About This File
"Mutiara SIS Al-Jufrie Airport (Indonesian: Bandar Udara Mutiara SIS Al-Jufrie) (IATA: PLW, ICAO: WAFF), formerly Masovu Airport, is an airport near Palu, the capital city of the province of Central Sulawesi on the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia. As the largest airport in Central Sulawesi, Mutiara SIS Al-Jufrie Airport serves as the main port of entry to the city of Palu as well as the surrounding area. The name airport can be separated into two part, "Mutiara" and "SIS Al-Jufrie". "Mutiara" means pearl in Indonesian, while "SIS Al-Jufrie" is an abbreviation of Sayyid Idrus bin Salim Al-Jufri, an Arab-Indonesian religious figure and an Indonesian National Hero from Central Sulawesi. He was a propagator of Islam in Central Sulawesi until his death in Palu in 1969. SIS Aljufri is also a religious figure and founder of the religious organization Alkhairaat that grew and developed rapidly in eastern Indonesia." - Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutiara_SIS_Al-Jufrie_Airport)
This had been originally a Gateway airport I did back in 2018 to honor the victims of the 2018 Sulawesi earthquake & tsunami. It was made with the combination of configurations before and after the earthquake happened. I actually upgraded the airport over time myself with Autogate and subsequently SAM jetways, but I haven't got the chance to share it to any X-Plane downloading platform.
I intended to just upload the last upgrade I did to the airport with SAM jetways and all, but in all of a sudden I figure out this should be a chance for me to try and make custom runways with @pyreegue's ALES Developer Library. Turns out it's pretty much an interesting process to deal with and I have more flexibility in the design of the airport itself with it. So I guess it's time for me to revamp the airport with custom runways and update the airport's layout to the latest standards.
One interesting note to find is that the runway has been moved at least 200 meters towards the side of Runway 15. It's probably due to the runway's proximity to the Petobo Soil Liquefaction event area, which was regarded as one of the biggest soil liquefaction events in history, as the site itself was located about 600 meters from the old end of Runway 33. And the fact that the earthquake in 2018 also produced cracks up to 500 meters in length on the runway itself.
