Using FTX/Orbx scenery linked to Google.earth, pilots can get complete, preflight data with the click of a mouse.
By clicking on any airport shown within the FTX Area, one gets a dropdown window with information that can then be copied&pasted into other media.
Very handy for those pilots particularly interested in ILS and other navaid info.
Here's relative Anchorage Stevens Airport numbers copy&pasted from Google.earth

PANC
Runways (len= length)
06R len=10871ft hdg=090 asphalt
ILS=IANC CAT III ILS 06R 111.300 27nm
24L len=10871ft hdg=270 asphalt
06L len=10572ft hdg=090 asphalt
ILS=ITGN ILS 06L 109.900 27nm
24R len=10572ft hdg=270 asphalt
14 len=11555ft hdg=165 asphalt

Quite amazing really! Rolling Eyes
or . . . simply use FSX Map view or use Simplates Crying or Very sad
