sim-wings Updates Munich International Airport for MSFS

sim-wings recently updated its rendition of Munich International Airport (EDDM) for Microsoft Flight Simulator, addressing a wide list of bugs and making many enhancements, keeping the scenery up to date with its real-world counterpart.

It serves Munich and Upper Bavaria with a yearly average of 47.9 million passengers. 

It opened in 1992, replacing Munich-Riem Airport, which served Munich from 1939 to 1992. It was deemed hard to expand because of the growing number of inhabitants around its proximity, leading to the desire to move the airport to a completely different location.

Construction work started in 1980 in the small village of Franzheim, whose 400 inhabitants were moved elsewhere. Operations began on 17 May 1992, with Riem closing the night before.

It's one of Lufthansa's main hubs, with a comprehensive route network. Condor, Eurowings, Eurowings Discover, and TUIfly Deutschland also base themselves at the airport.

Update 2.2.0 includes many corrected taxiway signs, removal of floating objects, Terminal 2 improvements (improved Lufthansa sign, for example), the addition of a meteorology station near RWY 26L, jetway connection tweaks, and much more. The complete changelog follows below:
