Today third-party developers had plenty of news to share about upcoming scenery add-on for Microsoft Flight Simulator, alongside several releases.

First of all, we learn the release date for Technobrain’s promising Osaka Kansai International Airport (RJBB) in Japan.

It’ll come on March 22 with a release on Simmarket. Pricing info has not been shared just yet, but you can check out the trailer from a few days ago, in case you missed it.

Next comes Verticalsim, which teased Ontario International Airport(KONT) in California, US.

While the airport wasn’t officially named, some work-in-progress images of the terminals have been shared, and it’s pretty much unmistakable.

We also hear from Skyline simulations, which showcased the current work-in-progress status of  Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (KCVG) in the United States.
