Wow, that's way off base, but you were the one who spoke it into existence.
If that's all you can derive from these posts, great. I'm only using "her" and "she" because the controller was in fact a female, but from now on to avoid any confusion and misplaced judgements, I shall refer to the controller as "the controller."
Do you have a better explanation for how you can fault a controller for giving a 180 heading request and the crew continuing to fly north?
What parts of my last few replies don't at least plausibly explain it? EVA seems to be doing exactly what the controller is asking: they turned left, then they started to turn right, then they started to turn left again, then they used their discretion and climbed and turned southbound. That covers pretty much all the bases here for "why did they fly north?" The gaps in between? Again, speculating, but my observations are that:
1) the simulation playback in the YT video has considerable lag and does not show the instantaneous changes in the aircraft's flying
2) it takes a measurable amount of time for an aircraft of that size and at that speed to reverse a turn
3) the situation became increasingly confusing to the crew after multiple conflicting instructions were given with unnecessary admonishments.
And I'll say it again just to be clear, this is not meant to absolve them completely of blame, just explain their actions.
You keep saying that they never turned to 180. That's correct; it appears that there was no way they could have ever completed that turn to the left as instructed in the time it took to be issued the second instruction to turn right. Likewise, it is for this same reason that they never turned to 270. Is that not something you agree with, and why?
Tiny, unreadable text leaves ample room for interpretation.
