The best one I've come across is just west of Perth, Australia (I assume it hasn't changed). They lie vertically along a longatude, in sequence from north to south:WONSAJOLLYSWAGYCAMBSBUIYABYLLABONGSUNDERACOOLEBARRTREESIt seems somebody at Airservices has a sense of humor at least :) For those that may not know, these are the words to Australia's famous Waltzing Matilda song :)Subin.

Just an advice mate. Those are hardly Serbian words... Lot (if not all) of Slavic languages use them with the same meaning.Just look at the statement that "burek" is a Serbian national dish and then have a peek at the wikipedia article. lol. There are quite a lot of Turkish influences (linguistic, culinary or otherwise) around the Balkans since half of eastern Europe was within the borders of the Ottoman empire from the end of 14th up until late 19th century. Just for consideration
It shows what an educational hobby flight sim is. Not only do you learn about aviation you also can pick up a little bit of Serbian on your simulated travels. Thanks everyone for your interesting posts.

If you look at some of the Departures out of Pam Beach KPBI:The BUFIT1 Departure: http://126.96.36.199.../00449BUFIT.PDF JIMEY and BUFIT intersectionsThe IVNKA1 Departure: http://188.8.131.52.../00449IVNKA.PDF IVNKA and TRMMP insterestionsMost of the departures out of Palm Beach have intersting Intersections

One of the transitions on the COWBY4 departure from KLAS is the GUP transition. So this is read "Cowboy four departure, Gallup transition" :lol:There's a part of Interstate 76 in Philadelphia that's known as the Schuylkill Expressway (as it follows the Schuylkill River, which is pronounced School Kill, but blended and with our funny accent). The BOJID1 arrival to PHL (the part for landing East) ends with SCOOL KYILL EXPRS WHEYYThe JIMGE2 arrival from the south that overflies New Jersey ends with JRSEY PIIKE EASEY PAASS (NJ Turnpike, which uses EZ PASS auto toll transponders)My favorite is the ILS 1R at MCI (Kansas City) SPICY BARBQ TERKY SMOKE RIBBSWho says nobody at the FAA has a sense of humor?

KBOS, Boston Logan, has some DPs names after Boston sports teams CELTK, PATSS, SSOX, and has one called LBSTA, lobster being a very popular dish in the area.Somewhere in the US, following an airway will get you over IWANA, BURGR, NSOME, FRIES. Someone was hungry.

Near Nagoya in Japan (RJGG) there's a whole bunch of good ones. There's the Wright brothers: ORVIL and WILBR and a whole bunch of bar themed ones if I remember correctly (CARDS, DARTS, LIQOR and so on). Looking at the Japan en-route chart they also have SUGAR and SPICE in sequence on an airway.I think there's also a US airport with a Start Trek themed procedure, but I forget which it is.

I always kind of liked the CRAZY WOMAN VOR. There are a LOT of arrivals and departures with funny sequences of words. Atlanta has the BUNNI arrival, with DUMBB and BUNNI in sequence. A lot of the RNAV departures out of KATL reference sports teams like the Braves, Falcons, UGA (blech) Bulldogs, and GT Yellow Jackets. (WooHoo)I've also seen on US High charts HEVAN. So you might one day proceed direct HEVAN.
