Most commercial airliners, whose existance is know to the public, cannot make 90 degree turns.The FMC and autopilot can probably make the turn though, everytime, better than a humOn.

I saw this once on one of my early flights, but I assumed I had programmed a too-sharp angle into the FMC. In my case the the direction of flight seemed to branch - straight ahead to a dead-end at the waypoint, or a right hand turn to the next waypoint on the route. The plane wanted to go straight ahead, so I reprogrammed the FMC to go direct to waypoint No. 2.Could be some bug in the FMC logic?Graeme
