Wow! That is cool! I'm going to have to check that out in both FSX & X-Plane for comparison!

For reference, this is SPGL Airport (Chagual):

Thanks for the great video link!

Cheers! :mrgreen:

Doesn't appear in either FSX steam or, the now defunct, FSW.
Haven't tried x-plane-11.
It is in X plane-11 but, the runway is sitting on the side of a hill and is severely banked.
I did find a download for FSX at Flightsim.com.

By default the South America Scenery is not loaded so I had to download the updates and re-apply my license. Once I did that the scenery in X-Plane 11 looked a little closer to reality but no where near the quality of the video. The runway was interesting as it also had some dips in places in the runway. Very neat!

Here's another one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXECFuWzokQ

Antonio Nariño Airport (IATA: PSO, ICAO: SKPS) is located in the town of Chachagüí and serves the city of Pasto, which is located 35km away from the airport. The airport only handles domestic flights in addition to military operations and private charters
