About This File
FS2004 Port Columbus KCMH 2013 Scenery. Port Columbus International Airport in Columbus, Ohio (OH), USA, is a gem of an airport for aviation buffs. It first opened in 1929 at a site chosen by Charles Lindbergh, as part of an air-rail route from New York to Los Angeles. The original terminal building has been restored and is now used for office space. Two of the original three hangars are still in use (the third hangar is included in the scenery). The six hangar Lane Aviation FBO was added in 1935 and has been in operation these 78 years. In 1959 the modern terminal was first built, with additions and renovations to follow. Netjets opened their facilities in 2001. With the exception of the runways, this version of KCMH was built entirely from scratch. This is the first large airport by this author in which all buildings on the field (except for the control tower) are custom made and partly or fully photo textured. Also makes more use of ground photo textures. Many hours went into the creation of Port Columbus International Airport. Thanks to Wil Morgan of Frame-Rate-Friendly Studio for the AI aircraft parking assignments and general testing. The vintage TWA textures for the DC3's are by Dale De Luca. By Sidney Schwartz.
