When you think of major airports in the UK that play a large role in the British economy, what comes to mind? London Heathrow is likely right at the top of that list, Gatwick is probably in there too, and Manchester is surely there too. I’d nearly put money on it that East Midlands is somewhere toward the bottom.
It might surprise you to learn that despite being the 13th busiest airport in the UK in 2016/2017, having handled only just over 4.5 million passengers, it plays a huge role in receiving and dispatching huge amounts of cargo every year. In fact, it serves 36 destinations spread over 10 cargo operators, just with freight alone. That’s a huge amount of cargo for a single-runway airport! So if you’re a simmer like myself who enjoys hauling your MTOW of cargo on the odd occasion (mainly because cargo doesn’t complain about those hard landings), you’ll appreciate the job that UK2000 have done in bringing their rendition of East Midlands to X-Plane.

Presentation

UK2000 have always been a name that represents quality and accuracy in sceneries for Prepar3D and FSX (and they even still develop for FS9), and so to expect the same with the X-Plane products is a natural thing. Fortunately, UK2000 doesn’t let us down by just running their sceneries through a conversion and calling it a day – they’ve quite clearly spent the time making sure every last detail is perfect for the X-Plane world. Comparing with satellite imagery, you can spend time yourself going over the airport grounds and spotting out small details like light placements, one by one, and finding that they’re exactly where you’d expect to find them.
