MacDonald-Cartier Ottawa : our own screenshots






FSX. What are we talking about ? The last payware scenery of a canadian airport. A mid-size platform located in Ottawa, canadian Capital, located in Ontario. And i suspect that Simaddons will keep updating this scenery, released last month.








Two runways, one main terminal, cargo gates, more than hundred of buildings.















Main terminal with animated jetways.







Not shure if Air Transat is operating here ! It's really one of Canada Jazz's platform


.







The scenery is completed with Ottawa center town with the canadian parliement.


Everywhere in the vicinity of Ottawa, the developer put custom ground textures.


(updated). But, right behind the parliemant, there is this land where i grew up. Gatineau, Quebec, it's called. And if the national anthem is sung, i recognise the canadian flag, but i secretly sing "Oh Quebec, terre de nos aieux, ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux../."


























Nice textures effect on ground.










































The airport in winter. As already told, CYOW scenery includes the same scenery


manager for winter textures and de-icing.







While half a dozen of designers declined interest for a canadian airport, it seems more and more than


Simaddons will be able to design someday a large platform, maybe Toronto or Montreal. It's a huge amount of work for a single developer but Simaddons has prouved its interest for Canada.


There are other airports ; Saint-John, Winnipeg, Kelowna, Toronto City, Moncton Intl etc !
