Short Final


This past week I watched the Wings Over Wine Country Air Show practice from my hangar at KSTS. I was listening to the tower on my handheld. While I was listening, three different pilots wandered into the TFR, causing the rehearsals to be delayed. The fourth time it happened was when the Canadian Snowbirds had just started their routine. The tower notified them they would have to stop until the offender left the zone.

One of the Snowbirds then asked the tower:
“What’s with all these pilots busting the TFR?”

The tower responded:
“Welcome to Sonoma County. They drive like that, too.”
