Tobi,What exactly are you trying to do here? What's with that BLACKSWAN fix? That doesn't even comply with the FMC's waypoint naming conventions.

hi,Yes I know. I never knew I was able to enter stuff like that. BLACKSWAN by the way is my username and it was just a word I tried to enter. Could be everything.cheers,tobi

Hi,Maybe I don't understand your question correctly. But I just want to tell PMDG that one can enter stuff like that in the 747 FMC. It's not normal I guess. I was trying to simulate a real 747 flight according to the picture I posted above. Tried out a few things and these pics are the result. They are not faked. I've been flying the 744 from PMDG for a long time and on an awful lot of routes but that happend the first time to me. Maybe you're able to reproduce my kind of "problem".cheers,tobi

It is perfectly normal to enter a waypoint of that nature. The FMS in a real 747 can hold a waypoint of more than 6 characters. How do you think they enter PACOTS and NATA's. So that should answer your question.
