  • [Fun] Aerial flyover an empty Disneyland

    I came across this video over my YouTube feed that was posted a couple of hours ago showing an empty Disneyland. I’m pretty sure this is from earlier today because of how hazy it is. Fast forward to Disneyland at 8:47 but there is some interesting discussion with ATC before that with an explanation of why there is no footage of DCA. Also Angel Stadium is shown at 7:14 if you are interested in that - the parking lot is packed with unused rental cars due to the shutdown.

    Cool. Thanks for posting.

    For those curious about the flight restrictions, this is what it says on the LA Terminal Area Chart. The "temporary" restrictions have been in place since 2002.

        For those who do not know what a VORTAC (or commonly called a VOR) is, it is an aeronautical navigational device that pilots use to get from point A to point B.

        It looks like a giant bowling pin and is usually located on higher ground as its signal is line-of-sight.

        Each one has its own radio frequency and it has 'radials' going outward from the center, much like spokes on a bicycle. In the cockpit, there's a display that has a dial you set for a specific radial and a needle that points to that radial. These radials are very much like imaginary roads in the sky, called airways.

        If you dial in a specific airway (radial) and the cockpit display needle points to the left, the airway is to your left. If it points straight down, you're right on the airway.

        There is another instrument in the cockpit called DME (Distance Measuring Equipment). This device will tell you how far away for the VOR you are.

        In the above post, if you flew on the 066 degree radial from the Seal Beach VOR, when your DME read 6.8 miles, you'd be right over DL.
