As long as the reference point is somewhere on the airport grounds I don't think that's the problem. You could try moving it closer to the center of the airport if it is out at the edge. It should actually be at the center of the runway that this overlay uses.Question: are you waiting at least 20 minutes before making this observation? Aircraft are placed at their cruising altitude when an airport is loaded, no matter how close they are to the airport. The aircraft arriving within less than 20 minutes often don't have time to descend to the airport, and go missed. Check after that amount of time (you can use 4x speed to get through the 20 min faster - the key sequence is R++. R-- to get back to 1x).Hope this helps,-- Tom GibsonCalifornia Classic Propliners: http://www.calclassic.com/Cal Classic Alco Page: http://www.calclassic.com/alco/Freeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.com/ San Diego Model RR Museum: http://www.sdmodelrailroadm.com/Drop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___

I'm aware of the problem with the aircraft being at their cruise altitude when beginning,but I think I found the problem,but no soluation though:mostlyLFPG uses its westerly configuration as westerly winds dominate (26R for TO,26L for landing,27L for TO landing.Problem is most arrival aircraft will come from the east so they'll be vectored almost straight in which means less time to descend properly.I set up some easterly winds and everything went just fine.so,now I found the problem,but I'm afraid there's no solution to this?anyway thanks for the helpSeba
