About This File
Tønsberg Airport, Jarlsberg (Norwegian: Tønsberg flyplass, Jarlsberg; ICAO: ENJB) is a general aviation airport located at Sem in Tønsberg, Norway. It consists of a 799-by-18-meter (2,621 by 59 ft) asphalted runway and a 900-meter (3,000 ft) taxiway. Jarlsberg is used for a variety of activities, including glider pilots, light and microlight aircraft, radio-controlled aircraft, parachuting and the annual air show Wings & Wheels. The airport is owned by Thor Solberg Aviation and operated by Jarlsberg Luftsportssenter.
The airport opened in 1937 and was taken over by the Luftwaffe in 1940. It was at first used as a dummy airfield, but from 1944 the Luftwaffe carried out upgrades. These were not finished by the end of Second World War. Jarlsberg was from 1947 to 1959 used by the Royal Norwegian Air Force (RNoAF), although the functions were eventually taken over by the nearby Sandefjord Airport, Torp. Braathens SAFE operated scheduled services from 1952 to 1959, and later also Thor Solberg and Fred. Olsen Airtransport also operated scheduled services. Activity has been limited to various general aviation activities since the late 1960s.

Please do report bugs.
Orthophotos for this region are recommended. NO source seems to be the best choice as seen in the screenshots. ( screenshots are with NO source --> mask 20 - ratio 0.2 )
A description on how to get NO source for ortho can be found here: https://forum.thresholdx.net/topic/5-ortho4xp-master-source-list/
I also recommend Norway Pro VFR Scenery found here: http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/32684-norway-pro-vfr-scenery/
How to install:
1: Unpack contents of the .zip file and copy it to the x-plane/custom_scenery folder.
2: This scenery has library dependencies!
Install these libraries into the same folder and alongside the Airport. (X-plane/custom scenery)
