When I realize our next fix is....
Wow, Tesla is near Norilsk?
Yep, a little southeast, not a lot out there.
Nice. My grandparents lived in Norilsk for years until 1990. Brrrrr!
I even visited when I was 5. Don't remember much but snow.
Where were you headed? PEK?
Mod note: Moved from "Model S" forum to "Off-Topic". Hope I didn't make anyone car sick with the sharp turns.
Google Earth doesn't seem to know a town or location in Russia called "Tesla". When I search for it I get a company in St. Petersburg:
Tesla, Ptf, OOO
prospekt Stachek, 8, А, St Petersburg, Russia, 198095
+7 800 555-90-05
Google Earth does know about Norilsk Russia. Wow, talk about the "frozen north"! Norilsk is in the middle of Siberia. I can't imagine what it would be like living there.
In this case "Tesla" is just a navigational waypoint based on lat/lon coordinates. Just a point they named Tesla. They always use 5 letters for the names so almost any combination can be generated. Some names are even used more than once.
Thanks Al. I'm not a pilot so I didn't understand what the photo of that instrument was displaying.
My favorite is KMART in (iirc) Oklahoma.
Yep, back home Monday. Silk and Pearl are zoos this time of year:scared:
Of course, the classic example of the FAA folks having fun when naming fixes is on the RNAV(GPS) approach into Runway 16 at Portsmouth International Airport (KPSM).
The approach fixes including the missed approach are ITAWT, ITAWA, PUDYE, TTATT, IDEED.
