The first screenshot for AUscene's Adelaide International on its product page on the PCA Aust website shows the Ikea store next to the Adelaide Airport.

 

As Dean's response to me on my SeneryTech query post did not fill me with sufficient confidence to spend my money on buying the SceneryTech add-ons, yesterday I spent my money on five Eiresim airports (Kerry, Cork and Shannon in Ireland, George Best Belfast City Airport in Northern Ireland and Alicante in Spain).

 

 What I found next to the Belfast one is this:

Are there any other places where, in flight sim sceneries, an Ikea store is next to an airport?

 

In my neck of the woods, there is an urban myth that the two things you can see from outer space are Ikea and Bunnings stores (for those outside Australia, a Bunnings store is a hardware and plant nursery store about the same size as an Ikea store). I have not come across a Bunnings in flight sim yet.

Don't know of any others myself. Can't say I have seen any Bunnings stores in scenery either. Seen the odd McDonalds though :P

I have found another one!

 

It is the Ikea near Sydney airport. 

 

I thought Rono would have picked up and suggested Ikea at Sydney airport in a flash as his suburb of Wolli Creek is on the opposite side of the railway line from where the airport and Ikea are.

 

I had a look at the screenshots on the PCA Aust's website for AUscene's Sydney X Professional v 2.0 but I can't see the Ikea store in that limited selection.

Here's a screenshot from Adelaide International X scenery. As you can see, another instance of Ikea next to an airport :)

Hi Flightsimmers,

 

IKEA is building a new store in Canberra which is due to open in November.

 

Like a few other stores it will be located adjacent to and north of the Canberra airport.

 

Cheers

 

Glenn

Moving from Ikea to other big stores near airports, I came across this Costco near the recently released Eagle County Regional Airport, Vail/Eagle, Colorado (a payware product):

The Costco is on Cooley Mesa Road, Gypsum and is at the end of taxiway A/A1 at the Rwy 25 end of the airport. The dip in the accessway off Cooley Mesa Road (to the right of the screenshots) is probably an elevation issue because the airport product is supposed to be installed over FTX Global which I don't have. I have the airport installed over MSE2 Colorado which is, in turn, installed over FSX Default scenery.

 

The only Costco I have visited is in Melbourne at Docklands - as the name suggests, near the water rather than an airport.

 

Are there other instances of a Costco store near an airport (in reality and in flight sim)?

The Costco store in Brisbane is not near Brisbane Airport (about 30 mins north by road) I can tell you that much :P

I noticed yesterday that the Costco store in Canberra is at the airport - but too recent to appear in the Orbx version.

Maybe they build them near airports so they get free advertising in all the flight sim screenshots that result? :)
