"LIne up and wait" bug


Recommended Posts

Just came across an odd bug when I accidentally issued the "line up and wait" command to an aircraft that was already taking off (intended to issue it to the next aircraft in line for departure).  I issued the command just as the aircraft began to rotate, and the aircraft came to an immediate stop with its nose still in the air.  The aircraft just sat there like this and did not move further.  Also, discovered that if I issue the"cleared for takeoff" command after this happens then the plane will miraculously continue its takeoff as if nothing happened.  Very strange to see, and even a little amusing :-)

The incident happened at KJFK with Real Traffic installed.  See screenshot below, where I issued the command to FDX 3616 (an MD-11) departing on 4L, just before it crossed runway 31R, almost to the end of the runway.  As described, the aircraft was in the process of rotating, and it just froze.  I tried this with several different aircraft, with the same result.  I did not try it on other runways, or at other airports.
