If you have one plane at CAB surface low and a second plane at CAB low, how do you depict this situation on the table?

I use 12-siders next to the planes to indicate altitude, low to high. Doesn't look beautiful but damn if it's not easy to understand. I use eight-siders to mark speed since I only have Jet Age.

I do something similar.

I use 6 TALs per CAB and use d6 to show the TAL.

If you set a base height in TALs then all heights can be above that.

Thanks for the simple but efficient way of doing it.

We slide the color markers up toward the top of the stand to show the plane at the "higher" level, and keep the marker low when it is at the lower level. Works great.

The color marker that comes with the flight stand.
