It seems the lights have been atop this nude strip club for a few years, but last Sunday night the spot lights distracted a WN Pilot arriving from ABQ while lining up to land on 13R at DAL.

The pilot thought it might have been a laser, but it was a rotating spotlight, that is now disconnected.

The DAL authorities should get together with the "Bombshell" cabaret owner and convert the rotating spotlight into some sort of a Lead-In light which given its location (Walnut Hill/I-35), would be ideal for the 13s. Its about 2 miles along the extended centerline of the 31s.

In fact there are several other strip clubs in the area that could be used to form a complete Lead-In Light System for the 13s not unlike the Parkway Visual approach along the Canarsie Pier to JFK's 13L/R!

I think they should look into it!

Yeah! They could be dancing women pointing in the direction of the thresholds!

DAL7e7 is wondering... Do pilots take crash courses?

Splendid! When it comes to guidance on final approach, there's nothing better than a bunch of coke-snorting bimbos with IQs almost equal to their (fake) bust sizes

Mockingbird has a lot of strip clubs. The area around Love Field is kinda smutsville. Nothing wrong with that. Been to many a bachelor party there! You can see the planes land and watch naked ladies at the same time!!!

Last time I looked, there were more strip clubs per square mile in Dallas than anywhere else. I am sure they would be willing to help the FAA with lighting.

The lights from The Landing Strip strip club in KDTW used to distract me. Not on landing, but on my drive home.

There are areas not far from there that are pretty nice. You start going east and you'll run into uptown and highland park - very high end. Going east towards Stemmons though... ghetto and trashy.

The Landing Strip distracted me flying in and out of YIP. The thought of heading there after a hard day of flying.....

Good things Dallas moved the clubs a few miles away! I could not imagine if the old Baby Dolls had a spotlight on NW Highway right in front of the runway!

Ha, no kiddin! I remember the giant billboard Baby Dolls used to have as you entered the tollroad off I-35 heading north when I was a kid. It's since been replaced by a giant Coors Lite ad...I think. Needless to say, you know where I went on my 18th birthday years ago.

I think Inwood road kinda bisects Mockingbird into its two respective spheres...go East, you're in HP and the nicer areas, go west...well, see for yourself. Either way, Mockingbird sucks. Way too much stop-and-go traffic in HP and awful roads/paving near the Love Field area. But yeah, West Dallas and the area around DAL are is pretty bad.

As the crow flys, the "new" Baby Doll's is probably less than a mile, and as before, directly under the flight path (just at 35E and NW Highway instead of NW Highway and Backman pond (a lake, you have to be kidding me, a urinal has more water than that "lake")!

Hey now, Bachman Lake was my second home for all four years of high school...I was a competitive rower and a member of the Dallas Rowing Club. Spent many occasions gliding on the water at 5:30 AM to watch the sun rise, and then again at 8:30 PM as the sun set. It was actually quite exhilarating because I love water and water sports, so I grew to love it. The dredging project, once completed in 2003, actually cleaned the lake up quite a bit and removed a lot of the odors. As a kid, my Dad and I would bike around the trail and I loved it when a Southwest jet would come roaring over our heads on approach. When I started to row, the aircraft movement became always second nature to me. It was always great to be sprinting on the final stretch down Shorecrest Drive in 90 degree plus Texas weather when the DHL 767 would blast over my head promptly at 4PM...although nothing beats all the times when WN still had their noisy 737-200s which were AWFUL.

And yes, I have also swam in the lake...when I was a novice, and upgraded to a level-five racing shell, I lost my balance a few times, capsized, and went into the drink. Thankfully, the DRC boathouse had showers. Could have been worse...could have been the Schuylkill in Philly (i.e. cadavers galore). Bachman also presently contains my lanyard with my 4Runner and house keys which once slipped in as well...Dad wasn't too happy about that. So, you can say that a piece of me has been left behind.

When I interned at WN for two summers in RM, I enjoyed a different relationship with Bachman...seeing it from the air flying in and out of DAL, using those non-rev privileges. Ha.

I miss Texas water...so nice and warm. I went swimming in Lake Michigan the other day and it's kinda nasty....don't be fooled by how blue it looks. And it's really, really cold...even when the temps are in the high 90's in Chicago.

During my time in Texas, I also rowed at Bachman Lake with my firm's crew. The area of NW Hwy nearby used to be heavy with strip clubs and other seediness, but seemed to have cleaned up on my recent trip back. Some even seem to have been levelled. But like crabgrass, I assume that they will sprout again.

TUS has a strip club located right next to the airport actually. They try to hide it as best they can, but a few blocks before you enter the main entrance for the terminal while driving on Tucson Blvd , look to your right and you'll see a little sign of an animated pole dancer which signals that if you make a right where the sign is, you're headed towards the wonders of Club Turbulence.

So that's where the airport got all its money for those terminal renovations...   You stay classy Tucson.
