In the radiotelephony book, I met a conversation as follow: Controller: American fifteen seventy -two, you're five miles from MISTR. Cross MISTR at or above 3500,cleared for VOR runway 15 approach. Pilot: OK we'll uh, we're cleared for the approach. And we'll corss MISTR at or above 3500, American fifteen seventy-two. The question is: What does MISTR stand for and what is it ?
No, it's real and current. It's a fix on the VOR approach into RWY15 at KBDL, Windsor Locks/Bradley International, Connecticut. This seems to fit in with the extract from the book. Looking at the approach plate, I can't help but think that whoever devised the names of the fixes was a Matt Dillon/Gunsmoke fan and, therefore of a certain age. The next fix on the approach is called DILLN. Memories of Denis Weaver, as Chester, limping up behind Matt Dillon and calling out "Mister Dillon."
