RAF Predannack was opened in May 1941 as a satellite for RAF Portraits. Accommodation was dispersed over a wide area, with officers accommodated in the Mullion Cove and Polurian Hotels. The number of personnel reached peak strength of 3,600 by 1944. The first squadron to arrive was 247 Squadron with Hawker Hurricanes, specialising in night defence of the South West's towns and ports. The night fighting element was later augmented by 1457 Flight flying Douglas Havocs with its unsuccessful Turbinlite searchlight tactics. However, the arrival of 600 Squadron with radar equipped Bristol Beaufighters produced better results. GCI (Ground Control Interception) in the area was covered by RAF Treleaver radar station. A more detailed history can be found on Wikipedia.

RAF Tholthorpe opened in the late 1930s as a grass airfield, and operated as a sub-station of RAF Linton-on-Ouse. From August 1940 to December 1940, Tholthorpe was a landing field for Whitley bombers of No. 58 Squadron RAF and No. 51 Squadron RAF based at Linton. From January 1941 to June 1943, Tholthorpe underwent maintenance to upgrade to Class A standards, with three intersecting concrete runways. RAF Tholthorpe was assigned to No. 6 Group RCAF in June 1943. RCAF squadrons stationed here included No. 434 Squadron "Bluenose", 431 Squadron "Iroquois", 420 Squadron "Snowy Owl", and 425 Squadron "Alouette". No. 434 Squadron, flying Halifax bombers, was formed and headquartered at Tholthorpe airfield from June 1943 until the squadron was moved to Croft. In July 1943, 431 Squadron moved to Tholthorpe airfield from Burn. It was later moved to Croft airfield as well. Not only were the operational squadrons quartered here, also their service echelons, - respectively Nos. 9431 and 9434 Service Echelon - which were formed from the ground crew of nos. 431 and 434 Squadron on 3 November 1943 and who moved with their squadrons on to Croft in December 1943.

(Updated;01-May-2017) **Whats New**: - Fixed floating runway issue (The runway appeared to be levitating about 3ft / 1m above the ground). So I added a ground poly that flattens the runway) If you didnt have this issue, I recommend not installing this minor fix.

DG04 is a fictional airport located in Carinthia at the Grossglockner, the highest mountain in Austria with 12,460ft, 80km south of Salzburg. It's at 10,500ft, has 2 main runways, a smaller one, a water runway and several starts and helipads. Due to the thin air at this height, there's a downhill "runway" down to the artificial lake Moserboden for starts with props. (xD) I've also done some deco to small surrounding airports. DG04 is part of a series of meanwhile 46 smaller and bigger airports which will follow asap. A small update for my previous airport DG01 is included too. If you already have installed it, just overwrite the files. Enjoy, greetz, Dagobert
