RAF Ludford Magna Scenery for P3D
At 430 feet above sea level, RAF Ludford Magna was the highest airfield in Lincolnshire which gave it a very exposed position. The main runway was aligned north to south which caused problems for aircraft of the day, especially Lancasters which could be a handful on take-off and landing in a crosswind. Read more...

The airfield was opened under the command of No 1 Group on 15th June 1943 with Lancasters of No 101 Squadron arriving from their former Yorkshire base of Holme-on-Spalding Moor and staying for the duration.
All flying ceased in 1945 and the airfield was placed on Care and Maintenance. In 1958 part of the airfield was reactivated for use with Thor ICBMs (Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile).
No 104 Squadron was formed in July 1959 to operate three ICBMs under the RAF Hemswell Missile Wing. Thor ICBM facilities stayed at the airfield until May 1963 when the missiles were withdrawn and the squadron disbanded.
The airfield is accurately laid out but some license was used for the infrastructure. It is representative of the period.
The scenery consists of:
- A full complement of hangars and support buildings
- The technical site and accommodation representative of the period
- Operational night lighting
- Dynamic night street lighting in Prepar3D v4
- Avro Lancaster by kind permission of Dave Garwood.
- Modified for Prepar3D v4 AI and scenery object use by Team SDB

About Team SDB
Team SDB, a joint effort from developers based in the UK and USA but primarily consisting of Mike Dews in the UK and Frank Safranek in the USA have been developing flight simulator scenery add-ons for over a decade. Originally beginning with work published by Alphasim (Phil Perrott) also known for Virtavia, they now release independantly.
Team SDB generally focus on UK/US airfields, airbases and military precenses and bring them to life as scenery add-ons in the simulators. They have released many titles that have been well received by the community compatible with a range of simulators such FS2004, FSX and Prepar3D. They also have other projects releases such as aircraft carrier add-ons compatible with the latest sims.
Team SDB also hope to remaster and release their scenery add-on portfolio for the new Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS) 2020 release.
