Weather Vanes...

Fri Jul 09, 2004 2:26 pm

Hi everybody!

Did a search, didn't find much, So I guess the point of this topic is.... Who's airport has the best weather vane?

I'd say ours here at Whitehorse, Yukon (YXY/CYXY) is definetly near the top of the list... An old DC-3 that has been recently taken down from its pole, fixed up into exellent condition, and put back up, painted in a classic Canadian Pacific colour set, and continues to sit up on the pole, giving everyone who passes a chance to see what runway is in use that day. (the 3 is rigged up to always point into the wind, unless of course there isnt a wind.)

I think you've got it, CanadianNorth. That's the neatest weathervane I've ever seen.
