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?

The A320 is down by LHR. Look out for it next time you're on the M25 @ the LHR turnoff. There is a sign above the road for the airport, and the other lane is for the "A320" to Reading or something.

Probably just coincidence....

A friend of mine lives in a village called Woodley, near Reading, Berks. where roads are named after old planes (i.e. Comet way, Hawker way, Hurricane, Spitfire, Viscount etc.)

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  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

The main road leading up to Luton airport is called "Airport approach road", like Rick767 mentioned, it must have taken an Einstein to think of that.  Nuts

Here in STL we have a general aviation airport named Spirit of St Louis. Not sure if any roads have aircraft names, but we do have a Lindbergh Blvd.

Up on the site of the old Glasgow Airport at Renfrew, a housing estate was built and the roads are named after aircraft.

Close to where I live,there's a "Junkersveien" (Junkers Road).Possibly named so after a JU52 crash in 1947 that killed all onboard,including a few celebrities.

Hallfield Estate,on the old Hendon Aerodrome outside London,has several roads named after WW2 aircraft.
