Meigs Field...

No need to explain the nostalgic importance of this airfield… Remember those good old days again with this full recreation of Meigs Field!

Take off again from runway 36 and see the Chicago buildings landscape in the background, just like 20 years ago.

Or simply enjoy this magnificent field to plan your trips around Chicago.

  • Historically accurate runway and, taxiways and parking areas.
  • Full night lighting.
  • Full ATC functionality.
  • VASI22 (historically accurate).
  • Ground services such as push-backs and fuel refueling.
  • Complete remake of the bay and docks by the side of the airport.
  • And much more!

Version 1.4

  • Finally solved the ground pump issue. Now runway, taxiways and aprons are "smooth" concrete, as they should be ;)
  • Added ATC functionality: Ground, Tower and Ground services (including pushback and fuel).
  • Complete rework of taxiways and parking areas (three different parking areas: "Parking (center)", "North parking" and "South parking".
  • Corrected the missing lights problem in some areas of the taxiways. Now all lights are perfectly aligned with taxiway edges.
  • Added new textures for parking slots.
Invite me to a coffee!!

If you would like to support this project (or just to invite to a cup of coffee to remember those good old flight days) it would be much appreciated!

    Thank you! Finally I can go back to the place I would immediately crash my Sopwith Camel endlessly on takeoff back in Microsoft Flight 4.0 back in 1989. I recall being so blown away by the (then state of the art) skyline graphics and being able to pick out the Sears Tower. Brings me back to my childhood, love it! If only I could post pics of how silly it all looks today, the Sears Tower was a black cylinder and the other POI I got excited about was taking off from San Francisco you could see the island of Alcatraz. That consisted of a circle with a rectangle on top below a horrible stick figure recreation of the Golden Gate Bridge. These are the stories I tell my kids about how easy they have it. Back in my day we had video games sure, but they still required imagination. ;)

    Indeed! I also wonder sometimes how is it possible we had that much fun back in the day with those (now looking) silly lines, compared to the graphics we have today... This prooves that imagination and attitude are what make experiences great, and not graphics, realism or playability

    back then, we used our minds to recreate the graphics... nowadays, we are so fortunate that we actually complain when the graphics are off, instead of just recreating the correct ones in our minds. Back then we were more content with the way things were, instead of how the things should be. Thanks for a great recreation of a fantastic little airfield loved by many.

    Hello. This scenery is really good, BUT, since the latest update, it now has vanished. I've even re-downloaded it and installed it again just to be sure but it's no longer on the world map.

    Not really sure what is causing that... The airport is perfectly compatible with the update (and it works in my system without the need to reinstall). As a suggestion, try uninstalling, launching the game in the area (without the airport), quit, reinstall and launch the game again. This should refresh cache. Let me know if it works

    Hello, sadly that has not worked. To update - the buildings and land are all okay, but there is no runway or actual airport in the sim.

    Try installing a previous version of the airport (i.e 1.3), run the game, quit, and install the last version (1.4) back... This worked for one user (the only one I´m aware that has had a similar issue like yours). v.1.3 here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/1u8rbew197srua4/Meigs%20Field%202020%20v1.3.zip?dl=0

    Was seeing the same as leebrompton. GuillermoZS, your Nov 7. suggestion to install 1.3 version and then go to 1.4 worked for me, thanks for making 1.3 available again. This terrific package is too good for us not to encourage your further efforts and refinement. There does appear to be something in v1.4 that doesn't play nice with the recent patches. Not your fault of course, and appreciate this workaround.

    Great to hear! Yes, patch 1.10.11 broke it again and our beloved Meigs disappeared. Pending your new version however, I can confirm that the same workaround for last patch works again. Install and run sim with v1.3, exit, delete v1.3 and install 1.4 and all is well with Chicago once again.

    It can be an internet connection issue. Let me know if, once everything is properly loaded, you still find any problem in the airport. Cheer!
