The Elba scenery project aims to improve the island scenery. The project's base is the current TerraSync scenery, with a few buildings on the airport LIRJ.

Elba is a beautiful island in the west of Italy, close to the northern end of Corse.

There is one airport on the island, the Elba Island Airport (LIRJ), in FlightGear called Marina Di Campo, which is the name of the city nearby.


Torre di San Giovanni
