    Title: "COFFEE ON THE WING BEAM-Memories of the P2V Neptune" By Capt. Brian McGuiness USNR (Ret.). From Operation Market Time in Vietnam to the latter days of the Cold War, with vignettes of the Pueblo seizure, the earlier Korean War, the Truculent Turtle, and all eight models of the venerable P2 V Neptune aircraft. Every flight that begins or ends in bad weather is under the take‐off-to‐landing control of the A.T.C. The flight is planned, minute by minute and mile by mile, along specific radio‐beam airways and at assigned altitudes.

      The Air Force’s UFO-related inquiries took place against a backdrop of frenzied popular interest in the strange flying objects, which reached its peak soon after Project Blue Book began in Throughout the 20th century, Parker Brothers published many other successful games including Clue, Risk, and Sorry! Additionally, the company produced drawing sets and other educational toys, puzzles, paper dolls, and children's books. In Parker Brothers became a part of toy giant Hasbro, but the Parker Brothers name has remained on games Author: Parker Brothers Inc.

"Flying the Beam". “Flying the beam” in the s and s meant using radio range stations to navigate. Pilots hoped to hear a steady tone on the radio that meant they were on course. If they drifted off course to either side, they would hear different sounds—a Morse code “A” or “N”.

This old game, designed by Captain William J. Chapman, an army pilot, is based on actual blind flying conditions. When "flying the beam", the pilot hears a steady radio buzz when he is on his true course. If he flies to one side of the beam, he hears the Morse code letter "A" .-); if to the other, the letter "N" (.)/10(3).

Then a breakthrough happened with radio signals. These signals could even include radio stations. The book also sketches out the development of the Beam, major conflicts on earth that led to much death & destruction and the split in society The first book (Season 1) ends at a good point after developing the characters, strands and technology/5.

The Atari Video Computer System dominated the home video game market so completely that “Atari” became the generic term for a video game console. The Atari VCS was affordable and offered the flexibility of changeable cartridges.

A directional beam is produced to guide the pilot to his destination, and as long as he keeps on this beam he knows that he is safe, even if he cannot see around him for fog, or get his bearings in.

The low-frequency radio range, also known as the four-course radio range, LF/MF four-course radio range, A-N radio range, Adcock radio range, or commonly "the range", was the main navigation system used by aircraft for instrument flying in the s and s, until the advent of the VHF omnidirectional range (VOR), beginning in the late s.

It was used for en route.

Straying right or left of the center resulted in hearing an “A” or “N.” Pilots affectionately called this crude flying technique “flying the beam.” I was proud of my skill in following these old signals.
