US Coast Guard Air Station Scenery

Hi,In the fullness of time, please consider including the USCG station at Wood's Hole, MA. It has docking for one medium and one small boat (sorry, don't know the real name, no offense) and the dock doubled as a helicopter parking place (not the super-big size one). Sorry I don't know the real names. thanks,danI spent eleven summers teaching there and even got to look around inside a chopper and a small boat. When the QE2 went aground in the channel between Woods Hole and Martha's Vineyard, that station got very busy. Also after Hurricane Bob in 1991. I had no idea those boats [ships? certainly not cutter-sized] could tow sailboats half-filled with water out of the main channel. Those boats must be all engine. That station also brought in Coast Guard skyhooks(?) skycranes(?), to lift fairly large yachts. Even half a mile away, the noise was deafening. The staff there were very nice, unless Clinton was visiting MV. After 9/11 they pretty much became a closed and much-more-guarded dock.
Please donate today!

Jim,Any chance you could attempt the Park Police heliport in DC?I have a freeware mission that could use that scenery that I am preparing for rerelease, and I could include your scenery in the mission.The mission is called Palm 90 and is available here if you'd like to look at the current version:http://www.box.net/shared/q8t46n4hkqCheers,

JIM!Yep, we did trade emails ages ago! and you're correct in was in ref to Fly2. Wow, I'd forgotten all about that. But I also did take a long hiatus from flightsimming.I'd vote for option #1 but the big question is: are you making this for FS9 or FSX?I'll drop ya an email in a bit.Andy

Crabster,Being from NJ, I have two "flavors" of ACY in the works: 1. Full ACY with corrected AFCAD, terminal, CGAS ACY, 177th flightline and alert shacks or 2. the CGAS ACY to be used with default scenery. :)Which one would you like to try? Neither are finished. Send me an email to jpd172
netscape net. I may try my hand at the FAA TECH Ctr in GMAX...I'm planning to re-do the EGC scenery I uploaded a few weeks ago.Regards,JimPS weren't you with the 177th? I think we traded emails a long time ago, may be regarding FLY2 or the museum at KWWD
