Ok, fellow AvNerds. I'm back out on the road, and the other day, coming out of California, near Barstow, I discovered a couple of mysteries.
One involves power lines. There were two sets of four power lines (8 total) running parallel, and four more running at an angle. One set of lines
(4), went through a transformer farm. None of the others did.
The really bizarre mystery though, was right smack in the middle of the desert, with nothing but a majorly overgrown chunk of concrete near it, was an
ILS. There was no visible air strip near it, except the one over grown one that looked like it hadn't been used since before ILS was invented.
So, the questions are, why the transformers on the four lines, and more importantly, why the HECK is there an ILS in the middle of nowhere?
