Have found a way to get a pretty good idea of the destination active
runway while still 100's of mile away.. even while on the departure
field. In the weather menu click on `Local Weather' circular tic (or
whatever it is). Zoom out.. pan over.. and zoom in to your destination
field.. and click on it. The LOCAL weather and wind direction is
indicated. From this info.. you can figure out the active runway
rather easily. Does this make sense?

p.s. that's another reason I'd like to see a WxCad that could set
the local weather (better and easier than MSFS) at a number of
`stations' all along the route, bring up the local weather data for
view, and save a weather set.

Try ActiveSky! It's payware but everyone I've ever spoken to who has used it
says it was money well spent...

David.. thanks -- have been contemplating ActiveSky for a couple of
years. It would have to be ActiveSky wxRE `cause I'm in FS2002.

Here's a quick search (for the doc);

It took around two years before I got to registering FSNav. :)
