Yes, I am new to posting on Avsim, however I have been coming here for over 5 years now. Figured it was time for me to chime in :smile:No one has posted this and its killing me... I supose it was all lost in the shuffle of Beta and what not... but who here saw the best kept secret in Webisode 6?Anyone know where that airport is around the 58 second mark? It sure is not in Hawaii...

You mean Barking Sands. I don't think so. The one on the video shows the edge of the runway by the sea, further away and to the right of the buildings. And there are no mountains close by.
It is in Hawaii, I can't remember it's name though. I flew there last night. It's on the westernmost island, the westernmost major airport. It has a name like sandbank or sandbar. Sorry thats a bit vague.

When I joined the beta on the 5th of January, there was stuff from (I presume) the internal guys dating back to early Dec 2011.It was in the feedback section and one of the guys was talking about flying in Alaska.So my guess is............................Fred.

Hey Holger,Good for you! Who in the world would know more about Alaska and the west coast than you? No one! Thank you for this extreme piece of intelligence. So Kodiak Island will be one of the next Locations, a bush flyers heaven.Wonder what they were doing taking the pictures of the 787 Dreamliner mentioned in the AVSIM review?Kind regards,

Honestly, any "hard core" simmer that would of spotted the new runway would of IGNORED Webisode 6. It made Flight to look like some kids game, and it was just BAD. I doubt many people who would of recognized that runway was NOT Hawaii made it past :15, let alone all the way to :58!!! Glad SOMEONE watched it.
