That is definitely a great find. Ive never seen an approach that had not only names you could pronounce, but were also linked together like that. Thanks for the post.Craig

Hey! I was born there (Pease AFB, Portsmouth NH)! As funny as those waypoints are, did anyone else notice the intersection NE of ITAWA? It says SATAN for crying out loud! Who in their right mind names an intersection "SATAN"?-Max Cowgill

There is also a waypoint calle Bosox outside of Boston, and oivee outside of Portland, ME, which is frequently mispronounced as oiveeeeee by gentile controllers :), instead of oivayyy, like our Jewish friends.P4 1.8768 ram 80 gig hardriveVisiontek Ti4 4600CH yoke/pedalsElite Multi quadrant19" inch monitor-Soundblaster PCI 512Win XPInstrument rated ASEL -224 hoursAOPALawyerPilots Bar Association"Men without dreams are never free, twas thus this way and thus will ever be."

As well, they do this intentionally where they can for memory sake. I know all of us now know that approach! :)

And searching for funny-named intersections give you something to do to help pass the time on those otherwise boring instrument approaches!
