The DBV Approach is almost like the one in Trabzon, Turkey...When I flew a jet (727) full of passengers into there at night and/or low vis conditions...I always kept in mind one thing...If everything starts to go south...TURN RIGHT!!! Over the Black Sea...Maybe not correct, but if you lose situational awarness...at night, in IMC, Over the sea is better than towards the mountains....

As has been beaten to death here on this thread by many of us "greybeards"...if you're not sure where you are at, IMC or at night being at 2,000' is not the time or place to try to figure it out....
