RAF Topcliffe Scenery for P3D
A late expansion scheme airfield, RAF Topcliffe (ICAO: EGXY) opened in September 1940 as a bomber station in RAF Bomber Command. Some 21.5 miles south-west of Thirsk and 11.5 miles from Topcliffe village, the station had a bombing circle in some 200 acres of seeded grass, fronted on the west side by three of the later Type C hangars with two more behind and the permanent camp to the rear.

The base was home to No. 77 Squadron and No. 102 Squadrons, both flying the Armstrong Whitworth Whitley heavy bomber. On 1 January 1943, the station was transferred to No. 6 Group RCAF and became a training station.
During the next two decades, there was a considerable amount of new building and improvements to the flying field, the airfield being taken over by Coastal Command in 1952 with Lancaster's and Neptune's. No.1 Air Navigation School was located at RAF Topcliffe between March 1957 & December 1961. The Air Electronics school came in January 1962 and from 1967 became the Air Electronics & Engineers School. Ten years later the base as an RAF station closed when it was transferred to the Army.
This scenery of RAF Topcliffe by Team SDB represents the base during the mid-1950s with Neptunes of 19 Group's 36, 203, and 210 Squadrons. Also present are visiting de Havilland Vampires whilst their home base was undergoing improvements.

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.
