Atoll locations in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 (part 1)

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.

Kadhdhoo, Maldives

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.
