...then they will now. The best-selling "World Airports" now has a sequel, "World Airports 2." In this game you are able to fly into and semi-manage some of the world's most popular airports including, Rome, JFK, O'Hare, Dulles, Dallas, Toronto, and Frankfurt. Each of the 11 airports, "has been carefully modelled after thousands of hours of research." The airports are full of life and include vehicles, buses, service trucks, and of course, airplanes. It actually sounds like a lot of fun to me but it does give me a bit of the heeby jeebies thinking about the level of detail involved.
The original World Airports for Microsoft's Flight Simulator was a huge success and this all-new version is set to be just a popular with flight sim fans who want to fly to some of the world's busiest airports in Flight Simulator 2002/2004.

Each one has been carefully modelled after thousands of hours of research and development. Unique dynamic systems and a multitude of static objects bring each of the airports to life with a wealth of detail.
