ENLI Runway "14"

to the developers of Flightgear!

I'm not sure where to post this, but here goes...

I recently took a flight to the flightstrip ENLI in Norway. Can't remember the name. Either way I was having real difficulty lining up on runway 14. I tried multiple times but just couldn't line up myself with the glideslope. So, I went manual and finally got on the strip which was to my amazement actually pointing 131! Now of course the runway stated on the tarmac itself "14" so the runway markings and GPS signals are indeed correct. I'm guessing the model just wasn't placed right in the programming? I will also state I am using Flightier 2017.3.1, so maybe its been updated since then?

Just thought i'd let you know :)

according to the apt.dat, yes, this is correct... runway 14 is aligned on 131... its opposite, RWY32, is aligned 311...

here's runway information from skyvector...

"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."

:shock: ...wow, okay. that threw me off a tad. I always believed that runways were always pointed in the direction of their numeric name, or at least very close to it. Please tell me I'm right?! :oops:

i always check the plates and see what they say... sometimes the number may be changed but not the angle...
