    Regarding fix bearings
    From: NavList

    Regarding fix bearings: A convenient practice of taking two bearings at one 
    landmark is to take the first bearing at 45 deg, then second bearing is taken 
    off beam (90 deg).  In this case distance off beam is equal distance 
    traveled.
     There are also few so-called "magic" angles which play the same trick: upon 
    using them distance travelled is equal distance off.
    
    I wrote a formula which permits for the first bearing chose any angle you want 
    and then calculate the angle for the second bearing which, as a result, 
    equals distance travelled to distance off.
    
    I think it gives some flexibility in bearing taking and especially in calculating distance off.
