Can't find one in Hawaii, Alaska, or Washington. I quite looking after that.

When flying, if a passenger asks you are you can always tell them "near Springfield." If they ask again later tell them, "over Columbus." Let them try to prove you wrong!

I found an article that said that the most common name is Riverside, found in all states except Hawaii, Alaska, Louisiana, and Oklahoma. The runner up was Centerville in 45 states, followed by Fairview (43 states), Franklin (42), Midway (40), Fairfield (39), Pleasant Valley (39), Troy (39), Liberty (38), and Union (38). Springfield isn't even in the top ten (only 35 states have a Springfield).

Mac, in at least Tennessee, it is Greeneville, with a fourth "e".

No joy when I google map Greenville, MD. But I do get a listing of all the doctors in Greenville, NC. <g>

Joe

Seems to be some confusion. This says Donaldson:
http://www.gsabusiness.com/news/47169-faa-tower-closing-could-hurt-business-recruitment?rss=0

This says three in SC: Hilton Head. Grand Strand and Donaldson.

On the FAA site, I downloaded a pdf that had four SC towers:
CRE Grand Strand; FLO Florence, GYH Donaldson; and HXD Hilton Head. Wonder if it's changed.

Scott: May I ask what your source is for Greenville Downtown?
Maybe there's been some changes.


Best,

Dave

Google often ignores that fourth "E" when giving search results.

And I found out if you tell Ashville approach that you want to go home to Greeneville, they will turn you the wrong way.

Well, we would call most any river in the Western USA the "Snake River". Sometimes we were correct.

Regards,

Dux -and I cannot believe that the OSH tower will not be covered during the summer flying season get together.

>>When flying, if a passenger asks you are you can always tell them "near
>>Springfield."

If I recall correctly, Ernest K. Gann's response to that question was to
point to the nearest bunch of lights or buildings and reply, "That is White
Pigeon."
