• Review: Orbx Caernarfon Airport for X-Plane 11

    What Orbx Said

    "Created by True Earth developer Tony Wroblewski, the entire airfield has been modelled in superb detail from extensive real world photography. The airport is as close as possible to the real airport and will be for years to come".

    I don't think there could be anyone to dispute that and I salute Tony Wroblewski on a top quality airport.

    Summary

    Caernarfon Airport for X-Plane 11 is a stunning scenery from the talented Tony Wroblewski and is definitely on my list of top five airports.

    Having had the opportunity to visit the real Caernarfon Airport, I was really pleased with the quality of this scenery. It brought back many memories and I thoroughly enjoyed my time revisiting it in the virtual X-Plane world.

    Taking into consideration the purchase price of $29.95 (at time of writing), this scenery in my opinion is well worth its asking price. If you enjoy small but detailed airports, then I can honestly say Caernarfon Airport by Orbx is definitely one to consider!
