Some years ago I posted this scenery which I must apologise had many mistakes. I have learnt a lot since then and all the mistakes have now been corrected in this pack. The new scenery still has the upgraded Jauncho Yrausquin airport (SABA) which can accomodate heavies (no more surf on the runway) and my fictitious airport Shamrock Ridge (COLL) on the same island above SABA with a sheer 880ft cliff facing you on landing and a take-off between two cliff faces. Lots of new scenery has been added... beaches, waterfalls, helipads and seaplane docks with starts and a cruise liner anchored just off a new small sheltered harbour below Shamrock Ridge's runway 4. Special thanks go to my FSX friend Miles Franklin in Caracas, Venezuela for encouraging me to do the update,also for helping me find all the mistakes and for all his ideas for additional scenery inspiring me to do the fix. Created by Geoff Peel using ScruffyDuck Software Airport Design Editor FSX Edition. Hope you enjoy !

RAF Blakehill Farm (ICAO X1BK) was an RAF airfield situated in Wiltshire, England. The station was originally allocated to the United States Army Air Forces Ninth Air Force but not used. It opened in 1944 and was home for transport aircraft of No. 46 Group Transport Command. In 1948 the airfield was a satellite of RAF South Cerney and used by training aircraft before the airfield closed in 1952 and was returned to agricultural use. After WWII, GCHQ set up an "experimental radio station", a top secret research facility, on the site of the RAF's wartime airfield at Blakehill Farm. It consisted of huge communications masts arranged in mysterious strategic patterns in the middle of the old airfield. The site was still active in some capacity until the mid 1990s and traces of the former antenna bases can still be seen on satellite photographs. The site is now a Wiltshire Wildlife Trust nature reserve.
