Scenery developer LatinVFR has released New Orleans International Airport (KMSY) for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport is located in Kenner, Jefferson Parish, Louisiana in the United States. For decades, the airport was known simply as New Orleans international, until the name was officially changed in 2001 to commemorate the 100th birthday of famous Jazz musician, and New Orleans Native Louis Armstrong.
The airport sustained major damage during Hurricane Katrina in 2005, which shut it down for nearly a month. The airport was forced to operate at a much reduced capacity while repairs were made, and it did not return to pre-Katrina levels until September of 2006.
This is LatinVFR’s second version of New Orleans International, which comes to us a year and a half after its original release for P3Dv4+, which you can read about here.
LatinVFR surprise released New Orleans International via a post to its Facebook page, which included a list of features, as well as some brand new images to check out. According to the post, the scenery contains hand made PBR textures for all objects and ground markings, custom modeled bridges across the Mississippi River, and features the current up to date 2020 layout.
