[pkg-fgfs-crew] Bug#497037: flightgear: unclear where to put airport data files

The file "/usr/share/doc/flightgear/README.Debian" says:
Additional scenery is available at http://www.flightgear.org/.
They should be unpacked into /usr/share/games/FlightGear/Scenery.
This works fine for the regular scenery files. However, the FTP servers
offer a directory called "AirportsOverlay/", which seems to contain
additional airport data; as is, there seems to be a hole in the scenery
around the airports, except for the runways.
It appears that this directory, and the data files therein, are
nowhere mentioned in either the Debian package documentation, or that
on the project website.
Could the README file above be updated, to explain where the airport
files should be unpacked, or how they should be made available to
I am aware of the file "/usr/share/games/FlightGear/Docs/README.scenery",
from the "fgfs-base" package. Experimentation with the "FG_SCENERY"
environment variable does not seem to solve the problem.
