Same runway, but this one was a little below my usual approach angle.

And this one's for the competition:

What it is, is pretty obvious.

Which one is it?



The same one, from another angle.

I think its a new-fangle VOR station!

I've only seen two of them - one at Alice (I think!) and the other at Coffs (definitely!).

I wonder why the equator is "N"... 'spose it is the same reason the ATIS at LHR says "MINUS" when the temp is zero....! "temp minus zero" (only the Poms!)

Cos it's a Yank built contraption!

What happens when you get to 180E/W or better still N/S 00 E/W180 ?



Here's a test of the new PPRuNe function.

No prizes for guessing where, what in should be pretty easy also.
