Would be great  if they  did a collection  of RAAF  Bases  in Australia but when I  raised  this  question  a long while back  I got areply from

John  that it  was to hard  to get pictures of the Bases  for secuirty  reasons.  And  mabye also not a big market  either.But  I  hope

that maybe  some Freeware  designers  will  give these  bases  a go. After all  there  is some great ones  for FS9  but they  were  never  converted  over to FSX. Cheers  Greg 8)

You wouldn't believe I walked around the entire base today (for my work), every hangar, all up the apron, even sat in a C130H left seat.

Could not take photos though as I was escorted all day. I was thinking - man if I only had my SLR and clearance I would have photographed the whole thing. That was a once in a lifetime day today.

I know this is a bit of an old post, but fellas, i know personally, id pay good money for versions of Pearce, Richmond, East Sale, Williamtown and Amberley if you were to ever do them... Especially just off the screen shot there of Richmond, i really think you should release a version ;)

Regards Amberley ( YAMB ) , this is a work in progress , see attached link:

http://aussiex.org/forum/index.php?/topic/8767-raaf-amberley-modification/

With P3D now involved , I think that a more balanced view of security will prevail ,

LM know only too well that what security applies to what is within the confines of buildings ,

and aircraft ,the external views are all readily available on google earth and magazines and

videos.

Since LM's P3D is a military simulator it is reasonable to presume that we will be getting

good detail military air base scenery in the future.

Cheers

I have an Uncle who served there as an Officer, his job involved working with the communications equipment that allowed communications between aircraft and the ground. I think he was a Squadron Leader or Wing Commander at the time you were there, although he was not a pilot. I realise it's a big base, but do you remember an Officer by the surname of Bournes? I also heard of a colleague of his whose nickname was Adolf. Ring any bells, Dags?
