Tenerife North Airport (GCXO) is infamously known for being the airport where the worst aviation accident ever occurred. In 1977, two Boeing 747 aircraft collided resulting in the death and injury of hundreds of people. Bad weather and poor communication were the results of the disaster.
Since then, the airport has moved on to be an integral part of tourism and cargo. Many airlines including Ryanair, Vueling, Iberia and others frequent the airport both daily and seasonally. Whilst Tenerife North is still popular within the Canaries, it is less utilised compared to Tenerife South Airport. There are plenty of connections to other airports in the Canary Islands, as well as other parts of Spain and beyond.
Installing the product is a standard affair through the simMarket installation process. It is worth noting that the scenery is only compatible with those that own Tenerife South (or Tenerife Vol. 1) from MK-Studios.
Included in the installation is a brief document explaining the scenery and a few other key bits of information, as well as a configuration tool.
Looking at the airport itself, I could immediately tell this was an MK-Studios airport. They have a distinct look and feel to the texture quality and I was very impressed by the high-resolution ground textures. MK-Studios does an outstanding job at creating incredibly good looking ground poly. In particular, the parking stands look great and the use of environmental effects really adds a lot of life to the airport. The level of detail is sharp and clear, which I really appreciate in any scenery. I also like the fact that there’s variation in the texture work on the ground for things such as the hatched no-parking markings and also cracks in the concrete.
