FSX Acceleration Scenery--Hawes AOF. Hawes Aerial Operations Facility is a reimagined version of an abandoned World War II auxiliary airstrip formerly known as Hawes AAF Aux #1. It was built in the Mojave Desert, just east of Edwards AFB (then Muroc AAF) during WWII as one of four satellite fields for Victorville AAF. After the war, Hawes was used as a private civilian airfield until its closure in the early 1960's. It is now reborn in FSX as a UAV base by Nevada Systems. Due to its location in the Mojave Desert and the presence of many thermals in FSX, it was also used in production of the Aeroworks ARX-1 civilian glider concept. This scenery uses many custom macros as well as default macros from the Acceleration Expansion Pack, which is required for best performance. Scenery and custom macros by Joshua B. Nyhus and Jason L. Terry.
