    FS2004 Scenery--Sisimiut BGSS, west Greenland. Sisimiut is around 125 miles south of Aasiaat, and 80 miles west of Kangerlussuaq airport, currently the largest commercial airfield in Greenland. Sisimiut has a population of 5500 and the northern-most year-round ice-free port in Greenland. The airport is across a bridge and along a two mile road, northwest of the town, and the terminal and garage building is identical to Aasiaat. The runway is 2600+ feet of asphalt almost 100 feet wide and lighted at 33 feet ASL, aligned 20/02, with the apron and terminal building at the eastern end. Air Greenland run regular flights though within FS2004 it is impossible to land an AI Dash-7 on a runway less than 3000 feet long, so this has a Dash-8. There was no way to replicate both the parking facing away from the terminal AND the "through" taxiing to complete the circle back to the runway; after parking correctly the AI Air Greenland plane will reverse before heading out to take off. The surrounding area is rock with some scruffy grass and low bushes, and there is no grass around the runway; the airfield has compacted gravel instead. The Dash-8 in the video parks differently; don't ask why. By Roger Wensley.
