Dieter Magnet I'm not sure what happened on this approach?
Deon Schlebusch Hi Dieter, I don't know why did SmartCARS not direct me to the runway, it took me over the airport and then I notice that it was not routing me back so I had to manually turn around and come back for landing.
Dieter Magnet Hi Deon, that is a rookie mistake (not knowing where the runway is) and not something we expect from a Senior Flight Captain. Also I can't understand how you were initially on approach for Rwy 3L and then landed on Rwy 21L. I think you'll have to redo this flight.
Deon Schlebusch Dieter, I did not once say I don't know where the runway was, that is a scary statement to make!!! My mistake not SmartCARS but fsx was taking me over the airport, don't know how you know the approach is RWY 3L because my FSX did not direct me to that runway. As I flew over the airport leaving FSX to direct me, and as I mentioned I then realized that FSX is not going for a runway but I was just flying, I then turned around and went for RWY 21L with FSX still not directing me to a runway but complaining me descending for an approach!!!
