Okay, here is serious Trivia Challenge! Can any of you nice folks spot something wholly unique and timely in this part of a sectional? For general information, this is the Camp David area.

Must be a Federal Prison nearby?  Sorry, it says fish hatchery.😉

Surely that can't be intentional. But then again... Indianapolis has intersections named after race drivers.

It took me several minutes to see what was "unusual and or interesting" about this portion of a sectional myself!

What is interesting about these two intersections is that they've been around for very many years, long before the current events in any case. It may be sheer coincidence, but I'd like to believe it is something more cosmic such as karma... :laugh:

The following is from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prohibited_airspace

Quote

Section of VFR Terminal Area Raster Aeronautical Chart Baltimore/Washington, 84th edition, showing the prohibited area P-40 and restricted area R-4009 around Camp David Note: This map is valid until 26 July 2012. For navigational purposes, be sure to get the newest edition at the official FAA website

Here is a link to an article discussing the impact of this on glider operations at High Rock:

That HAD to have been added recently though.   Well, in the last 2 years, anyway. 

They need another intersection called SEDIT and a VOR nearby called ION.  :ph34r:

One of my favorites is KSTS... Charles M Schulz - Sonoma County of Charlie Brown cartoon fame.  Both the radio and GPS approaches to RWY 32 have AF's named "LUSEE" and "PIGPN".  And of course there is a departure named "CHARLIE FIVE".

The referenced Wikipedia article sectional chart shows the intersections existed at least as far back as 2012. (If not before). I would bet they are indeed named after the very person we are referencing. He was quite well-known and well-regarded in government circles long before his current assignment - having served as the director of the FBI from 2001 to 2013.

Oh yes, I knew that but had forgotten.

Another interesting one is one of the STARs for KDCA - FRDMM4, has waypoints like COURG, LETZZ and RLLLL.

The last link I posted has the same part of a sectional. The text reads: "In the aftermath of the 9/11/2001 attacks..."

So, at least from 2001 for those named intersections. :gaul:
