Summary0000279: Unclear runway assignment after missed approach procedure (airport with 2 runways, runway change requested before)
DescriptionAt some flight with a56rc1 I faced an issue regarding a missed approach:

Here are the steps when approaching Munich (also see the screenshot):
- ATC informed me to expect RW26R
- I requested ATC for RW26L, I got RW26L assigned
- plugin skipped two waypoints and so I requested waypoint ILS as described below, so everything back to normal again
- I did the ILS approach, contacted tower and got clearance to land, everything working fine
- due to bad visibility when reaching minimums I had to request a go around and fly the missed approach
- I got new heading and altitude instructions from ATC, which I complied to, everything fine
- I was flying the missed approach route
- first strange thing: I was requested to descent down to 3000ft (at the ILS approach before it was 4400ft, which is better, considering the airport elevation of 1486ft)
- at the blue point marked in the screenshot below I got following instruction:
turn left heading 267, cleared for ILS approach runway ??? (this time no runway number was provided)

At this time I was a bit confused and flew heading approximately 200 in order to properly intercept the ILS path for RW26L, which I was assigned in the first landing attempt. I intercepted and did the ILS approach and landing successfully.

Following conclusions from my side:
- at the missed approach no runway number is provided by ATC (bug)
- it appears, that ATC was sending me to RW26 (which was initially selected by the plugin, but I requested and got RW26L before), so I would expect RW26L also for the landing after the missed approach procedure
- regardless the runway 26R or 26L, the radius for intercepting the ILS again with a big airliner (in my case a B747-8i) is rather difficult, even at lower airspeeds and landing configuration. Maybe the plugin could consider the aircraft size (using the weight for example) for providing a better missed approach routing, giving more space for turns.
