FSX – Douglas C-47 Lee County Mosquito Control. Lee County Mosquito Control District located in Fort Myers Florida has 4 Douglas C-47’s in service. They are based at Buckingham Field. Buckingham Army Airfield was a flexible gunnery training base, used to train gunners who would defend bombers. It was constructed in 1942. The base was closed in 1945. It is operated as a private field and called FL59 – Buckingham Field Airport by LCMCD. My repaint shows one of the C-47 aircraft 834. Thanks to Manfred Jahn for his great model and inspiration that keeps these old birds alive.
