Hello folks, how are you all? I hope you guys are doing well in these strange times. I think it has really been a while since last time I went online here. University has kind of taken its toll towards my free time lately.
Regarding the model airport itself, I have managed to get myself some free time last month and renovated it. Got myself some diorama grass mats, LED lights for night-lighting, and a bunch of other stuffs that I could use to renovate the airport.
Here is the official promotional film of Rackenville International Airport that I uploaded to YouTube recently:
The airport has recently been re-opened to the public, with Abel Jets Virtual Airline operating the inaugural flight. The airport now also sports “The Heaven on Earth” as its slogan to attract more tourists into the island. Seen here is an Abel Jets Virtual Airline Flight 221 operated with a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner (G-AJMA) with Trent 1000 engines in the Boeing Commercial Airplanes livery coming in from Indonesia's capital city of Jakarta during the dusk golden hour at the airport. The inaugural flight was celebrated with water cannon salute and the airport's CEO delivering a speech after the flight's arrival.

Jetways are connected, welcome to The Heaven on Earth!
I think that’s all from me for now, I’ll try to post more updates about the airport when I got the free time to do so. Other than that, thanks for visiting this thread and as always,
