Changing Socks

I saw an employee installing a new windsock yesterday at our airport.  It gave me a good perspective on how big those things are.  Windsocks are made to be fully extended at a specific speed.  This one, for example, is a 15 knot windsock.  Since it’s not extended fully, the wind is probably about 12 knots.  There is also a light inside the windsock to help pilots see it at night.

    Hope that guy doesn’t lean too far into that thing – could be the last we see of him.
