CALVERTON VOR's IDENT

__________________________________   (5 pts)

All that the IDENT button does is supply some vitamins to our radar image on the controller's scope, so that they know we are we! Pretty soon, we should have station passage, which means we've passed overhead of Calverton VOR. Station passage occurs when the 'TO' flips to 'FROM' on the OBI. How many miles will we go outbound on our new radial? _______________14______________ (5 pts)
See? You just keep thinking ahead, just like in a chess game.
