British aviation history and this also ensures that it has played a critical role in British aviation history.
Indeed, it eventually became a Transport Airfield with Handley Page Hastings aircraft. By 1967 though it was replaced by the Lockheed C-130 Hercules, and the Colerne squadrons started to move into RAF Lyneham. Colerne then became a major engineering base for the Hercules fleet. It also worked on C-130 engineering.
In this take on the airport, then, you get;
Excellent aerial view ground polygons that look excellent and manage to capture the terrain as well as the general layout of the region with relative ease.
Aligned with full photographic scenery via VFR, ensuring that the likeness of the region can be mastered and put in place with relative ease.
Full complement of hangers is now included, with support buildings also included and changed to make sure that it looks as realistic as it possibly can.
Night lighting to help you navigate where you are going and what you intend to do as you fly, helping you avoid any major crashes as you fly!
A new navigation aid via ILS and VOR/DME which helps you become more accurate as you try and fly here with the help of aids.
AI aircraft that fly around the place, although they cannot be controlled. The quality of the aircraft can be scaled for machines that have a higher performance level than others.
Technical sites and other accommodation are included, fitting the overall historical look and design of that particular era.
