By the time that they had reached mainland UK, they should have been nothing but a 'keep an eye on'

As an aside, just flying, for the umpteenth time, EGHU-EGTP via GITUS( to avoid the MATZ zone).

Cessna 172 heading 246 approx 12.4 nm out, at 3000ft, I hit a black hole CTDT.

I have tried 'wndowed mode'and 'full screen' with and without the Horizon scenery. Every time FS X bombs out.

I will have another go, flying South of the MATZ. But that will bring me to runway 27, instead of 09 from the sea.

One other, with Horizon scenery on, West off the coast at EGTP, is a large expanse of land, several miles out to sea, with various ships on it. Turn off the Horizon Photo scenery and the sea is now at the bottom of the cliffs, where it should be. And the ships are sailing along! Anyone else seeing this?? It is not the St Mawgan scenery doing it.

It is the 2.4 Photo scenery causing it. The 1.2 is ok.

I am using the Horizon V1.0 with all the updates,and night lighting off.

"A bit more on the ball". sURELY YOU JEST!

Bones will know but I doubt a real life controller would have to handle
that volume single handed? Particularly over more than two hours without
a break.

It was a good night for me too at Leeds.

4 UKV inbounds + a UKV trainer, 2 JHB inbound and one out.

Watching that steady stream of traffic out of Dublin for most of the
evening was good too. The only crevat I had, was that London was a bit
slow in dropping and passing over traffic to me, had to get a couple to
do orbits to get them down, to slot into downwind. Handoffs where within
20 miles.

Understanderble, with the traffic he was handling. But as the Dublin
traffic was crossing just south of Leeds! he should have been a bit more
on the ball.

I will try to log onto Leeds a bit more often, but with Christmas coming
up, and the problems with a distant relative, it is going to be a case
of as and when.
