FINALLY found the trick to make decent outlines :-)
i had to zoom in much more on the map.
here are 4 more Belgian airports ;
EBUL, Ursel : a former reserve NATO airfield, now used by a airclub
EBSU, St.-Hubert AB, same story
EBSH, St.-Hubert grasfield, mainly used for gliders : did the contours, buildings and rwy, as there is nothing on the RB map apart from the name
EBBX, also a former military reserve field, now used for recreative aviation

Rod, i noticed the outlines for Bertrix are "out of line" with the rwy possition on the RB map ( EBSU also, but not that much ) is there a way to correct this ? please let me know.

That's better, Thomas - well done :-) As you've discovered, it's not difficult, just time-comsuming!

As to the alignment with the RadarBox runways, I really don't know whether it is the RB runways or Google Earth that is inaccurate. Obviously we can't change the RB runways, and should it be Google Earth that's wrong, devising an offset to the outline is completely beyond me.

I have noticed on a few outlines where we have had RadarBox returns, that aircraft tend to align to the outlines rather than the RB runway lines, but we know that many aircraft report wrong positions too, so I don't draw any general conclusions from that.

3 more for today, 2 Belgian, 1 Dutch

another ex reserve field of the Belgian Airforce, Zutendaal EBSL
former main training airfield of the BAF, St.-Truiden EBST
and a Dutch airfield ; Maastricht EHBK, not a busy airport, but due to the cargo, charter and specialy the paintshop facility there, a rather interesting airport

another Belgian airfield/strip, not showing on the RB map
used to be a busy local field with several training schools (SABENA omong them), now reduced to a "recreative" airfield due to political pressure of just a couple of people.
mainly active in w.e.

Grimbergen EBGB
did the buildings in different collor (Type 29)
could somebody give me a list of the different Type collor codes, like the one's used for rwy, taxiway, markings, .....
thanks

Another update for a US airport, this time for the new west runway and extension to 9/27 at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky KCVG.

This is an addition to the existing outline.

Here you are, Clive - have a good trip - I hope the internet there will allow you to share - never seen Gabon on the network before.

Libreville Leon M'ba International - FOOL

RadarBox shows the airport buildings bobbing around in the sea - hope it's not like that when you get there!

An update for Nevada: replace the current outline with this.

Boulder City Municipal - KBVU

EDIT: (RadarBox knows it as what was presumably their old FAA code of 61B).

I did this because Google Earth has a new image of this airport, showing some differences and also because the RadarBox runways were very differently aligned from the previous outline. They still are, rather pointing the finger of blame at the RadarBox runways.

Note RadarBox has the runways, but doesn't know where KBVU is - it's south-east of KLAS.
