St. Louis Lambert International Airport (KSTL), also known as simply Lambert Field or Lambert, has been released for Flight Simulator by Realworldscenery. After more than a year in development, the studio has now released its depiction of Missouri’s largest and busiest airport.
Lambert had its peak at the turn of the century. The downfall of TWA, the airports’ main airline at the time, together with the massive difficulties faced by the aviation industry post-9/11, led to a severe reduction in aircraft movements and served passengers. From 30 million yearly passengers handled in 2000, Lambert is now averaging half those numbers, serving mostly domestic flights under the Southwest Airlines flag.
Still, St. Louis Airport still holds the charm of old times with its iconic terminal. For Flight Simulator, Realworldscenery is bringing a detailed and accurate representation of KSTL, with all its landmark buildings and structures that respect the current 2021 layout.
The developers have used hundreds of photos to recreate the necessary textures and models that are needed to bring this airport to life, with realistic ground clutter and over 100 custom buildings. This version of KSTL also features dynamic night lighting and PBR for both the buildings and the ground.
St. Louis Lambert International Airport by Realworldscenery is now available from SimMarket for around $22.
