An Evektor crash landed on Cessna drive. Irony.

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).

A trailer park here in Bismarck has airline related names.

American Ave, Continental Ave, Northwest Dr, Delta Ave, Boeing Ave.
Then across the road in the industrial area we have Frontier Dr, Republic St, Cessna Av, Piper St, Braniff Ave

I'd love to live on Northwest Drive, if only it wasn't the trailer park

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.

Others include:

Boeing Avenue
Douglas Crescent
Handley Avenue
Catalina Crescent
Lancaster Crescent
Wellington Crescent
Stirling Avenue
Hudson Avenue
Anson Avenue
Lysander Lane

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?
