Birmingham Airport (EGBB), previously known as Elmdon Airport, opened in 1939 with its first flights being to and from Glasgow, Liverpool and Croydon. 
During the second World War, this airport was used as a Royal Airforce Training site until 1949 when British Airways was the first to begin commercial services again to destinations such as Amsterdam, Zurich, Palma and Barcelona.

Currently, EGBB is the seventh busiest airport in the United Kingdom, with it previously being the home to FlyBe who recently went into administration.
The airport boasts a unique runway with multiple dips and humps, which makes watching an Emirates A380 rolling down the runway and amazing sight!

Review by Okay but just okay.

I purchased this airport addon knowing it was not yet completed. The price is about right for what is offered.
Pros:
+ Gives a better representation of Birmingham than the default sim airport with buildings and main objects in their correct place.
+ Runway slope looks accurate.
+ Overall feeling of the airport is captured well.

Cons:
- Buildings are what I would describe as FSX quality. No modern texturing or material techniques used.
- Some very boxy objects. A lack of finesse.

Worth the price if you need EGBB in your sim right now, as I did. I hope this addon evolves into a higher quality scenery.

Not very good.

Missing a lot of surrounding buildings such as hotels etc and what is there, is not to the standard you expect for MSFS these days.

I really hope someone else makes a version of BHX or the this developer gives it significant update.
