Steven Frischling, aka: Fish, is globe hopping professional photographer, airline emerging media consultant working with large global airlines and founder of The Travel Strategist. Fish has racked up more than 1,000,000 miles since he started to track his mileage in 2005.

Fish's travel tends to be less than leisurely, including flying from New York to Basrah, Iraq, for six hours; Hong Kong for eight hours, Kuwait City for two hours and traveling around the world in 3.5 days to shoot a series of photo assignments in 4 cities and 4 countries on 3 separate continents.

Fish grew up at the end of New York's JFK International Airport's Runway 4R/22L, which probably explains his enjoyment of watching planes, fly overhead. When not shooting photos or traveling Fish designs camera bags, hones is expertise on airline security and spends his time at home cheering for the Red Sox with his 3 kids 102 yards from the ocean.

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!
