That's an old, well known bug. If you position fgfs exactly on the tile boundaries
(*integer* lon/lat), the intersection code somehow falls through between the
tiles. Try this:

$ ./fgfs --lat=87.001 --long=28.001 --altitude=30000 ^^^^ ^^^^

Thanks - this worked a treat. I'm now flying at 32000 feet over the breathtaking, er, sea. Oops - looks like I picked the wrong tile set :)

I wasn't sure if you figured this out:

Lat=87 and Long=28  would be a polar location, somewhere north of Murmansk.

Lat =28  and Long=87  is on the China/Nepal border
