This will represent a new direction for my scenery development efforts. I have made some of my own scenery objects including hangars, signs and a rendition of the Glenn Curtiss Museum in Hammondsport NY. The airport named Taylor field (on 1970's sectional charts) is a small 1800' strip not shown in the stock FSX list of airports. There is no ICAO code or other designator I could find with extensive research. I used my own code of NY3C.
This is a part reality part historic scenery as it will represent the modern day airport, the Glenn Curtiss Museum, and adjacent to the Airport a facsimile ofthe original horse racetrack that was used by Glenn Curtiss to fly his June Bug on July 4th 1908. It is a close As I can determine to the original spot using acchival photos and conversations with the Director of the Curtiss Museum, Traff Doherty. Extensive use of new landclass is also employed to give a better representation of the geographic area. Here are some preview shots.
