NAS Whiting field is the busiest Naval Air Station in the Navy. Approximately 40% of all Naval Aviators will recieve their primary Flight Training at Whiting Field. Whiting Field North caters to the fixed wing contingent and Whiting Field South serves rotary wing aviators in training. The base actually serves the Navy, Air Force, Coast Guards and Marines and has Water Towers representing the services served. Pilots fly the T34C Turbo Mentor, T-6A Texan II(future), and for rotary wing pilots, the TH-57 Sea Ranger, which is the military version of the FSX default Bell 206 Jet Ranger. Taxiway Z connects the two airports ,but since the airports are at different elevations, the taxiways were connected with a platform ramp which can be traveled with most aircraft, but cannot be used with AI. There are some acceleration objects installed. This version adds ILS on KNDZ RWY 32 along with the 6 strobe MALSR. It adds Radial data to the default NSE VORTAC that was DME only (112.3), and adds various support buildings and fuel trucks. There is a new Control tower under construction at KNDZ. The tower has been added as well as the airport beacon on the "Fly Navy" watertower. Outlying Fields 8A (KN8A) and Spencer NOLF (NRQ) have been added to this scenery as well. Created by Jim Dhaenens

This scenery is merely a representation of RAF Spitalgate(formally RAF Grantham) and is only intended to add another flying base for the many simmers out there who would like to fly to a different location once in a while. The H & J Blocks are in the correct place as is the officers mess(I think) the rest is just placed to add flavour of an RAF Unit. The station opened in 1915 as Royal Flying Corps Station Grantham, becoming RAF Station Grantham on 1 April 1918 - a name it bore until 1942 when it was renamed as RAF Station Spitalgate. Throughout the First World War the station was a flying training facility and headquarters of No. 21 Group RFC Flying Training Command. The station was an Officer Cadet Training Unit (OCTU) in the 1950s. Much later it became the Women's Royal Air Force (WRAF) Depot, responsible for the recruitment and training of all non-commissioned females in the RAF, until this moved to RAF Hereford and later again to RAF Swinderby. It was also the home of the Central Gliding School which moved to RAF Syerston in March 1975. In 1975 the RAF vacated the site and the following year it became a British Army base known as Prince William of Gloucester Barracks

RAF Shepherds Grove is a former Royal Air Force station located 9.9 miles (15.9 km) north-east of Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, England. The Station was originally built for the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) Eighth Air Force during the Second World War. However the facility was not used by the USAAF and was opened by No. 3 Group RAF on 3 April 1944. The name came from a small copse nearby and the airfield is close to Walsham le Willows in Suffolk. It was occupied by No. 196 Squadron RAF in January 1945 as a base for Operation Varsity, supporting the Rhine crossing. Various American units occupied the station after WW2 but ended their use of the unit in December 1958. On 22 July 1956, No. 82 Squadron RAF was activated at Shepherds Grove as a Thor missile unit. Thor launching sites were built on the main airfield and became operational in 1959. The base was closed in 1966.

RAF West Raynham was situated 2 miles west of the village from where it got its name and was built as a part of the RAF expansion scheme. The Station opened in May 1937 and was a bomber command unit throughout the Second World War. The Station closed in 1994. I was Stationed at RAF West Raynham in the late eighties and that is the period that I have tried to re-create here. I have given the Station the ICAO code of X3WR in line with other scenery developers who use Bones as a reference

RAF Stenigot was a Second World War radar station situated at Stenigot, near Donington on Bain, Lincolnshire. It was part of the Chain Home radar network, intended to provide long range early warning for raids from Luftflotte V and the northern elements of Luftflotte II along the approaches to Sheffield and Nottingham and the central midlands. After the Second World War, the site was retained as part of the Chain Home network. In 1959 it was upgraded to a communications relay site as part of the ACE High program, which involved adding four tropospheric scatter dishes. The site was decommissioned in the late 1980s and was mostly demolished by 1996. The radar tower is a Grade II listed structure and is now used by the RAF Aerial Erector School for selection tests for possible recruits. There is a Memorial at the top to a former RAF Aerial Erector. Souce: Wikipedia
