Move the KPHL tower Camera

Hello all, I’m not entirely sure if this is the correct category to post this, since it’s not a feature request exactly so if any mod could explain which category to post this in that would be greatly appreciated.

Anyways, currently the KPHL tower cam position is placed where the tracon tower is, not the actual control tower. This may seem like a small detail to some, but it’s really important to me because this is my home airport.

The correct position should be placed here
(green circle) instead of where it’s currently placed here (red circle)

I thought maybe this would be corrected over the few updates the airport had in the data base.

Tracon basically controls airplanes departing and arriving in a 30-50nm radius and even airplanes flying through airspace.

Whereas the tower usually controls aircraft on the specific airfield.

This is the KPHL tower, maybe we could see this in the sim one day with the new buildings being added in 21.1!

This is the tracon tower that the camera view in the sim is currently using.


I can look into this for you. Will let you know what we decide :)

Thank you, I appreciate it!

We’ve made the switch for you. Expect it in the next scenery push. Thanks for the report


Amazing. You did a thing. Work… 😜


Cut him some slack. Finals week is coming up here.

Godspeed, brave soldier.
