First of all, we get to take a nice look at the external model of the Aero Dynamics’ McDonnell Douglas KC-10 Extender.

We already know that aircraft will be freeware, and you can follow its development at the dedicated Discord Server.

We move on to IniScene/IniBuilds, which released a trailer of its upcoming Queenstown Airport (NZQN) in New Zealand.

This one is slated to be coming soon, and you can see what it looks like below.

We also get to see two more testing videos for the upcoming Pilatus Porter PC-6 by FlightSimGames, showcasing the floats and the water rudders in action.

Last, but not least, Drzewiecki Design released another airport in Poland, Lublin Airport (EPLB).

It can be purchased on SimMarket for approximately $11 plus applicable VAT.
