Bridges, FSX

TODO: Update for FSX

Many of the greatest bridges are part of the default scenery. While it is possible to fly under the bridges, the aircraft will crash when trying to land on them. Remember to install the FS9.1 update because it contains important updates of bridges.

The following table lists the largest bridges (in span) of the world and where to find them.

Comments:

25th April bridge, very near of LPPT, runway 3 direction. (Lisbon airport, Portugal), over Tagus river, take a look too!
Have a look at the Forth Bridge, next to Edinburgh, Scotland. Select Edinburgh (EGPH), the bridge is visible from the runway (it's only about 3 miles away).
Anyone know why the Sunshine Skyway Bridge over Tampa Bay is missing?
FSX has the two bridges for Lisbon, 25 April and, to the east, the newer 17 km Vasco da Gama. Take off at LPPT rwys 03 21 (or LPCS for less traffic) and head S, meet the 25 April one, then head roughly East to see the loger one. The northern (Lisbon side) margin of the Tagus is full of buildings and historical references.
Another impressive bridge is the Chesapeake Bay Bridge in Maryland. Fly out of Annapolis and head east to the Chesapeake Bay. When you get there, to your left will be the bay bridge. Wish the CBBT (Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel) in Northampton, VA, were so impressive in FSX.
The new Arthur Ravenel Bridge in South Carolina is the longest cable supported bridge in the world, and is missing from FSX. A similar bridge, the Boston Bay bridge, also a long cable supported bridge is missing, both are quite modernistic and beautiful. Has anyone done any mods for FSX?
Fly upside down under the bridge and then pull up.
I used to do that with an F-16.
I dont know if your refering to main bridges but i have landed on many bridges with cessnas and helicopters
>Fly upside down under the bridge and then pull up.
>I used to do that with an F-16.

hmm, if you were upside down and you pulled up, you would be fish food.
The Forth road and rail bridges in Scotland are in FSX. Fly North from Edinburgh (EGPH) The Red one is the Forth Rail Bridge and the Greyish one is the Forth Road Bridge
autogen bridges are landable
special bridges are not
In Minneapolis, MN, USA along the Mississippi River, all of the bridges are present and quite accurate.
in FSX if you have a addon cars you can drive on bridges but not all of them
Mackinac Bridge is so awesome!

i dont know who told you that but they were lying
You said that if you try to land on the bridges, you will crash. What about if you download a car (or truck, jeep, ect.) and drove it to the bridge? What would happen then?

"i dont know who told you that but they were lying"

This can only be correct if you are talking about cable supported bridges as a whole, because there are 2 catagories: Cable stayed bridges, and suspension bridges, cable stayed is certainly longer than suspension though, and the boston Big dig bridge is fairly long, over 5000ft for sure, but thats a different category from suspension...
To reach the Bay Bridge, just take off from Bay Bridge airport and head west.
i think that list should include the sydney harbour bridge. its the biggest steel arch bridge in the world
the tay road bridge is to the left if you tske off from dundee in scotland i live in tayport
soz ment takeoff
Have fun building planes, etc, and also fly them! The game is called ROBLOX.com
