We were flying into Birmingham, Alabama at about 2:00am on a Sunday morning.  The sky was clear with great visibility.  Birmingham has an ILS to runway 6, and the final approach fix is MCDEN.  After checking in with Birmingham Approach, we were told to fly "direct to MCDEN for the McVisual approach."
