When I checked Towair calculated the airport from the end of the runway
closest to me.
I looked up my lat/lon on google earth, plugged that into Towair and it gave
me the distance from my qth to the end of the runway closest to me, not to
the center of the airport.
Towair gave me two distances as the airport also has a crossing runway as
well as the main runway. Again it gave the distance from the closest end of
the crossing runway to me.
I checked the lat/lon positions with google earth of the airport positions
that towair said were at the airport. They were indeed the lat/lon positions
at the closest ends of the two runways.
