SIM720 Santa Barbara Airport (KSBA) - California USA
Santa Barbara Airport (KSBA) for flights to Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Francisco, Denver, Seattle, Portland or our sister airport Santa Catalina(KAVX).
This is a great airport - over 80 buildings modelled, Interior perspective on the buildings (believed to be a world first), animated people, and 2 millimetre / pixel tiled texture on the taxiways and runways. All of this has been achieved without affecting the frame rate performance.
Commercial airline flights began in 1932 on Pacific Seaboard Airlines. United Airlines then inaugurated flights from Santa Barbara/Goleta in 1936 and the Spanish-style terminal building was commissioned by United Airlines, using the same architects as for the Arlington Theatre.
The USA Marine Corps was operating here 1942 to 1946 with a peak of 4,000 personnel, training 24 squadrons with 101 accidents – hopefully they learnt from their mistakes. But can you name the John Wayne WWII film stationed at Goleta, the name for this airport until it was annexed to the city of Santa Barbara by a 7 miles (11 km) long, 300 feet (90 m) wide corridor, mostly under the Pacific Ocean.
Most popular flight destinations in recent history have been Los Angeles California, Phoenix Arizona, San Francisco California, Denver Colorado, Seattle Washington, and Portland Oregon. In 2013 the airport hosted flights by United, American, US Airways, Frontier and Alaska airlines.
