I was only asking because I saw in "Cast Away" that one of the jumpseating pilots had plotted out their position on a sectional (I know that no one would have taken the time to plot out a position anymore).
I was also wondering because my instructor said it's always a good idea to have a sectional with you whenever you're under instruments for better situational awareness. This would include terrain, towers, and other land-based objects. The enroute maps don't show these things. What they do show is MOCAs, MEAs, and other such information; those are all just numbers. The sectionals show topographical information, which is extemely useful (I've found).
Back to my original question and to retort to my "enemies" (for lack of a better word)...
I asked the original question because it was a trivia question in my weekly airport newsletter.
I have never claimed to be an "expert" and I hardly am. I have said things that I regret saying on this forum, but I've said them and I offer no appologies for saying them because they're my opinion and I will stick those things. Many may not agree with me, but such is life. I do however take full responsibility for it.
Now... at least I put my name down and my full personal information as I don't attempt to 'hide' behind a username on an anonymous internet bulletin board. While I could, I believe this to be a cowardly act.
Please if you're going to bash me for no good reason, sign your name so I can address you formally.
