Well the way I read the chart, is the area outlined in purple is the OUTLAW MOA. It's not on the chart attached in this thread, but I have a Phoenix Sectional, and it says "OUTLAW MOA EXTENSIVE MILITARY TRAINING ACTIVITY CONTACT ALBUQUERQUE CENTER ON 125.4 FOR ACTIVITY STATUS".
The area that is restricted is the area in outlined in blue at the southwest corner of the OUTLAW MOA.
R-2310A, B, and C. I'm thinking it's this area that approach was trying to keep Alaska 630 out of.
But yes, rekno13, if he had turned left insted of right (North insted of South), he would have missed the restricted area. He could have turned left, headed north of Appache Junction, turned left again to 260 degrees and rolled out on runway heading and had a nice, long, straight-in approach. He was asking for the left turn after being turned to 160. If he turned left and headed north, then he would have wound up in the restricted area. He kept asking for left turns when he could only go right, but he had weather to his right.
