What exactly you don't get it? What I find amazing is that this airport is full of "corpses" of old Boeing 727's all over the place.

ok, now that makes sense... i didn't know if you were talking about the optical mishmash and how it looked like there were push-me-pull-you craft (two tails in opposite directions) or how one appears to have a huge jet exhaust and another seems to be covered in some sort of tinfoil stuff...

when i looked at it, i saw only a picture of six aircraft and a huge concrete control tower...

I did note those seemingly derelict 727s (in particular the leaning one in the foreground). I wonder if one should add static aircraft to to the scenery or not in a case like this.

I think this could be a fun airport to recreate in FG with these 727 :D
