What you can't see is the cross street...Beech Court. This happened yesterday next to the airport in Erie, CO. Most of the streets that surround the airport are named after aircraft manufacturers (Piper Dr, Mooney, Pl, and etc).

At the beginning of World War II, a series of housing communities near defense-related industries were built around the country. In Baltimore, one such community was primarily aimed at workers at the nearby Glenn L Martin aircraft plant. Aero Acres homes were built with Camesto (think sugarcane, asbestos, and cement composite), but the community thrives (very nicely) to this day. You are able to live on such streets as Fuselage Avenue, Dihedral Drive, Propeller Drive, Helicopter Drive, Cockpit Drive, Left Wing Street, Right Wing Street (the builder was fair and balanced), and Longeron Drive.
All, of course, are very easily accessed from Martin Boulevard.

An area on the eastern edge of YVR airport has many streets with aviation-related names, both aircraft manufacturers and aircraft types, mainly WWII military types. Coincidentally, one of the streets is named Cessna Drive.

I have just moved to London, Ontario and one of the streets I walk my dog on is called Redtail Court. I didn't think much of it at first, but then I started to notice the house numbers. There is 727 Redtail Court, 747 Redtail Court and, across the street, 742 Redtail Court. Then, there are a couple of others, not as applicable, such as 733 Redtail Court and 739 Redtail Court. Wouldn't it be a great place for an NW pilot to retire to?
