When I was out earlier to day I noticed that the road's round about where I say are the same as Boeing airplane's. Ones I can remember are B 777, B763 and B737 which is acutely the road to Glasgow Airport is there any roads where you stay the same as airplanes?

There is an NDB in Woodley (WOD) which forms the intersection of two major airways over the Southern UK, the A1 / UA1 and the A47 / UA47. So yet another link I suppose...
I always find it amusing how the (landside) roads around an airport complex are named with the airport in mind, Manchester has some pretty good examples like Chicago Avenue and Sydney Drive etc... Birmingham (BHX) has the very un-inspiring "Airport Way" which leads to the terminal... how inventive it must have taken them years to come up with that
I used to love the smell of Jet-A in the morning...
