As kids, my brothers and I regularly heard the phonetic alphabet (a set of words used instead of alphabetic letters in radio communication; each word stands for its initial letter).
Because of our kids continued interest in planes and airports I thought to write them on our whiteboard this week:-
In keeping with this theme, (and also because we got a warrant for our van this morning) I thought of aircraft registration - a unique alphanumeric string that identifies a civil aircraft, in similar fashion to a licence plate on an automobile. I'm not going to write about the history of the whys and wherefores to do with it, but simply mention that in New Zealand the prefix on our aircraft are ZK. There's a bunch of different presentations depending on what kind of aircraft it is, eg historical aircraft (eg ZK-A), helicopter (eg ZK-H), balloon (eg ZK-FA), gliders (eg ZK-G) etc.
Thanks for dropping by
