Thanks for the info and vid link!
Interesting group of characters, these FE folks.
As a retired airline pilot, having flown most of my career to Europe, South America and Asia...
I wonder how these folks explain the Great Circle routing which undoubtedly saves time and fuel. I guess they would argue the shortest distance between 2 points is a straight line, which I would agree with, except when flying above the surface of Earth. Earth isn't "a perfect oblate spheroid". But it isn't flat either looking through my Mark 1 Mod 0 eyeballs/observations.
I guess Boeing "rigged" the compass when flying from North America to Asia to indicate initially flying north then swinging through the westerly to southerly headings after passing Alaska and approaching Russia. That's a lot of "rigging" in my book, even for Boeing, Airbus, Gulfstream, you name the plane.
