    Ford waypoint ?

    Hi,

    A JTAC give me FORD as IP and egress point (see screenshot), but I can't find it on the map or the ME or on google earth with .kmz.

    I am in a foreign country at the moment and cannot check with the A-10c CDU to have coordinates.

    Is it a forgotten point ?

    Thanks,
    Vincent

    On what mission is that?
    The CDU should have it, if the mission designer included it on the map.

    But there’s more not making sense:
    170 NM from IP to target.
    From the IP (Ford) to the target, you have to fly heading 250. But in the egress, Ford is suddenly to the North, and not East like one would expect. Unless there are 2 points named Ford, but that also wouldn’t make sense.

    In fact, I called the JTAC shortly after take-off just to have the message and make a screenshot. The holding point to call the JTAC is around 12nm from the target, but the message is similar.

    The question is : is the point FORD exist somewhere ?

    Edit : I did not created any point on the ME, only the route.

    If you made the mission, and you did not create the Ford IP, then No, the point is not there.
    No idea where the JTAC gets it from, never use them.
