I am pleased to share this airport scenery for Casement Aerodrome, Baldonnel which is situated near to Dublin, Ireland.
This was my 1st Airport Scenery project that included handcrafted custom built models.
The project has has evolved over the last few months and now includes the interior of 3 Hangars, along with the Control Tower Interior. Many, many hours have been put into the making of this.
Summary Of The Scenery Details:
86 Custom built buildings/objects/signs exclusively made for Casement Aerodrome. These include to mention a few – Memorials, Perimeter Fence, Base Church, Hedges, even Hay Bales! along with all the Buildings on the base including the Hangars & Control Tower.
Custom Ground textures to accurately represent the unique parking / helicopter positions, along with runway markings.
Features Animated Sliding Doors On Hangar One & Hangar Five (operating On A Timer)
Hangar Interiors for Hangars One, Three, & Five with custom flooring which reflect sunshine and lighting.
Custom (experimental) taxiway lighting, each one being hand placed into position. These taxiway lights are more of a realistic blue colour than the default purple coloured orb taxiway lights. They reflect light onto the surrounding ground if wet, or snowy, and also fade into the distance rather than having the same intensity.
The entire perimeter fence (5.5 miles of it)
Apron & Street Lighting.
1000’s of carefully placed stock objects to create a realistic scene
Total number of objects in this scenery = 2,538
Installation: Simply extract the 2 files (jepp2001-objects-eime-casement AND jepp2001-airport-eime-casement) into your community folder, then restart the sim.

Casement Aerodrome Aviation History:
The aerodrome was originally run by two pilots from the Royal Air Force.
The airfield was the one from which the first successful east-west Atlantic crossing by a Junkers W33 aeroplane, the Bremen, took off on 12 April 1928 with Baron Hünefeld, Hermann Köhl and Captain James Fitzmaurice as co-pilot.
The first Aer Lingus flight took place from here on 27 May 1936. It was also the destination at which Douglas Corrigan landed on his famous ‘wrong way’ flight across the Atlantic on 18 July 1938.
In February 1965 Baldonnel was renamed Casement Aerodrome in honour of the Irish nationalist Roger Casement.
