FMC and Jet Routes??

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,I ran into a problem (I think) while setting up a flight. Here is the nitty gritty:Route: KDFW DAL7.TXK J42 BKW J147 CSN.OTT5 KBWI I programed by first entering the departure and destination airports. Then I selected DEP/ARR and entered in the pertinant departure and arrival data.On page two of the Route system, I then entered BKW from TXK and cleard the DISCO from BKW to CSN. Then I told the FMC to use J42 from TXK to BKW and J147 from BKW to CSN. I checked the Prog page to see the distance and saw almost 3000nm!!!After looking at the legs pages I saw FUZ, ABI and other J42 waypoints way WEST of TXK were loaded?? I manually cleared them out and everything was fine.It looks to me that the FMC just threw all the J42 waypoints into the route without regard for the entry point (TXK). This did not happen for the J147 portion of the route. Any ideas??Mark

I think a problem like this happens when multiple waypoints have the same name. Not sure how to fix it, besides doing what you did :(
