File Description:
This stand-alone combined V2 version of Merrill Field 2016 includes: windsocks, a parked Fedex 727 that was recently donated to the University of Alaska, some missing taxiway lights, and small corrections to the apron layout. It also includes Hope 5HO and Lawing 9Z9. The 2016 version of Merrill Field PAMR dealt with a spectacular malfunction reported by one recent downloader; see the two screenshots. Merrill Field is in Anchorage Alaska, between Anchorage International to the southwest and and Elmendorf Air Force Base to the north. It caters for general aviation and is the land equivalent of the Lake Hood float plane base, with fuel and numerous maintenance facilities, and several hundred parking spots for small planes. There are three runways, and the longest is 4,000 feet of 100 feet wide asphalt, the second 2,635 feet of asphalt 75 feet wide, and the third 2,000 feet of 60 feet wide gravel. The first two have runway lights. It is a controlled airfield with a relatively new control tower to cater for the numerous flights and to coordinate with Elmensdorf and Anchorage International, the latter also controlling flights from Lake Hood and the adjacent gravel strip Z41 (see my Lake Hood scenery). The gravel runway at Merrill Field is not connected with active taxiways to the rest of the airfield; this avoids you being ordered to land on it when flying a plane too large to do so. The enclosed layout shows the runways and the taxiways complete with their assigned letters to help you find your way around, but note that this shows the current gravel runway with its wandering magnetic headings, not the ones prevailing when I made Merrill. The signage on the airfield is not total. The main taxiways are signed and each entry to a runway has a runway sign, but intermediate taxiways to or from a runway are not; if you have turned off the runway at the first possible exit you could then whether it is R or T is, I suppose, irrelevant. Try not to turn onto Merrill Field Drive at an intersection, this is a road that runs through the field. There are almost 50 buildings on the field and threequarters of them have been modelled from photographs specifically for this scenery; some of them were modelled from photos that were of not very good quality, but when the photos were taken I wasn't thinking that I would ever model the field. Which explains why there are buildings I had no photos of at all, of any sort of quality.
