Army Guard navigation (g).

Think I've related the story of being on duty to fly the one star one weekend. No heads up on where. I had maps from Charlotte area east( usually, they headed to Raliegh where state HQ was). He got in and wanted to go to HQ in Asheville. Flew west until I could tune in an Asheville A.M. station. When closer, called approach and asked for vectors to Guard HQ. Sounded like they were used to it (g).

Best,

Dave

Mac,
>>>which is true of no other town name<<<

A looong time ago, on a game show (Art Linkletter?), someone was asked to name 5 states with the town of Madison. Contestant named 4. He then said there is a Madison in every state of the union.

so, maybe 2 towns..?
;-)

nothing clever to say right now...

Whenever a passenger asks me where we are, I say "Greenville". Can't be far off.

Larry -

>>Can't find one in Hawaii, Alaska, or Washington<<

Upon further investigation, I stand by my statement that I heard it somewhere.

But, given its inaccuracy, I take back the part about probably hearing it here. <g>

Listen to them everyday. Nobody working there when you were there. I asked them.

Yeah, that was a few years ago -- maybe 1946, I think.

Just went in and out of HDN (Steamboat, CO) which has no tower, but quite a mix of jets and props.

I was more concerned about the migratory geese and 13K MSA.

On the plus side, I bet we'll all manage taxi in/out just fine without the usual micromanagement.

A couple of years ago, Paul Berge of AvWeb invited responses to the survey question: "What's the dumbest thing you've heard on CTAF?" He got about a 100 responses. http://www.avweb.com/news/skywrite/dumbest_ctaf_phraseology_205405-1.html?type=pf I hope the phraseology we'll hear at the newly uncontrolled, I mean, non-towered airports is short and sweet. I forgot we're supposed to stop using that term in favor of non-towered. I think someone thought "uncontrolled" suggested chaos.

Sometimes I use "pilot-controlled" with folks not familiar.
