Burning Blue Design Releases Earls Colne Airfield for MSFS

Regional airfield developer, Burning Blue Design, have dropped their latest airstrip; Earls Colne Airfield (EGSR).

Located in Essex, England, the strip began it’s life in 1942 as an RAF training station for fighter pilots during the Second World War. After the conflict, the airfield was briefly used as a storage and maintenance facility by the air force, before being sold on to a private company, seeing a number of commercial uses through the years.

Nowadays, Earls Colne Airfield is home to the Anglian Flight Centre, Anglian War Birds and the Essex and Hertfordshire Air Ambulance. Memorials preserving the airfield’s historical significance have also been replicated in the scenery, a virtual homage to the folk that served at the airfield in reality.

Based on 2023 layout data, the scenery features over 80 custom 3D objects each with full PBR textures, night lighting and animated hangar doors which close at night.
