ShortFinal Design Releases Freeware Boston Airport v2 (XP11)

ShortFinal Design has today released a major update for their freeware scenery of Boston International Airport (KBOS) for X-Plane 11. Covering not only the airport itself but the city of Boston as well, ShortFinal Design is well-known for releasing high-quality freeware sceneries for the community.

The new version of the scenery brings all-new 3D vegetation, updated airport layout, reworked ground textures and markings, improved orthoimagery, added rain and snow effects to ground, and added custom jetways using SAM plugins.

Additionally, extensions to terminals B and E were added as well as custom landmarks around the city, including Millenium tower, Four Seasons One Dalton, or National Grid gas tank.

The scenery can be downloaded through the X-Plane.org forums free of charge. You will though need a registered account on the forums in order to download the scenery.

Logan International Airport (KBOS) is the main airport serving the city of Boston, Massachusetts, United States. With over 40 million passengers annually, the airport is the 16th-busiest airport in the United Statues. It serves as a hub for Cape Air, Delta, and JetBlue and sees both domestic and international flights.

I've been a flight sim enthusiast for some time now, and I've always enjoyed flying to various destinations all over the world. My favourite airport is by far Corfu with its scenic and challenging approach. I founded FSNews in May 2019.
