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.

Follow Santa Using NORAD’s Global Tracking

It is that time of year again … when the North American Aerespace Defense Command (NORAD), a bi-national military coalition of the United Stated and Canada, turns over its global tracking systems to the primary task of tracking one aircraft, making sure this special annual mission goes unimpeded anywhere in the world … the flight of Santa One.  Not even Air Force One flying in the airspace over the United States takes priority of Santa One!

 

Santa One’s annual flight schedule makes FedEx and UPS flight schedules look lackadaisical as Santa and his crew work with air traffic controllers around the world to be on time and on target delivering presents to boys and girls everywhere.

 

With the global support in place to ensure Santa One goes ‘skids up’ on time from the North Pole International Sleighport, NORAD’s global tracking systems not only ensure Santa’s flight dispatchers in the North Pole are well informed and the required airspace is clear … but also to let good little boys and girls know where Santa is before they get all nestled in their beds with visions of sugar plumbs dancing in their heads.

 

Santa One is scheduled to depart in just 90 minutes from the time I am writing this, his Elf Rampers are fueling the Reindeer, double checking sleigh weights and balances, deicing the skids and doing a final check for the on board guidance system as I type.

 

So … remember, no matter where you are, Santa is headed your way and you can follow him at NORADSanta.org and on NORAD’s Santa Tracking Twitter feed @NORADSanta.

 

Ho Ho Ho and Merry Flying!
