    Sorry but No it isn't. See this announcement on the official forums:

    https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t...-update/353738

    "World Update 3: United Kingdom & Ireland

    We are hard at work on World Update 3 and it is looking great! This massive update contains new aerials, new DEM, over 70 POIs, 5 airports, two landing challenges, and will also introduce 5 brand-new photogrammetry cities for your enjoyment. Unfortunately, these new cities are causing a slight delay… it’s a new process and data source for us and the tools have to be updated for these cities to integrate seamlessly into the sim. The Bing Maps team is working hard to make this happen and the data provider, Bluesky, is helping as well. We believe that the remaining issues will be resolved within a few days so we are targeting the release one week later than originally planned. We apologize about the delay, but are convinced that it will be worth the wait … and that a full 3D London is a critical element of this release. Thank you for your patience."

    I read somewhere that there will be 5 new photo cities in the update. Guessing London, Birmingham and Manchester may be 3 of them, but really hoping for Bristol (even though Mark Taylor's creation is working well for me). I know Bluesky have done Bristol, so it's a reasonable possibility.

    I think the UK coasts, beaches, cliffs and watermasks need a bit of tinkering and the higher LOD data will improve things.

    Then there are regiinal airports. Not sure how many will be done or how well they will be done, but we should find out in a week or so.

    Looking forward to the update immensely.
