Orbx Releases Mackay Airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator

Popular scenery developer Orbx has recently taken to their Facebook page to announce the release of Mackay Airport (YBMK) for Microsoft Flight Simulator to add to their growing list of Aussie Microsoft Flight Simulator sceneries.

The scenery includes the usual Orbx level quality; high quality orthophotos surrounding the airport, a “painstakingly” detailed rendition of the real Mackay Airport with UHD textures, custom made runways and taxiways, as well as many more details to the airport and the surrounding area.

The scenery was the debut project from Orbx developer Rob Byrne, adding to Orbx’s growing catalogue of sceneries for the not so new Microsoft Flight Simulator.
