TaskForceFSX re-configured and tested.
FSX Weapons Pack 4
U Taphao, Thailand (VVDN) (Circa 1966)
In October, 1965 construction began to accommodate KC-135 Tankers, B-52
Bombers, P-3 Patrol Aircraft and even the U-2 and SR-71. Although expansion
began in October, 1965 the 11,000 ft runway did not become operational until July
6, 1966 with the completed new facility opening at the end of 1967.
I decided to reverse construct the Air Base (now an International Commercial airport
as depicted in FSX). as this Air Base is hours closer to Vietnam and you will not
need to re-fuel. It will also be home to the TaskForceFSX Group; 9th Bomber
Squadron. I included lots of construction to keep with our time line, but fictitiously
included the finished runway and large taxiways to accommodate the B-52.
