KDTW - Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport Tracking Thread


Welcome to the KDTW tracking thread! Here, I will post updates on KDTW as well as answer any questions you guys have. I encourage you all to share your pictures of Detroit Metro with me as this helps me to make a more realistic airport. Thanks!


Status: Concourse C in progress



Please Note:

  • This is a rather large airport and development will take several months. Please be patient!

  • These are work-in-progress shots and everything seen is subject to change!

  • Updates are most likely to come Fridays and Sundays (however this does not mean that this will always be the case)


About me

Hi! I’m Sami and I have been an airport editor for 2 years. I have over 20 airports in Infinite flight (2D and 3D combined) and more on the way! My favorite airport that I have created is OJAI, but I have a feeling KDTW might be a close second! Feel free to PM with any questions

Here is the first update that can be found in the Project Midwest thread:

I worked for a few hours today on KDTW. Here is a very early design for concourse D. Please note, this is one day of work, everything seen is subject to (and almost certainly will) change

Here are WIP shots after today’s work. Concourse D is no longer floating and some jet bridges have been added. I also made the gates more detailed and did some behind the scenes work. As of right now, KDTW is set to come with a custom tower!

Oooo I can not wait. Hey, I have something that you can put in DTW that can be realistic. Is it possible if you can put like the Delta Logo on the Jet bridges like they do in real life? Here is an example.
