36 miles NE of KRIC on V33 lies the FAGED intersection.
As you can imagine, it gets interesting when talking with approach :-)

KPSM RNAV (GPS) 16 fixes are ITAWT ITAWA PUDYE TTATT, and the missed approach hold is IDEED! The other IAF is SATAN, which I think was the mean dog's name in the Sylvester and Tweety cartoons. Some controllers have a great sense of humor, if not also a little too much time on their hands? We used to use several of the funny SIDS, STARS, and Approaches to break-up the dry material at the USAF Advanced Instrument School. And yes, I had too much time on my hands too!

So, along the path for WINNI, they need a BSTRD.

RNAV STAR approach to Wellington, New Zealand (NZWN) used to proceed DUNNO FICAN RUNTO DOGGI. It has since been changed because of complaints. Go figure.

There is a little town in southern Washington named "Dixie". I always got a kick out of the pilots calling on company saying things like "I'm way down south of Dixie, we'll be at the gate in 10 minutes" or something like that.

Actually the name from the docs is MLTT - a little tough to read.
