Stark’s Twin Oaks From Bill Womack

Bill Womack has released one of the first additional airfields for the recently released FTX PNW from Orbx and of course it oozes ‘Womack quality’ and realism. Kay Kae of Orbx writes “….. Nestled in the rolling farmland of the fertile Willamette Valley near Portland, Oregon, Stark’s Twin Oaks Airpark is ideally located for sightseeing in the Pacific Northwest. The rural location makes for less traffic and a relaxed atmosphere, while providing an easy jumping-off point for flights to either the coast to the west, or the rugged peaks of the Cascade range to the east…..”.

“…… The scenery includes a large area of 30cm/pixel aerial photoreal terrain, featuring the various orchards, Alpaca ranches and small farms in the area. One special point of interest in the area is the massive Glacier rock quarry, located a few miles to the southeast of the field.  And what is possibly a first for an FS airport: multiple elevations. Twin Oaks is carved from the side of a gentle slope, and as a result, the Starks’ house, garage and two of the hangars are on a hill overlooking the rest of the field. Lead developer Bill Womack has obsessively researched and photographed the airport over the last few years, with the enthusiastic support of owners Bob and Betty Stark. We’re proud to offer the definitive sim rendition of one of Oregon’s aviation jewels. For more information and to purchase visit our site…..”.

Oh and of course Bill’s scenery is top notch too, but I’m biased. 😉

A fantastic video Andreas, well done. Obviously a lot of work went into this video and I didn’t think the music was at all intrusive, in fact just the opposite. It was very calm. Perhaps Peter should check the volume level on his speakers. 😉

Keep up the good work.

An absolutely top notch jaw-dropping video which would have been perfect with just the natural sounds but without the music which got louder and more intrusive. Thankfully I’ll be buying the scenery and not that.

Best scenery ever made. If you’re in doubt, watch my video at http://www.vimeo.com/11239898
