    Now that is funny Gordon. You apparently know the area! And thanks to Bob for handling the situation in such a responsible manner. I don’t think I have that gene.

    This perhaps belongs in the “oops” thread, but it made an impression about looking out your window and using the comm even on the ground.

    This was a commercial flight into KSFO last December, at night visual, and it really shows how aircraft blend into the tarmac, and how much taxiways look like runways. It’s not just a Harrison Ford thing.

    Don’t be afraid to help someone out on the radio - it might help.

    Was it the Air Canada flight 759 incident, or was there another? The article is behind a paywall.

    Headed to Juneau yesterday and heard the call "Cathedral Valley for Haines".

    Ok, I have only been around here for about 51 years, and flying here for 34 of them-where is this Cathedral Valley?

    So I asked. I forgot it is 'new pilot' season where the one commercial carrier brings in their low time wonders and turns them loose with minimal training by others with no local knowledge so they make up new names for everything and pass it along like gospel.

    A quick lesson in geography over 1229, and I hope the lad has an understanding of what to call, because our flight paths cross in the perfect spot for sun in our eyes. Reading the actual USGS maps and Aeronautical charts would be asking too much for these pilots I guess.

    Back to the rule in Bethel: Go at ground level below where idiots fly.
    I don't know where you've been me lad, but I see you won first Prize!

    Oh sorry, yes, you probably have to register your email to access. It's free if they know your name. But yes, it's Flight 759 as you stated.
