I am trying to figure out what's up with your Disclaimer. Aren't those plates current?

Yeah the plates are current. Use the ones from the website link thought. I just don't want to be responsible for the PDF file links in case they aren't updated with new charts in 28 days or so. The link to NACO is good and free. The charts are under "digital-tpp". I am by no means promoting FAA charts; I like/use Jeppesen IAPs! Unfortunetly I can't give out that link!

Always use a disclaimer. If you don't, somewhere, someone is dumb enough to go out and use a chart that they don't check for currency and kill themselves. I used to have a t-shirt with the FAA plate for DSM ILS 13R and it said the same thing. Just in case someone decided to look at their shirt instead of looking up the plate.

There is an intersection about 10-15 miles offshore of the florida keys called DROWN.

I'll bet you went to UND or Embry-Riddle also. C'mon, a shirt with an ILS approach plate? I think they should do a "triumph the comic dog" skit about aviation "enthusiasts", like the star wars one they did a few years back.

Didn't there used to be a Star Trek approach?

KIRKK, SPOCK, SULUU, etc?

I don't know if it exists anymore...

Couldn't find the Star Trek approach. KIRKK fix is at KEVY, SPOCK fix is at KVJI and there is no SULUU fix. And don't get me started with Riddle kids, I sit next to one forty hours a week!!!

Someone's gonna have to help me out on the location, I think it's BNA. But There's a transition fix on the STAR called DRESR. Which leads to approach control instructions such as: "cross DRESR at 11,000..."

Also for baseball fans, you gotta love the Marlin 4 arrival, TRIPL-DUBBL-MARLN

Good stuff....

The DRESR fix is Cincinatti, OH. I heard approach tell a pilot "Cross DRESR at 11,000 feet," and the pilot asked for a diversion. There are some weird fixes out there!
