The international airport Manchester is located in the northern English metropolitan County of Greater Manchester and offers flights to about 225 destinations. It is an operational base for several airlines such as: Flybe, Monarch Airlines, Jet2.com and others.
All Airport facilities come as a realistic 3D model in this scenery. These include three terminals of the airport, as well as the hangar in which a Concorde from British Airways has been on display since 2003 or even the public “The Airport Pub”.
During development it was of great importance to make use of all new X-Plane Features, e.g.: HDR-lights, Object Instancing and many more. The Airport is modeled with high accuracy and has been provided with a combination of ultra high Definition (UHD) Textures and High Definition (HD) Textures.
