Welcome to London Stansted Airport, one of London's main gateways, which has expanded to rival Heathrow and Gatwick. This Scenery is the forth major version of the popular airport. It inlcludes a new hi-reoluation base image and new buildings
Stansted airport began its life in 1942 as a USAAF Base with a standard RAF triangular runway layout. In 1946 the airport officially opened as a civil aerodrome retaining many of its wartime buildings. It continued to grow with the addition of a 1968 terminal on the Western side.
Stansteds most famous aircraft to land took place in 1983 when the space shuttle Enterprise touched down on top a modified 747. In the Early 1990s the construction of a new terminal, satellites and apron layout on the eastern side was under way. This expansion has continued right up to today with the recent opening of the first part of Apron E.
