365 days of SL, day 344:

We visited a sim called Second Norway last night — just briefly (too briefly, in fact), due to a lack of time for proper exploration, but it was still nice. The area we found ourselves in had an airport, as seen above.

In addition to the runways etc., there was a terminal building, and also various hangars. The latter were occupied by different tennants; many of them sold planes etc., but there were also flight teams and the like.
It was in one of these that I also found these displays:

Who knew that there was such an extensive network of airfields and air routes through SL? It shouldn't surprise me, given I already previously found out about the SLSA (see day 39) and the SLRR (see day 114, day 115, and also day 156), but I still didn't expect it. Of course, I also thought it was rather neat.
The continents shown are Satori, Nautilus, Corsica and Gaeta V on the left, BTW, then Heterocera and Sansara on the right, and Jeogeot on the far right. I still think the Lindens should work on connecting all these continents so that you could fly or sail or swim from any point on the (non-adult) mainland to any other.
Speaking non-adult, apparently no airports of air routes exist on Zindra, the adult continent; but then I suppose the things people go there for have little in common with flying beyond the initial letter.

As for Second Norway, though, looking around some more I came across this rather cute purple/pink plane. I don't think I've seen one like this before, at least not in SL, but hey — why not? :)
