After more than a year of hard work, steep learning curves and lots of frustrating episodes I can finally announce that a major US Army Air Force training base c1942-45 is coming to FSX.
Hobbs Army Air Force base in Hobbs, New Mexico was a major training base for B-17 crews prior to leaving for Europe. It was also a base for the Beech AT-11 'Kansan' as these were used to train the bomb aimers, navigators and turret gunners prior to letting them loose on the B-17's. It had housing for 5,000+ crewmen and officers, an on-site hospital, it's own movie theatre, two churches, an on-site railyard/sub-depot to bring in supplies and an on-site factory complex used for the manufacture of the prefabricated buildings units.
What do you get in the package?
The main Hobbs AAF base including AI traffic in the form of B-17's, AT-11's and Stinson L-4's and over 250 custom made building and vehicle models.
Two auxiliary fields at their historically correct locations which were used for touch and go practice and as emergency landing fields in case of difficulties.
Seven precision bombing targets at their historically correct locations.
Note: All of the above airfields are selectable as new items in the FSX airport selection screen.
So enough of the words how about some pictures?
That apron has parking for 70+ B-17's! It is set up for parking too so you can start at a large number of locations on the apron.
