I'm not sure I what you mean whenyou talk of a right turn istead of a left.Normal traffic is left turns for one runway or the left of two runways, right turns for the right runway.To deviate from normal traffic requires clearance to do so, since there might be right-runway traffic (which is probably not on your frequency nor being controlled by your controller.This is not Iowa or Nebraska where you can go shooting off the off-ramp from the left lane.
I enjoy your essays very much. However, in fairness to the heroic pilot (and crew) of Flight 1549, I must point out an error in the spelling of his name:Sullengerber should be SullenbergerHe probably wouldn't be upset by his name being misspelled, but if you can correct it, that would be a good thing. ~~ Thanks, Marilyn
Hi Larry,Of course, what you say is correct. I could have phrased it a bit better to indicate that the turn could have been to the right due to procedure.Thanks, Marilyn. It's all fixed.
Jack, I'm sorry to have to post again, but on my computer screen I'm reading "Sullenberber", so you still have superhero pilot Chesley Sullenberger's name wrong. Please correct this before he sees it.G'day.Marilyn
