365 days of SL, day 346:

Looking at the maps of the Second Life air route network on when exploring the Second Norway airport on day 344 and day 345, I noticed that there were other airports nearby, on Satori. One of them, in Terric, actually had a rather large plane plainly visible on the map, so we went over there to take a look last night.

The airport was still under construction, but nevertheless, it already looked very nice, and quite realistic as far as I could tell (which I'll admit isn't THAT far). There were at least three planes parked there, too: from front to back in the above picture, a lockheed C-130 Hercules, a Dassault Falcon 7X and a Hawker 850XP.

Unfortunately I didn't spend a lot of time on the screenshot, so you get some random clutter in the background here, in the form of a floating sign advertising some sort of building or land development or somesuch. :)

After looking around for a while at the airport (and finding a "JP Collectibles" store on the level beneath the tarmac, which unfortunately had no connection to the Jet Provost), I also noticed more planes in a neighboring sim — a couple of jets that were put there for display purposes.

From left to right, there was a Bell Boeing CV-22B, a Rockwell B-1B Lancer, and a Tupolev Tu-22M3 (aka Backfire C). They were all quite well-designed, and the Lancer was assessed by my plane-loving friend as "one of the best [plane] models in SL", which I think is saying something.

Location: Terric (156, 197, 63) (NEW Miami Airport  UNDER CONSTRUCTION) (main); Peronaut (172, 213, 45) (AMOK big jet display) (bonus)

I suspect we'll be visiting this place a lot :)

That sounds like a distinct possibility. :)

Hey, maybe you should do a project like this, too! Moth's SL Airport of the Week™? :) We could buy a plane and fly along the various routes.
