X-Plane 9.70+ Scenery--NZAP Taupo Airport. Taupo Airport is a small airport 8 km to the south of Taupo township on the eastern shores of Lake Taupo, New Zealand. This is a conversion of the Taupo_NZAP scenery by Lawrie Roache originally made for MSFS (TAUPO_AIRPORT_NZAP.ZIP). Lawrie has given permission to upload this conversion and others from his collection of freeware airports and airfields. The conversion is not 100% perfect, but overall it looks really good and is a vast improvement on the default. Important: in "Rendering" options UNTICK "runways always follow contours".
