Changes mentioned in this dev-shot are part of EGBB update: V0.4.0
We have had many from the community contact us and relay their childhood and adult stories in relation to the history Elmdon Terminal Building situated at Birminghams western Elmdon Apron. Stories about planespotting, flying from the terminal, and other amazing stories.
Many requested that this Historic building is done justice in the simulator, and hence, we have spent a full 2 weeks, solely focusing on researching, modelling, texturing and weathering of this building. We thought that this deserves its own very small post, as it sits deeply within peoples memories and lives.
A few other little updates
|Runway texture touchup|
|Elmdon Apron clutter process begun|
|Elmdon ground markings added|
|ILS Glide Slope Issue fixed|
EGBB – Birmingham Airport
Birmingham Airport (EGBB/BHX) is located 7 nautical miles from Birmingham City in the United Kingdom and is the 7th busiest airport in the country.
BHX is not only an international airport but is also a hub for regional flights within the UK.
Some of the busiest destinations from and to this airport include Germany, Spain, Dubai, Netherlands, France, Greece, Ireland, Spain and not to mention the multitude of regional UK airports.
This airport has unique runway undulations which makes taking off and landing here a treat!

Great to see these projects moving forward. I knew Birmingham airport as Elmdon when growing up in Brum. I now live far away, yet can fly there in the sim. Thanks guys????
