The Google map, using 3D and down low, shows horrendous rises and dips in the runway, BTW

Wideawake only uses one end of the runway, because the other end is dangerous, which they didn't realize when they were building it, apparently.

It's explained in this video https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=wideawake+airfield what the reason for the closure of the other end (windsheer?).

Apparently the airfield is staffed by 19 RAF personnel, headed up by a Wing Commander. I wonder what she did to upset the RAF to get such a forlorn posting?

Hi,I was posted to Ascension in the early 90's for 9 months. I'l dig out some photos which might help but I don't know if I have any of the airfield.

Thanks, a very good addition. A shame Asobo didn't put this one. I'll land there with the DC6 in two hours. A nice step to cross the ocean.

Ahh, gotcha. All good. Either way I'm grateful the two airfields (FHAW & FHSH) are in. Great additions. Thanks.
This is great Superspud! I used to Areobrake through the atmosphere to land on Wideawke in Orbiter. So happy you've made this and Saint Helena. I was just wondering if you've seen my mountain? The hill with the radar stations on top close to RWY 31 does not appear in my fs2020. What did I do to break it lol.

Thanks for adding this.Love having it now.Need the stop over.Just curious though.Looking at google maps the parking area and buildings are on the inland side of the runway as opposed to yours being seaside.Was this something within the sim that made it easier to build up.Cheers Sport.
Nice job on the airport. We do however see duplicated runways using the Navigraph Beta AIRAC. We had to use Navigraph as FHAW is not available in the default SIM airac. Apparently there is a need to set a delete flag in your package to avoid the duplicated runways. See post below. Any chance you can fix this:

On my way to the Airport from Brazil. Nice place to stop on my world trip. Saint Helena next and down to Africa
My dad was commander when it was Ascension Auxiliary Airfield from 1981 to 1983, right up to the start of the Falklands war. I was fortunate to be able to visit several times while he and my mom were there. This was one of the first places I "flew" to when MSFS2020 came out and was very disappointed - no Wideawake Airfield! (Wideawake was the local name for the Sooty Tern that nests all over the island). Anyway, I very much appreciate your work on this. Tell me what areas you need images for and I know my dad will have tons of them (watch out if you visit him on the holidays and he drags out the slide projector!).
Hello, just to inform you that as of the latest update to the sim on 10 Nov, the airport ramp and runways have vanished. The buildings still exist.

I have cleared the cache etc etc. No luck however.

Now working again with your recompiled update, thanks.
Re need for FHAW photos, have a look at this website, Rgds: https://www.naval-history.net/FpxAAscension.htm
Man thank you so much for that! I am in the middle of an around-the-world flight in a Mooney M20 which is not able to cross the atlantic from Africa to Brazil, and have just realised that the Ascension airport is not existing in the sim. I was about to learn how to do custom airports just to be able to continue on the journey as I have planned but you, mate, have just saved the day! Thanks so much!
Hi Superspud - Thanks for your FHAW. I have some photos of Ascension taken 1982 and 2012. They might be of assistance to you. Any suggestions how I can get them to you would be welcome.
We might need an equivalent Port Stanley Airport now.
