Strange ATC in FSX with MD-11

Recommended Posts

Guest stubbornswiss

Greetings!I hope you all don't mind me posting this here. I thought it was appropriate, as I was flying the MD-11, although I am sure the problem is not a/c specific.I was flying from KPDX-KATL, not using SID's or STAR's. No problems all along the route.Approaching KATL, I received clearance for an ILS approach (I don't remember which runway), and started being vectored and descended. It got to the point that I was now flying away from the airport, and I thought the controller would swing me around and bring me back in, as there was considerable traffic in the area (Airline traffic density set at 65%; General aviation traffic density set at 65%).However, I countinued to be vectored away from the airport, and much to my surprise I was eventually told that ATC services were terminated, blah blah blah!!As you can imagine, this is pretty annoying at the end of a flight!Just wondering if anyone else has ever experienced this, with ANY aircraft type, and what might be the cause.As usual, thanks for all the assist.

:-8:-violin:-lol, FS ATC... Apparentely this hasn't been solved in FSX, I don't think there is cure other then using a third party ATC.The way I avoid this bug is by contacting ATC at around 30NM, at the point where you get final vectors to the runway.
