While we know that the scenery was built using actual photographs of the real airport and muni...it was certainly an eye opener to see how close to real the Orbx depiction of Concrete Muni and Mears Field are modeled in FSX.

Not only was it fun to visit the area but it was unreal how well the Orbx folks have captured the area and put it into FSX (P3D). Some great modeling skills for sure.

Yes, I noticed that as well, objects placed to precision. I now want to plant a tree in front of the stairs leading into the pilots lounge.
