PRACTICE ILS RWY28 (CLASS C AIRPORT): WEATHER VFR; WHILE ON FINAL, REQUESTED LANDING RWY25. ATC RESPONSE WAS, "CONTINUE AND CIRCLE TO LAND RWY25". WAS THIS AN ADEQUATE RESPONSE PHRASEOLOGY???? FOR ME, THE DOGLEG LEFT ON SHORT FINAL OR ANYWHERE ON FINAL WAS NO PROBLEM LANDING "STRAIGHT AT Macedonian Airlines (Greece)">IN" RWY25. SHOULD ATC HAVE GIVEN MORE EXPLICIT INSTRUCTIONS OTHER THAN "CIRCLE TO LAND RWY25". SEEMS TO ME A PILOT MAY HAVE MISCONTRUED THIS CLEARANCE (WITHOUT EXPLICIT MANEUVER INSTRUCTIONS) TO LEVEL OFF AT PATTERN ALTITUDE OR MDA FOR LOC RWY 28 AND POSSIBLY MANEUVER ON HIS OWN AT Macedonian Airlines (Greece)">IN A COMPLEX CIRCLING MANEUVER TO RWY25.
RWY 25 IS WITHIN 30 DEGREES OF RWY 28 IF THIS IS MEANINGFUL!!! THANK YOU!!!!
ps--------when this posting appears-----there will be a blurb about macedonian airlines, etc, in greece. disregard that sentence, as my query had to do with an occurance at KROC---------ny!!
