    RAF Fayid, Egypt

    A new part of the world and a new theater

    RAF Fayid, Egypt FS9


    initially a landing ground before WW2, Fayid was one of a number of airfields developed on the east bank of the Suez canal,
    70 miles northeast of Cairo . opened in December 1940, became home to RAF Wellington bomber units, later B24's of the
    USAAF 9th airforce for operations in the Balkans esp raids on the Polesti oilfields. Training units for commonwealth
    Tomahawk and the RAF's first Marauder sqd's also made Fayid home aswell as PR Spitfire's and RAF C47 transports for supply and agent dropping to partisans in Yugoslavia.
    1956, airfield was abandoned after attack's by Royal Navy Supermarine Attacker's during the Suez crisis


    You'll need my Manston 44 scenery, and the recently uploaded Ted Andrews RAF building library.
    find both in the SOH FS9 scenery library


    A bit shot on correct vehicle's, but found some by Edmundo Abad that fit the bill


    For traffic you will need ---jyai_b24_fs9_1.zip by John Young from Avsim
    the paint is'nt correct but close enough to the unit's station'd at Fayid

    Thanks Ian. So far we didn't have much scenery in this region.

    Cheers,
    Huub

    Your welcome, Isamlia is only a few miles north, so Wesseley's are probably a familiar sight in this area

    Thanks Ian,

    I've seen many B24s, both static and flying. But so far I only came across this one and not a Wellesley in sight.....



    And no, it is not the FCS one!

    Cheers,
    Huub

    No its the Alphasim one. Can't really be used as AI and static aircraft is my experience. (I had a package installed for the FCS airfield.)

    "airfield was abandoned after attack's by Royal Navy Supermarine Attacker's during the Suez crisis"

    I've read everything I can get my hands on about Suez, but never heard a reference to any Attackers being used. What's the scoop on these - an Attacker would look rather nice in those yellow/black stripes!

    Thats me having a brain melt, i obviously meant Hawker Sea Hawk's . Attacker's missed Suez by 2 year's, being withdrawn from front line service in 54

    No its the Alphasim one
    Shame, but im loving the lattice work

    Ian, will this possibly work in FSX?
    Probably not, unless your familiar with ADEX and Sbuilderx, to change the background.
