CONCRETE ARROW QUEST : Search for Transcontinental Airway Beacons – Part 7
It’s hard to imagine that Cindy and I have been going out and looking for these concrete arrows and airway beacons for about two years now and still finding new ones to visit and explore. In fact, thanks to a tip that Linebacker posted up a while back, we recently made a stop over at Western New Mexico Aviation Heritage Museum at the Grants-Milan Airport to see the wonderful beacon and arrow display that they have there. While this wasn’t the original location for much of what you see, the tower and buildings are in fact original structures from the Transcontinental Air Transport (TAT) route that was laid out by Charles Lindbergh back in 1929 and were donated to and restored by the Cibola County Historical Society. This is the one place you can visit and see what an airway beacon, it’s tower, concrete arrow and supporting buildings would have looked like back in its prime.
