Hi,

 

The other day I did several very short flights in the 777, of around 20 minutes each.

 

I left the aircraft sat on the ramp for a couple of hours after the second flight (I had been familiarizing myself with the operation of RNAV approaches).

 

I came to do a 3rd flight, but when I tried to enter the departure airport (EGKK), instead of it entering in LSK2L, it caused the page title "RTE1" to be replaced with "@@@@@;3#". It didn't accept the departure airport, either (still showed boxes). It wouldn't accept any airport as departure, and the DEP/ARR page was also blank, comesurate with not having a departure airport.

 

I completely de-powered the aircraft, and powered it up again (I did NOT restart FS), and it seemed to clear it, but it was very odd. If it occurs again I'll be sure to get a screenshot.

 

I flew the 3rd flight uneventfully.

 

Best regards,

Robin.

Maybe the IRS needs recycling between flights. A real pilot posted on here that is what they do. I cannot link it for you, but he created a PDF about it.
