FS2004 Scenery--Maurice Bishop (TGPY), Grenada, Caribbean. Grenada island is 17 miles south of the southernmost island of the Grenadines, Carriacou. Grenada is 18 miles long and around 8 miles wide, has an estimated population of 110, 000, and produces a very large part of the world's annual nutmeg harvest. The capital, St Georges, is by far the largest town and is at the southern end of the island, with the airport close by. The airport is now called Maurice Bishop, but for some years was called Point Salines. The runway is just over 9, 000 feet long and oriented 10/28. Point Salines replaced Pearl Airport, which is on the east coast 12 miles northeast of St Georges and was difficult to expand; Pearl is now closed but included here as a visual landmark. There are regular international flights from North America and Europe, some of which are seasonal only (Air Canada for instance) and local connecting flights by LIAT and SVG. By Roger Wensley.
