Airport Project CTD with SKD 15.0

Because of limited time and also stability after SU5 with the scenery editor I have not tried to work on my airport project for a couple of months. My project was initially designed beginning almost a year ago just as a learning project for the SDK. It was working in the sim after SU5 but I did not add anything or work on it. I just checked it at that time to make sure it was working.

Yesterday I downloaded SDK 15.0 and tried opening my airport project to continue working on it. Every time I load the sim after building the package the sim crashes to desktop as soon as the aircraft loads into the airport. I cannot even get to the point where I can try and load into the scenery editor.

I am at a loss as to what the problem is here. I have not worked on anything or made any changes in 2 months and yet now I can't even load the project to test or continue working on it.

The Windows Event Viewer shows the following error:

As a further update on this I tried spawning into one of my airport parking spots and it worked just fine. When I try to spawn on the runway that's when it crashes. I saw a thread on FSDeveloper site about having a Primary and Secondary Runway start or you would experience crashes after SU6. However my airport already has both a primary and secondary runway start assigned. It seems though that something with the runway start or runway is the culprit so I will keep investigating since I am able to spawn into parking ok and load my project in the editor from there.

I deleted my runway starts and created new ones and I thought that it was fixed. However after multiple times trying the only way I can get into the editor or into my airport is to spawn into a parking spot. When I spawn on the runway the game crashes. I have no errors in the compiler for my project and I can't see where anything is wrong. It just CTD every time I spawn in on the runway. The only way for me to continue working on this project is from a parking spot but then I don't know what else is wrong and if I am going to be doing more work just for more problems....ugh.....
