Wacky ILS feathers???

Pro Member First Officer

Have Yall noticed that the ILS feathers on the GPS display can be "missleading." I have tried lining my plane up with these but when I look at the actual airport I would completely miss if I continued on that course. Is this an FS deal? is there a patch to fix it?
Also, I tried landing at Portland Int. in Oregon. When I was partway down the glide slope part of the runway disappeared. Shocked Mad Is this my graphics or is there a patch for this?

Some of the ILS feathers are misaligned, but they are relatively few and far between. Make sure you have engaged vectors to final rather than VOR/NDB approaches, because they will be misaligned Wink

Yes if you dont have the right numbers you will surely miss the runway.

Could be somebody built a CITY on the exact heading as the runway...check out Honolulu Runway 26L.

Those feathers are only...44 degrees off of the centerline.
