Third-party developers shared new screenshots about upcoming add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator and announced a relevant airport. 

We start with the announcement as Fly2High revealed the first screenshot of the old William P. Hobby Airport serving Huston in the United States While it's not as popular nowadays as the newer George Bush Intercontinental Airport, it still hosts a healthy amount of airline traffic (especially operated by Southwest) and it's going to be a nice have in the simulator. 

For now, we get to see only the raw 3D model for the main terminal, so it's likely to take some time.

Next, Aerosoft shared new screenshots of its upcoming Airbus A330. The images showcase the model in quite a few liveries, a quick look at the flight deck with the EFB tablet, alongside its flight plan and charts displays on top of the performance calculator. Incidentally, the developer is going to include the ability to change the usable runway length. 

Last, but not least, Pyreegue showcased more images of East Midlands Airport (EGNX) in the UK. We get to take a good look at the Amazon warehouse and its massive parking lot this time around.

You can check it out below.
