London Heathrow is one of the best known airports in the world. In 2023 it was the 4th busiest airport in the world and sees flights from every corner of the globe. It is home to a greater variety of aircraft and airlines than perhaps any other airport. Not only does it have a reputation known beyond the aviation industry, it also has a very rich history. Aircraft like the 707, 747, Concorde and A380 have been regular sights at Heathrow throughout the years. If you've got a plane and a destination in mind, chances are you can take a flight there from Heathrow. 

This is an open source scenery. It is currently in beta and is not fully complete. Contributions from the community help make this scenery live up to it's best potential. If you have some experience creating sceneries you can click here to see how you can contribute to this project. Tasks range from beginner friendly to more complex modeling and texturing and there is something available for everyone. 

Open source means this scenery will be constantly improving, similar to addons such as the zibo 737. It also means not all features are complete. Below is a list of complete and work-in-progress features. 

Completed Features: 

  • Custom ortho
  • Custom ground textures
  • AI taxi routes
  • Realistic dirt and grunge
  • 3D grass
  • SAM jetways, marshallers and VDGS
  • Custom buildings, including: 
    • Terminal 2, concourse B
    • Terminal 4
    • Terminal 5, concourse C

Future Features: 

  • More custom buildings, including: 
    • Terminal 1
    • Terminal 2, concorse A
    • Terminal 3
    • Terminal 5, concourse A and B
  • Concorde static model
  • Improved clutter
  • Improved ground markings
  • Ground vehicle routes
  • Improved vegetation

Required Libraries

Installation Instructions

Download and unzip egll-heathrow into your "Custom Scenery" folder

Troubleshooting Issues

Thank you so much ZDP! I assume the gate number ground markings will be covered in a future update per the 4th bullet of "Future Features:". fps is good for me.

Response from the author:

Yep, that's on the to-do list. Some contributors from our discord have worked on some of them, but we haven't had enough volume of open-source contributions to make a big dent in that task yet. Hopefully with this public release more people will be motivated to help contribute here and there.
