I have had absolutely no success in opening these RAR files, particularly the initial Rio scenery needed. Would someone be kind enough to email the opened file to myself as I would love to have this backdated scenery.
Ok, thank you. Is there any link to galeao map circa 1960 ?
Galeão was only the 15-33 runway system and two aprons, each one on one side of 15 threshold.
Right hand, the military apron, that has almost the same buildings, the same area and the same usage today (military transport units, today flying the Boeing 767 and the Lockheed Hercules, by the 60s you could see some DC-6 and other quads).
Left hand, the civil apron, with the terminal and hangars. The vast majority of those buildins are still in use, but adapted to work as a cargo terminal.
So if one could remove all the area inside the green circle (Terminal 1, Terminal 2, their aprons and taxiways, the entire RWY 10-33 system and VARIG (Now TAP) hangar), it`s almost a matter of AFCAD to simulate the old Galeão International Airport (SBGL).
With Recife already made, all the African sceneries and Lisbon around, we could be ready to play with Panair do Brasil DC-8-33, DC-7C and Constellations from Brazil to Europe! Also we can play with VARIGs 707 to New York Idlewild and Real Constellations and DC-6 (why not dream with the Coronado) to Miami, Los Angeles and Tokyo.
Please someone do something for a better SBGL experience!!! :-)

Another scenerey that I think can be easily backdated is Gustavo Luna's Manaus Ponta Pelada (SBMN) airport, wich was Manaus' airport prior the contruction of the actual Eduardo Gomes Intl (SBEG - 1976). Today it is a military base, but the buildings, aprons and runway are the same from it's civil time.
