Nels - should you have the time, could you post up some quick pics of a few New England airports?! We've seen Boston in some posts already, perhaps a shot of PVD, BDL, and BTV?
You're going far above the call of duty responding to specific requests - no prob if you can't get it in.
ALSO - I found my FS4 box in the basement of my parent's house today. A working 3.5" disk contained the following...
Hehe... Nels - thanks for ALL the contributions to the hobby through the years!!

For some reason, the entire central part of Massachusetts is an empty
hole on SD-12. This despite the fact that Worcester Muni is a large
airport with regularly scheduled jet service. Even the major roads
through this area such as the Mass Pike and Route 2 are missing. As
a result, this became an area wide scenery design project rather than
the usual single airport project.
This scenery actually includes four airports: Worcester Muni (ORH),
Oxford (MA08), Spencer (MA10), and Sterling (3B3). Worcester is done
in a great deal of detail while the others have fairly minimal detail.
Sterling was not on any of the USGS maps I had so it has the least
amount of detail.
Lots of buildings have been added to give the feeling of a city
environment, since Worcester is the second largest city in New
England. It doesn't have many really tall buildings but the few it
does have are included in the downtown area along with many other
larger buildings throughout the area. Worcester has many colleges
and several campuses are included. I went to school at Worcester
Polytechnic Institute (WPI) and that campus is done in great detail.
You'll see WPI just off to your left when heading east directly off
the end of rwy 11.
Other major scenery details that have been added include Route 90
(Mass Pike), Route 290, Route 195 and Route 9. Far to the north
of the city Route 2 has also been added (since you can easily see
its lights at night) and a portion of Route 495 has been enlarged
to a full 4-lane road so you can also see it at night. Mount
Wachusett, the tallest thing in eastern Massachusetts at 2006 feet
is included north of the city.
For navigation, the rwy 11 ILS on 110.9 has been added, along with
NDB's on 392 and 279 to provide the approaches shown in the FAA
approach plates. ATIS on 126.55 and tower on 120.5 are also
Be sure to fly this scenery during the night. The lighting effects
provided by SEE03 are spectacular! You'll also find road signs
along the major highways and a row of electric towers provided by
SEE library #2.
