Chicago Meigs - KCGX

Chicago Meigs Field isn’t an airport anymore why is it still on IF?

Because I like it, there’s no reason to remove it. If you don’t like it, don’t fly there:)

We still keep in old airports, so long as they are still there. Airports that are closed have [X] before them. I will get one put in front of its name.

Good points but how long ago was it demolished way before IF even existed.

A) FDS plans to release a classic aircraft.
B) Maybe they want to keep it as a reference or homage to Micrsoft Flight Simulator.

Which doesn’t include KCGX?

Just like flushing KFLU

Because if you’re an old timer Simmer, like those of us who go all the way back to the SubLogic days, a Sim without Meigs just isn’t right!

I think the airport should only be there if it exists. I don’t know if anyone has built over KCGX so I won’t say anything more than its a great airport.

They have- it is a park now.

I recall developers saying something to the extent “we included it because we can”. :) Yeah it doesn’t exist any more, but it used to and was quite a popular field, - The beauty of the simulator world is that you can bend the rules a little and fly in places you wouldn’t be able to otherwise.
