Comments by the author:
This European airport was difficult to create due to the nature of Laminar’s exclusions, the intricate X-Europe roads network and the constant extensions to Liege airport, leaving sat imagery permanently obsolete. I had to make compromises and decided to cover the airport’s area with grass instead of the dirt or sand, the old buildings to be destroyed, and old taxiways almost vaporizing.
