    Lajes Airport or Lajes Air Base, is a multi-use air field, home to the Portuguese Air Force Base Aérea Nº4 and Azores Air Zone Command, a United States Air Force detachment (operated by the 65th Air Base Wing of United States Air Forces in Europe), and a regional air passenger terminal located near Lajes and 15 km (9.3 mi) northeast of Angra do Heroísmo on Terceira Island in the Azores, Portugal.

    Some historic facts:

    The Archipelago of the Azores is composed of nine volcanic islands situated in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean. The Portuguese archipelago is located about 1,500 km (930 mi) west from Lisbon and about 3,900 km (2,400 mi) east from the east coast of North America. The archipelago, and economic exclusion zone, forms the Autonomous Region of the Azores, one of the two autonomous regions of Portugal. Its main industries are: agriculture, dairy farming (for cheese and butter products primarily), minor livestock ranching, fishing and tourism, which is becoming the major service activity in the region.

    There are nine major Azorean islands and an islet cluster, in three main groups. These are Flores and Corvo, to the west; Graciosa, Terceira, São Jorge, Pico and Faial in the centre; and São Miguel, Santa Maria and the Formigas Reef to the east. These extend for more than 600 km (370 mi) and lie in a northwest-southeast direction. The vast extent of the islands defines an immense exclusive economic zone of 1,100,000 km2 (420,000 sq mi). The westernmost point of this area is 3,380 km (2,100 mi) from the North American continent. All of the islands have volcanic origins, although some, such as Santa Maria, have had no historical activity since the islands were settled. Mount Pico, on the island of Pico, is the highest point in Portugal, at 2,351 m (7,713 ft) in altitude. The Azores are actually the peaks of several of the tallest mountains on the planet, as measured from their base at the bottom of the ocean, breaking the surface of the Atlantic.

    These 9 islands have naturally evolved into three recognizable groups located within the Azores Platform; they are:

    The Eastern Group (Grupo Oriental) of São Miguel, Santa Maria and Formigas Islets
    The Central Group (Grupo Central) of Terceira, Graciosa, São Jorge, Pico and Faial
    The Western Group (Grupo Ocidental) of Flores and Corvo.

    very beautiful airport because i grew up here in this air force base shared between Portugal and US, probably one of the most important (strategically __________) US bases because all US military planes normally stop here due being in the middle of US and Europe so the pilots can rest and arm the planes, i grew up in this base (BA-4) because my father was an officer of Portuguese AF (from 80´s to 2000´s. This airport was very well done and it is an amazing place to explore, it has a very big runway for all type of planes, congrats tropicalsim, check my YT for reviews (guitargamery)


    because i grew up in this airforce base, i was very happy with the detail put into it..i really wish they add some military aircrafts, c-130...c-5 well the ones they see fit because the parking zones (not the civilian airport but in the other side of the runway, was always and still is full of US aircrafts..p-3, jets all kinds since this is a very important Base for the US...still it is a Portuguese base as well, tx for this Tropical sim...you could do some love details in the next patch, please
