RAF Cottesmore (ICAO EGXJ) is a former Royal Air Force station in Rutland, England, situated between Cottesmore and Market Overton. The Stationed opened on 11 March 1938 and was used mainly for training, and the first squadrons were equipped with Vickers Wellesley aircraft, but soon converted to Fairey Battles. Later RAF Bomber Command took over the airfield, again as a training station, flying Handley Page Hampdens. These units remained in residence until a few days before the outbreak of war in 1939 when they were sent to RAF Cranfield to serve as a pool providing replacements for combat losses. Their place at Cottesmore was taken by Nos. 106 and 185 Squadrons, moving in from RAF Thornaby with Hampdens. However, with the outbreak of war, the aircraft and crews were sent to locations in the north and west, as enemy air attacks were expected over the southern half of England. As these never materialised, the Hampdens returned in the spring of 1940 and No. 185 Squadron became the Hampden operational training unit, No. 14 Operational Training Unit RAF. RAF Cottesmore's Hampdens' first trespass into hostile airspace was a leaflet dropping operation over northern France. In October 1940, 106 Squadron moved to RAF Finningley while No. 14 OTU remained training crews for Bomber Command, its Hampdens and HP.53 Herefords being replaced by Vickers Wellingtons in 1942. Training continued for three years and three months until August 1943 when No. 14 OTU moved to RAF Market Harborough. In early December 2009, it was announced the station would close due to funding cut-backs, in part to help pay for additional helicopters for British operations in Afghanistan. In 2010, No. 4 Squadron RAF disbanded, with No. 20 Squadron RAF re-badging as No 4 (Reserve) Squadron. The station became a satellite to RAF Wittering on 31 March 2011 with a civic parade and flypast to mark the disbandment of No 1 Sqn RAF, 800 NAS, 801 NAS and JFH. In July 2011 Defence Secretary Liam Fox announced plans for it to be the airfield for one of five of the Army's Multi-Role Brigades. In April 2012 it was renamed Kendrew Barracks after Major General Sir Douglas Kendrew. Source: Wikipedia

Upfield farm (X2FU) was (?) a small farm strip between Newport & Chepstow in the UK. The owner got into trouble after adding a paved runway adjacent to an existing grass runway without getting the required planning permissions to do so. Retrospective permission was not granted, and the paved runway had to be removed. To install simply unzip the zip to the FSX addOnScenery folder. The zip also contains a fix for a fault in the default terrain between Uskmouth and the SSC.

Mangalore Airport is located in central Victoria, Australia and provides pilot training services and facilities for student pilots. This airport has been modeled from photographs freely available off the internet. This package has two versions. One is for anyone who has the orbxAU/Blue package installed and the other is for generic fsx landscape. The two options are provided as the blending of the airport into the surrounding scenery is different for each. I have modeled the main terminal building and a couple of buildings close to it and the control tower so as to look something like the actual ones but I have used generic textures in addition to some of my own. All the other buildings are generic ones and chosen for their size and architectural resemblance (albeit rather vague because of the generic library lack of choice) to the actual ones. I have included two hangars of my own but these are not exactly like those at the actual airport but are similar in size and shape. This means that the overall layout reflects the actual airport but the finer detail does not. In any event its an improvement on what came with the default version.
