Also that footnote 16 on the same page, APBSS: The Operator informed the Investigation that APBSS stands for 'Approach Blacksod South' is very much worthy of further scrutiny.
To my mind that 'Operator's Route Guide' illustrated in the report looks very much like a VFR approach/departure chart. Not an instrument let-down procedure. Any thoughts?
