I’ve been doing some sightseeing in Microsoft Flight Simulator, flying over some of the major atoll locations around the world, and other famous Pacific island locations (e.g. Wake Island, featured in many Battlefield and other games)
Henderson Field, Midway Island – PMDY
Bora Bora Airport – NTTB
Wake Island – PWAK
Great Chagos Bank
The Maldives has many atolls spread across a whole archipelago of islands
VRMO Kooddoo – North eastern rim of the Huvadhu Atoll, Maldives
This airport doesn’t appear to be in MSFS.
Thimarafushi – Thaa Atoll, Maldives
This is an odd one – in MSFS the island with the airport is just rendered as a large blocky beach:
Chuuk Lagoon, Micronesia – Chuuk International Airport PTKK
This is a view from approx 8000ft, the southeast rim of the atoll and looking back towards larger islands in the center:
I’ll follow up with another similar post soon.
