Reason for closing:  Bug in NewGRF
Additional comments about closing:  Newgrf aircraft range is a bug, and should be avoided by set authors, unless they want to handle the feature requests relating to them in OpenTTD.

Flyspray clean up, no solution to this, so closing. Thanks Milsa for reporting.

Some airplanes has fuel to max. flying distance. Any airports is too far for these planes. I don't see distances between airports in created order. I must create order and check it (red color on airport) and I must change the airplane if needed and check it again. I see flying distance in plane's technical parameters only.

If I see the distance in order I select new plane by this distance. Now I must estimate new plane.

NewGRF authors have many options available to them. Not all are wise. This is a case of an unwisely designed newgrf. This problem can be solved by choosing another NewGRF. Although this may seem ruthless, it's actually the best way to get your problem solved and have more fun playing the game :)

I think that it is real that small airplane has radius 300 km and large plane has radius 1024 km.

I think that this OpenTTD cleaning is very strict but it is your decision. I accept it therefore.
