Fish has been covering aviation and transportation security issues since September 15, 2001, after walking away from Ground Zero in Lower Manhattan following four days of documenting the worst aviation security disaster in history.

Having spent more than a decade-and-a-half as a full-time photojournalist, Fish now divides his time between building social media and social commerce strategies and solutions for global travel brands, along with researching aviation and transportation security.

Growing up at the end up New York's JFK International Airport's Runway 4R/22L probably explains Fish’s enjoyment of watching planes fly overhead. When not working or shooting photos, Fish can be found playing with (and cleaning up after) his three kids, chasing his dogs, standing in the kitchen cooking, monitoring radios public safety and federal radios and of course cheering for the Red Sox.

You can find Fish on Twitter at @flyingwithfish …and … join Fish every Thursday at 3:30pm EST as he hosts the weekly #TNI #Travel Chat on Twitter.

Is Kansas City’s Runway 1R Approach Perfect For Thanksgiving?

Airports around the world have some interesting five-letter names to assist pilots in lining up for their runway approaches, which I have previously written about here – Airport Waypoints That Will Make You Laugh.


But on this day of Thanksgiving, a day of Turkeys being slow cooked, roasted and deep fried around the United States, as well as other feasts … you have to wonder if the approach into Kansas City International Airport’s Runway 1R is the perfect approach.


What is the approach into KCI’s Runway 1R? SPICY BARBQ TERKY SMOKE RIBBS


I wonder how many pilots get hungry while on short final into Kansas City flying this approach.


Happy Thanksgiving & Happy Flying!

  2. Are there any runways numbered 0/18?

  3. Tom,

    No, as far as I know the closest you’ll get to 0/18 is Runway 18/36.

    Happy Flying!
