A beautiful new scenery package from Marcel "Teutonique" Wislet, converted with permission by Michel Picard (aka Brother). Socotra's OYSQ airport is beautifully detailed, as well as some of the surrounding villages.
You can thank and/or contact Marcel Wislet here.



Warning:
This package is enhanced with objects from the OpenSceneryX library. It will work without but you'll lose a lot of objects. For those who do not have it yet, you can download the latest package installer here: http://www.opensceneryx.com. The scenery includes a reminding of the Mori village, the town of Hadibou (the largest of the island – 6.5 nautical miles of OYSQ, azimuth 084) and its small oil terminal 3.5 nautical miles further East.

From wikipedia:
"Socotra is a small archipelago of four islands in the Indian Ocean off the coast of the Horn of Africa some 190 nautical miles (220 mi; 350 km) south of the Arabian peninsula. It is very isolated, and through the process of speciation, a third of its plant life is found nowhere else on the planet. It has been described as the most alien-looking place on Earth"

Mori airfield, on Socotra island, has a 03/21 paved runway which is 3,300 meters long by 47 meters wide.
This runway has been built during the Cold War by the Soviet Union on the basis of agreements with the then Democratic Republic of Yemen. Socotra-Mori airport is an ancient military air base called Ras-Karma where some assesments say that is still operationnal a russian military intelligence center of the FAPSI, equivalent to Echelon system operated by USA and commonwealth allies.
