I don't mean the official release (although there where appropriate) so
much as the downloadable scenery available at e.g.
http://www.flightgear.org/Downloads/scenery.html . . .in other words,
just as we have radio towers decorating the landscape, having cooling
towers and might be good as well; and just as we have control towers
and windsocks at airports, having checkerboarded buildings at the
airport navaids locations might also look very nice.  Yes, it's true
that the stuff can (with some effort if you wanna do it globally) be
downloaded and installed; but so could be the radio towers and the control
towers and the windsocks and so forth.  If we know that they're present,
and we know their locations, and we have models for them, and it doesn't
consume a lot of disk space to include them or bandwidth to download
them, why not include them?
