We get a few new screenshots of the McDonnell Douglas KC-10 Extender from Aero Dynamics.

Incidentally, the aircraft will be freeware, and you can follow its development at the developer’s Discord Server.

Next is Gate15Scenery providing a new look at Nanki–Shirahama Airport (RJBD) in Japan. According to the developer, the main terminal is almost complete.

Interestingly, Drzewiecki Design has confirmed Renton Municipal Airport (KRNT) and showcased a few new screenshots. Of course, we had already guessed the location, but now it’s official.

Last, but not least Auckland Airport (NZAA) in New Zealand received its product page with tons of new screenshots ahead of its release on November 9 by Flightbeam Studios.

  • Control Tower interiors, comprehensive modeling and perfect for virtual plane-spotting or virtual ATC operations
  • Key terminal interiors modeled for an exceptional immersive view from the cockpit
