In The Beginning.....

"With the development of commercial air services (and radio) in the 1930s came the need for a supporting ground organisation.

This need was reinforced by the tragic losses of the first ANA's Avro X Southern Cloud in 1931, Airlines of Australia's Stinson VH-UHH in 1937 and the second ANA's DC3 Kyeema in 1938.

At first marine radio stations were used for communication with aircraft, but soon a dedicated air traffic services organisation was established, one that continues to play a vital role in safe air transport today."

Aeroplane windsock - The Quaal Windsock - Sundance Wyoming

I thought that this may be of interest? I was quite taken with it! An antique Beechcraft airplane serves as a giant windsock for people driving through the blustery open country of eastern Wyoming.
