Separate names with a comma.

Ted and I found those one day... into MMU
Should I be worried if ATC clears me "direct to Paradise" ... ?
I've been there many times........ believe me, it ain't even close to that......
Hmmm... aren’t all waypoint names unique?
It is if you like heat, smog, and the odor of dairy cows.
are the fix names on the approach to 2W5 They commemorate Beulah Crawford, Jack Crawford and Gilbert Bauserman the late owners of the airport.
Yeah, and you can even smell the cows at pattern altitude.......
My favorites have always been BARBQ, SPICY, SMOKE, RIBBS and BRSKT on the ILS RWY 1R approach at MCI...
(ok, BRSKT is on another approach, but the rest are on ILS 1R)
Not too far from Paradise is LIMBO, an off-shore fix out by LAX.
Before the switch to unique five-letter names, many of the VHF intersections offshore around LAX were named for marine creatures. LIMBO was "Ling" (as in the type of cod), DOYLE was "Dolphin", INISH was "Kingfish", ALBAS was "Albacore", and so on.
Some intersections even had more than one word in the name. What is now TWINE, northwest of VNY, used to be "Twin Lakes".
Is that a chart that you saved, or is it from some website?
It's one that I saved -- probably from 1978 or so. I don't think I still have the chart; just this scanned portion.
Just noticed -- there were intersections named "Ling" and "Lang", just 37 nm apart ...
I've wondered why the PC police haven't put the kibosh on this one:
Hey, I been there! Made sure to point it out to my wife. Earlier she pointed to the GPS and said, "Look! It SUX to go to KRAP!"
