FS2004 – SBRF 1962 Recife. Originally called Ibura Airport, the airport had its name changed to Guararapes Airport in 1948. The facility originated at the time of World War II, when a new airport was built to replace the earlier airfield, Parque do Encanta Moça. With the end of the War, the facility became strategically important as a technical and refueling stop on the route from South America to Europe. We have produced this scenery to provide taxiways and details as they were around 1962 in Recife We have also included new parking to allow the AI aircraft to taxi correctly at the new (old!) airport.
