Phoenix in China??

Hi guys.
In Route Manager established following route: KNPA to KDFW to ZJSY 08. The route entry was correct; but at KDFW, it turned North on a great circle route
ending in the vicinity of SYX, the Sanya VOR SW of Hong Kong. The Route Manager was not mistaken, because when I magnified the map, there it was:
ZJSY Phoenix runway 08. Bit of a long flight. :? :?

i don't understand the problem... you seem to have set a route from

KNPA Pensacola Naval Air Station/Forrest Sherman Field, Pensacola, Florida, USA
to
KDFW Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, USA
to
ZJSY Sanya Phoenix International Airport. Tianya District, Sanya, China

and are surprised to end in China? were you expecting to land at KPHX, Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, Phoenix, Arizona, USA? the first giveaway would have been the final airport not starting with 'K' ;)
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."
