"Flying Cow Farm" airport (Lat. 39.15.50 N Long. 77.39.15 W).

Getting there can also be quite an interesting experience.

Like the arrival fixes around Tampa, in order, are BRNUM, BALEY, BGTOP, GIRLI, SHOWW.

or

Portsmouth, NH: RNAV Rwy 16 Approach fixes: ITAWT ITAWA PUDYE TTATT

Waypoints, not airfields, but amusing nonetheless .....

The Instrument Approach Procedure for Portsmouth, New Hampshire has some unusual waypoint names.
In order, they are:
ITAWT
ITAWA
PUDYE
TTATT
Make sure no-one's listening (or they'll think you've gone mad) and read them out loud as quickly as you can.
The 'Missed Approach' fix is: IDEED ! ;)

Near Boston are DRUNK, BOSOX, and DREEM. (Bosox being the local name for the Boston Red Sox baseball team.)
I've been told there are waypoints in Vermont named HAMMM, BURGR, FRYYS, but I can't confirm that one.

(Edit)
Sorry - Just noticed Capt KAOS posted the first one while I was trying to find out if the Vermont names are true.

Heard about an intersection called VPOOP, dunno where it is?

PS
Fl.L. I think they call it the "tweety bird approach."?

I think it's 'Tweety Pie' approach - song from the Sylvester and Tweety Pie cartoons.

VPOOP is in Maryland.

Wish I could remember things that matter as well as I remember trivia. :D

Sticking with the ICAO theme, am I right in thinking that Little Rock Arkansas (home to Ex President Clinton) enjoys the code KLIT?

Rather apt one feels

Well, it is a country, not a kingdom isn't it Chips!?

I find I can't say Regina without smirking!

Jerricho,

Why do you need to say Regina???

Or are you getting ready for the "Regina vs Jerricho" case after the MIL has disappeared??

Surely Cockermouth has to be in the running!

Cockermouth Airfield, in Cumbria, England is at 543751N 032210W. That was a bit of a mouthfull.............

DM, as I am soon to move to the wilds of Manitoba, it won't be that far away, and I can't wait to see a west bound Shorts to slip into Regina!!!

Has anyone here ever flown from Sleap to Little Snoring, or vice versa? How great would that be to have in your log book? That's my aim this summer. :ok:
