You would have to make your own textures to do that. There is no way to put textures sideways. Well technically you could put them into photoshop and rotate them and then make textures out of those I don't know if that would work as well as you would want tho.

Hi,

don´t know if this would help you, but I use in Anjou (my WWII France island) an addon from WWIIEC addon maker BattlingBitch, which is a metall air strip, I think US and Japanese forces uses them a lot in Pacific area, espeacially on islands.
As this is an addon and no texture you could layout it in any direction. It looks a bit blury on screenshot, but great if you stand in front of this. See the screenshots I attached.
But be aware, AI landing and starting is only working N-S / S-N and E-W / W-E, not SE to NW (best to my knowledge).

Maybe this will help you Posted Image

The easiest way would be doing a road with Airport textures like they have done it in VBS1. the connections would fit beeter togehter.
