    Bob,

    Since Pub. 249 is one of several tabular ways of solving the spherical navigational triangle, I would have to say that it uses a spherical model.

    Subject: [NavList] Pub. 249 and the spherical earth

    Does Pub. 249 take into account earth's non-spherical nature, or does it use a spherical model?
    Thanks,
    Bob
