Antalya, Turkey. WIP stage, but downloadable from https://github.com/BAWV12/LTAI
IMHO, ground definition is not good.

On my experiments with weather discontinuity I found nice airport KTEX - Telluride Regional Airport, presented as usually with only empty concrete surfaces. I added some shared models :

It is interesting mountain airport with not so easy approach, runway is on the valley edge and landing is similar with landing on the aircraft carrier :

Nice work. Consider adding those objects to the scenery database.

That looks like a slightly challenging airport: CFIT if too low approach or downdraft, kind of tight space when going around (between two hill tops according to procedures), and field elevation 9069 ft according to SkyVector (which could be interesting on a hot day, in essence with high density altitude).
