Today’s Photo 2-28-11



It’s the last day of February and I’m standing out by the lake at dawn -- the coldest part of the day -- in a t-shirt. Just sayin’. There’s not a leaf on a tree yet, and it’s warm enough for me to stand outside a couple of hours in a t-shirt. That can only mean one thing. Thunderstorms.

On days like this, I’m glad I’m retired. It was a nice sunrise, by the way.

Don,
Your Atlantic article is a great introduction to the ATC riddle facing the developed world.

Leveling the peaks and valleys of daily flight schedules seems to offer the best opportunity to enhance runway "productivity" in the near-term.

Night-time flying could be made more attractive by developing a system similar to Europe's Night Trains.

Also, there are a lot of under-used runways that could be brought into use. It all takes long-range planning, a prescious commodity these days.
