Earlier today, I decided to fly out of the brand new 3D McMurdo Station Ice Runway (NZIR) using a Boeing 777-200ER, but a strange situation happened.
First of all, have to say that I found odd that the runways and apron area are so far away (about 6.5 NM) from the ‘blue point’ that indicates the airfield location.
When I was trying to takeoff on 11, the real issue happened: as I reached speed over 35 knots, I got two speed warnings (?!), even though I was inside runway area.
Device: iPhone 11 Pro Max
Operating system: iOS 15.6
In order to avoid a violation, I immediately ended the session and decided to fly out of a different airport. 😔
I’ve flown to other airfields in Antarctica [like Troll (AT27) and Rothera (EGAR)] and this has never happened to me.
Would be this a glitch - or a bug - for that airfield specifically?
Has anyone gone through something like this?
Safe flights! ✈️
