So this happened to me earlier today:
I was approaching OMDB. The ATC gave me an assigned heading and altitude which I followed. 5 minutes later, I was a couple miles away from crashing into mountains and I started requesting an altitude change to avoid the mountains. The ATC gave me a heading change but I was still on a collision course with some mountains. This happened on the expert server by the way.
I’d like to know, has something similar happened to one of you guys?
