You Know You're In Trouble When You Have To Check That
The FAA Has Gotten Their Facts Straight...
ANN has received an
urgent notice from an FAA Staffer indicating that the TFR
graphic that accompanied our original publication of TFR
5/5094 is mistaken and that pilots are busting
this TFR. Checking with the FAA site, we see that the TFR depiction
we had previously published is STILL depicted in
RealTime. Afraid yet?
However; upon checking the National Interagency Airspace
Information Website, we see that their TFR depiction is of a
rectangular piece of airspace instead of the triangular depiction
STILL posted on the FAA site. We are inclined to believe that the
NIFC website has gotten it right and military sources seem to
SO... here is the proper (so far as we know...) TFR Graphic
depiction. But... we gotta tell tell you that when the FAA
site is wrong for three days in a row on this matter, we have to
worry about what else is going wrong. We hope that the FAA is
not busting pilots for an improper depiction provided by Uncle
