Thread: KKCK Fairfax Airport Kansas City, Kansas

  1. #1

    Default KKCK Fairfax Airport Kansas City, Kansas

    There is an airport that shows up in flight sim across the River from Kansas City Downtown (Wheeler). It does not show up on the flight simulator map, besides this one of the runways is mislabeled. I tried to find it in addon scenery but it isn't there. Is there anywhere else that I can look in order to remove this scenery?

    It is probably from a scenery of Kansas City Airports for 1958.

    You can still see the airport on satellite images of Kansas City - I think that is a GM assembly plant in the middle of the old airport area.

    Thanks for the reply. I've looked through the scenery file in addon secenery and I am unable to find the scenery file for it. Is there someplace else that I could look for it?

    Use the program AFCAD to search for KKCK. It will search all your active scenery folders. The original scenery included a file AF2_KKCK.bgl - which displays the runways, parking ramps, etc. Opening that file with AFCAD will display the full path to the file if you double click on a blank area of the airport.

    That airport was closed in 1985 when FS2004 was never made scenery airport.

    If you are seeing that airport - it is likely you have this package installed:


    Name: kansascity1958.zip Size: 1,482,685 Date: 02-15-2010 Downloads: 121
    FS2004 Scenery--Kansas City Airport Circa 1958. Kansas City Municipal (KMKC) and Kansas City Fairfax (KKCK) around the late 50's (KS). By Paul Young with Tom Gibson.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the reply. There is no AFCAD for this airport, I guess that is why it doesn't show up on the map or GPS.

    I downloaded those files from Flightsim to see if I could use the file names to find them in my computer but no joy. Wierd huh? I know that those file have to be somewhere in order for the runways, taxiways, control tower, one hangar, and a manufacuring plant to show up.
