I love this sign. It’s in the Providence Airport, which in spite of its airport code PVD is not in Providence.
That’s not so bad. Stranger is landing in the Cincinnati Airport, which is in a different state. It’s in Florence, Kentucky. And thus, obviously, has the airport code CVG. Probably in reference to nearby Covington Kentucky, although the connection eludes me.
When you work in publishing you are trained early in your career to apply the ‘dirty mind test’ to all headlines, reading them aloud and thinking like Beavis and Butthead, in order to avoid accidentally splashing a double entrendre on your front page. If aviation officials had been given similar training, they might not have applied more logical airport codes, but they certainly would have found a safer designation for Pensacola (PNS).
