Would like one, what kind would it be? VOR, NDB, rotating beacon, outer marker, approach lighting system, etc? Do you live under a crossroads in the sky? There's a VOR/DME about 1/8 mile from my house, so it gets quite busy up there.  Smile

Mostly military airspace above me :-( although we do get buzzed by heavy props of some sort (don't know the aircraft). Nearest civilian traffic about 10 miles away to/from BRS airport.

I live about 1/2 mile from a CLE navaid (I think. I'm not a pilot so I don't know how to check on such things). It's nothing more than a small white building and a radio antenna. Jets on approach to 6R and 6L fly right by my house. It's so nice to be able to spot from my backyard.

ILS for 26L at MIA Is very close to my house. I am sure there are some way points

No Navaids but I do have an airport in the backyard. The main runway-4500'x50' is less than five hundred feet from the guest house.

There's quite a bit of traffic, from Randolph AFB, flying into runway 14R. I get a good view of them from the backyard. And most the traffic from the North going to KSAT flies over our house.

I'll take an inner marker, but with planes buzzing directly over at 200', I might not be able to sleep too much  Smile

I live between Tebby VOR and the outer marker for rwy 01L/R at ARN, so I see allmost every aircraft that arrives on the left base for rwy 01L/R. I can also see in the far distance aircraft on the right base for rwy 26, when they're passing Tebby VOR.

Our house is in the approach path to now defunct military airport (LKHK) and not far from a test bomb range. MiG-21s blasting at low altitude was my wake-up call on many weekends in the 1980s.
There used to be some navigation facilty couple hundred meters from our house.

I can see a PAPI and REIL which are lights associated with a particular runway. An airport rotating beacon flashes green-white on the wall of my bedroom at night. I can see a VOR from the window behind me right now, but only with powerful binoculars.

I have a piece of the fresnel lens of one of the old lighted-airway beacons sitting on the shelf next to my desk.



Happiness is not seeing another trite Ste. Maarten photo all week long.
