Water airportes for MSFS - 9 old in Scandinavia

Ver 0.5: - Improved exit from Lindaränge to the sea. - Permission obtained for converted aircrafts and cars as static objects. - Scenery sent to flightsim.to, hoping for publication. - Since before: static planes (Ju F13, Do Wal, Ju-52), old cars, buildings, see e.g. Kastrup-Old.

Start from water airport in addon:
- Cold start: '1' in water (dock_GA), or '2' om land
- Rwy-start, engines running!

"Parking brakes" - not for seaplanes!
  The plane moves by engine power and by wind.
  - ActivePause stops the plane. Still functioning are e.g.:
   Start engine with Ctrl-E. Stop with Shift-Ctrl-E.

"Drone -flying" - click 'Ins' for On,Off.
  Move around with keys:  W,S forth,back.  A,D left,right.
   R,F up,down.    Num-4,6 turn left,right.

Some Start Alternatives:
- From land to water
   Sart from land-ramp2. Drive plane into water, pull gear up (G), fly away.
- From water to land
   After water-landing: drive plane to shore, put gear down (G), drive up on land.
- IRL: In real life one often used small wagons and winches.
