|Quoting CharlesMD (Thread starter):|
I have been following several flights I am supposed to take, i.e. DFW-California and noticed that today's routings have a southerly deviation to the intersection of Texas and New Mexico (?) rather than the direct routing.
Does anyone know why this is? I was flying SFO-DFW yesterday and the turbulence was horrific-- perhaps this could be why??
|Quoting CharlesMD (Reply 3):|
When you're actually flying the route how do you keep track of what the path is (if you aren't the pilot??)
|Quoting OPNLguy (Reply 4):|
They seldom travel a straight-line from DFW to SAN/LAX/ONT due to restricted area 5107 (R-5107
|Quoting Aaway (Reply 1):|
On occasion, the routing from over the Phoenix area is to TCS (Truth or Consequences), thence LBB, thence SPS, thence DFW.
