Last updated August 15, 2021
The following is an incomplete list of airway beacons and arrows. The original list, compiled by Roger Barnes in 2003, was drawn from the NGS database of survey marks. In recent years, many other contributors have shared their knowledge and added other beacon and arrow sites to the list. Many of these beacons no longer exist, but their locations and remains are of historical interest.
PIDs are clickable links to the most current NGS datasheets. Any item that does not have a PID is not in the NGS database but was discovered by other methods.

It appears that the tower was removed, as the structure is similar, but not the same as the Internation Derrick & Equipment towers. Reported by Glen Smallwood.|

Per the current owner Jim, whose father bought the land in 1920, the beacon was built in 1928 and at some point in the 1950's the mechanism that turned the light on at dusk and off at dawn failed and they had to manually switch it on and off. After doing this for some time due to parts unavailability the beacon was deactivated and the tower and generator shed were removed. The arrow is clearly visible in Google Maps. The angle of the tip of the arrow is not an artifact nor a sign of damage. It was built that way. Reported 10/29/2019 by Don Butner.|

There is a shed nearby which may be the original, slightly relocated. The arrow isn't obvious. 2013 satellite images show the tower on its side on the ground a short distance from its original location. I can't find any more recent photos. Tower may or may not be standing, shed possibly nearby, no arrow obvious. From Kerri Rempp, Chadron Record editor: "I checked with the city public works director who responded that the old tower has been sold, but the buyer is keeping it in one piece with the intention of setting it up at a later date." So the tower was removed from the airport in 2013. Reported by Brian Lee.|

94 thoughts on “Airway Beacons List—Western U.S.”
Around ten years ago I was fortunate to obtain a Westinghouse “on course” light with the original refector and a 500 watt bulb. Either Steve Owen or Dave Dupree [I’m sorry but I can’t remember which] traced the serial number and found my light was manufactured in 1930. It came from one of two arrow/beacon sites located on the old Sioux Falls – Omaha airmail route, just East of Blair, Nebraska [thanks to Brian & Charlotte Smith at Airows Across America for their excellent maps]. Some time after WW II the arrow/beacon sites on that route were scrapped and my light was purchased by an auto dealer in Blair, who used the narrow-beam on-course light in much the same way surplus WWII search lights were used by other dealers in those years, to promote sales. In the 1990’s the dealership moved to a new location and the old downtown building was closed up. In 2015, during rennovation of the old building, my light was found in a storage closet. I purchased the light from the worker who found it, and who had the good sense to recognize its historical importance. Although my light was missing the interior fresnel lens when I got it, I was able to obtain a clear fresnel lens from the fellow at the Montana Department of Transportation who, until a few years ago, mainained 18 arrow/beacon sites in the mountains of that state.
This old on-course light is one of my prized possessions. Even so, I’m not getting any younger. If anyone knows of a serious restoration project such as that which Steve Owen completed a dozen years ago at Grants, New Mexico, I am willing to discuss transfer of my light to such a project. If a worthy organization undertakes such a restoration project in Nebraska, I will go so far as to transport the light there myself!
I am concerned about an arrow/beacon site I know of that is located in the desert of Arizona. Because the terrain is very rugged the tower, rotating beacon and one of the on-course lights are still intact [or, they were intact two years ago]. Even so, it is just a matter of time before those priceless artifacts disappear. If anyone owns a helicopter, and is willing to donate their time and the fuel needed to get those lights off that mountain, I am certain we can find a local museum that would be delighted to preserve and display them.
As always, Zhanna, I thank you for the care and detail you put into your excellent web site.
There were always questions in my mind about the beacon on my grandfather’s farm in Deuel County, South Dakota. I have checked on this site and others, but find very few references to South Dakota. The beacon was there in 1945, the first time I saw it, and it may have been removed some time about 1949. It must have been powered by a generator, since there was no rural electricity in that location in those days.
I have been fascinated since I was a kid 50 years ago with the still functioning airway beacon on top of Rocky Butte in Portland Oregon, but haven’t been able to find out much information about it specifically. Any information would be greatly appreciated!
The beacon on Rocky Butte was part of the old Portland-Spokane lighted airway. The Portland-Pasco section of that airway was built in 1930-31. Because the beacon was located at Portland, the airway’s starting point, it was designated Portland-Spokane Site 0.
It is one of only a handful of original airway beacon towers, scattered around the country, that have survived more or less intact to the present day. On the platform of Rocky Butte’s tower is an early-style (1928 specification) Department of Commerce standard 24″ rotating airway beacon, along with two original (also 1928 spec.) 18″ course lights. These smaller lights would have been equipped with red interior lenses and flashed a Morse code signal in both directions along the airway centerline, giving the aviator his approximate position. The west-facing course light on Rocky Butte originally pointed toward Portland’s old Swan Island airport. In 1938, the light was adjusted to point toward the new municipal airport, today’s Portland International.
With input from several lighting manufacturers, the 24″ beacon and the course lights were designed, tested, specified and initially maintained by the U.S. Lighthouse Service / Airways Division.
The airway beacon system was slowly dismantled in the 1950’s and early 1960’s. A few beacons were deemed to have continued value as landmark beacons or hazard markers and were selected to remain operating past 1965. The beacon on Rocky Butte was one of those. As the airway lights began slowly disappearing from the Portland Sectional Aeronautical Chart, “Beacon 0” remained, until finally it was the only airway beacon on the chart. It continued to be depicted into the 1970’s.
It’s my understanding that responsibility for maintaining the Rocky Butte beacon was transferred by the FAA to Multnomah County in the 1970’s. I’m not sure who maintains the tower and lights today.
Portland-Spokane Airway Beacon Site “0”, Portland, Oregon:
Regarding transfer to Multnomah County –
Following is a notice that appeared in the April 20, 1973, newsletter of Columbia Aviation Country Club (CACC), based at Portland International Airport.
ROCKY BUTTE BEACON STAYS
Thanks in part to the seventh grade class of Mrs. Lucille Sheets at Jason Lee School Multnomah County took over the $900 maintenance and operation bill. The seventh graders sent their “Save the Beacon” booklet and appeal to Oregon Senators, Multnomah County Commissioner Tom Clark and the Columbia Aviation Country Club among others.
No information on the “Save the Beacon” booklet has been found.
I am trying to find out how these more remote beacons were powered as I intend to use one or more in a fiction story. I know many were in remote or hard-to access locations so I wondered what kind of generator or power supply was used to fuel the lights and operate the rotating mechanism for them. I recall the one on Woodchute Mtn north of Jerome, AZ and many scattered across north central Arizona from my childhood in the late 1940s and early 1950s. They quite fascinated me as a child and i’d look for them when we were out somewhere on a trip and coming home late in the evening or after dark.
Wherever possible, commercial power was used to operate the beacons and course lights. When economically feasible, power lines could be run up to several miles to service a beacon site. However, there were many airway sites that were so remote and inaccessible that engine/generator sets – essentially farm light plants – had to be located with or near the beacon tower. In a fortunate bit of historical serendipity, the necessary technological improvements to these electric plants (self-starting; not dependent on glass storage batteries; improved reliability, etc.) were perfected just in time to enable the rapid development of the federal lighted airways beginning the 1920’s.
Initially, several manufacturers, including Delco, Westinghouse and Kohler, provided these units to the Post Office Department, and after 1926, to the Department of Commerce. Eventually, the Kohler electric plants became the standard on the lighted airways. Initially, 800 and 1000-watt plants were used, but as the power requirements for beacon sites increased, 1500 and 2000-watt units were specified. Where beacon towers were located on high, rough terrain, such as the remote mesa’s of New Mexico, the generators were often located at the base of the mesa or mountain, with power lines strung up to the tower. In these cases, 3000-watt Kohler generators were sometimes used to meet the additional demands of getting the current up to the beacon. At Dept. of Commerce “intermediate landing fields,” the rotating beacons were supplemented by airfield lighting (boundary lights, obstruction lights, etc.), all of which required larger generators, usually in the 5000-watt (5kw) range.
A typical remote beacon site would have two generators, mounted side-by-side (sometimes slightly staggered), each on its own concrete pedestal. Each plant was normally operated on alternate nights, controlled by a specially-designed, Swiss-made astronomic time switch that was a technological marvel of its time. All of this equipment – the generators, astronomic time switch and other electrical circuits and switches – would typically be sheltered inside a 10′ x 14′ metal-clad shed of standardized design.
Remains of these sites can still be found throughout the country, particularly in the western states. Common identifying features are the 10′ x 14′ foundation walls and the two prominent concrete generator pedestals. Some of the early sites have large concrete arrows. After visiting (sometimes with great difficulty) just a few of the more inhospitable beacon locations, you can’t help but gain an appreciation for the incredible grit of the original “airways mechanicians” and their successors, who serviced these sites and made the system something that aviators could depend on.
Some of these airway beacons continued to operate well into the 1960’s. The beacon on Schnebly Hill (Los Angeles-Amarillo Site 42), near Sedona, was the last of the big airway lights to be decommissioned in Arizona. It went dark in 1968. The airport beacon tower at Cottonwood Airport is a former airway beacon site (LA-A 40) that is still operating in its original location. The Woodchute Mtn. beacon (LA-A Site 39) was decommissioned in 1965.
If you have the opportunity, I would encourage you to visit the Airway History Museum operated by the Cibola County Historical Society in Grants, New Mexico. It is located at the Grants-Milan Municipal Airport, right next to I-40. The museum displays everything we’ve discussed here (and much more), including an example of the type of Kohler generator most commonly used on the airways, displayed in an original, restored Dept. of Commerce generator shed. This accurate recreation of an airway beacon site also includes an original airway tower and beacon, as well as course lights and a Sauter astronomic time switch. http://www.cibolahistory.org/airway-heritage-museum.html
I have one of these airway beacon lights. Just like the big one in your picture with the triangular base. Does anyone have any info on buying a new bulb.
Sorry for the delayed response. The type of bulb needed depends on the lamp fixture that is currently in your beacon. An old beacon can have a newer fixture installed. Originally, the early style (1928 spec.) 24″ beacons had two 1000W T-20 mogul screw-base bulbs. Later, 1000W T-20 mogul bi-post bulbs were used. Over time, other “Airway Beacon” bulbs were used as the automatic lamp changers were changed or modified. An old airway beacon that was retired and later used as an airport beacon may now have a more modern fixture utilizing a modern lamp (halogen, etc.).
Airway beacon bulbs are usually available at online auction sites like eBay. They are often very expensive and just as often remain unsold. Wait a while and you’ll find one for a reasonable price. With decent packaging, they are surprisingly resistant to damage during shipping.
With photos, I may be able to tell you a bit more about your beacon.
Hello, where can I find the beacon number or where it was originally located? Oval plate has Department of Commerce made by Crouse-Hinds, serial #424. Next to it has a circular US Airways Department of Commerce plate. Thank you in advance.
I apologize for the delayed response. It is currently very hard to determine the location where a particular surviving beacon served. Those records, if they were ever maintained, have not been located. After years of examining data plates, I have come to the conclusion that the serial numbers represent the number within a particular contract batch, rather than an overall Dept. of Commerce serial. This is primarily because there are duplicate data plate serials between manufacturers and beacon types/production periods. Beacons tended to be ordered by the DoC in quantities ranging from 150 to 500 (usually multiples of 50), so serial number 424 was likely the 424th beacon produced by Crouse-Hinds under a contract for, say, 450 or 500 beacons. At least that’s my working theory.
While it’s hard to know precisely where your beacon served, sometimes there are clues regarding its history. With photos, I could probably tell you a little more.
If you can find the 1932 USGS map 1:96,000 scale, they have the beacons marked on them. You can fill in the Truckee, CA area using that map, there are six listed. Yreka map has one as does the map to the east of it.
Does anyone have a wiring diagram for these lights? I recently acquired light #99 and was told it came from the Marana Air field in Arizona. I would like to restore the light to its original condition and functioning.
Can anyone help him out? Reply and I’ll put you in touch.
You might try to contact Steve Owen on the below link. His group has been doing some excellent restoration projects.
DX5100 is in the middle of the windmill farms.which I don’t believe can be accessed. The satellite image clearly shows the beacon and small structure next to it. I don’ t see an arrow but am unclear on how close the arrow would be to the beacon if there was one.
Nice find, Elizabeth! I’ve added your update to the map. Not all beacon sites had associated arrows. While it’s not definitive, the fact that the original description for this site doesn’t mention an arrow is an indication that there may never have been one here.
I have received the following suggestion from Steve Bennett. I’m sure it will be helpful to many beacon-seekers! EarthExplorer has been added to the list of Resources.
I have a suggestion for anyone hoping to find one. If you look in Google maps satellite view and see nothing but green trees, do not despair. You have other options. Use http://earthexplorer.usgs.gov/.
On the data sets tab expand aerial imagery and choose either “aerial single frames” or “high resolution orthoimagery”. The trick is look for imagery taken in the winter months when the leaves are down and you have a better view of the naked landscape without all the foliage blocking the view.
The aerial single frames images go farther back in time. It is not uncommon to find 1950s images there.
I have received the following message from Cameron. Please respond if you have any information that would help!
Grandfather has an old airway beacon, he past away and don’t know anything about it, hope you could help me. It’s made by Sperry Gyroscope Co. INC.
Brooklyn N.Y. 110volts A.C. C.Y. PT-72834 SER-4017. He use to work at Maxwell Air Force Base back in the 50’s & 60’s and I think he got there.
Images are available here:
I’ve received the following reply from Dave DuPree:
Copyright for the third photo is unknown. It shows a brand new 24″ beacon, almost identical to Cameron’s, atop the new terminal building at Denver Municipal Airport (Stapleton) in 1929.
I have one also
Ran into an intact airway beacon with generator building on the top of Mahogany Mountain near La Grande, Oregon. 45.3679, -118.1763 My question is: How rare are intact beacons in Oregon?
We had one on the top of our hill growing up in east San Francisco Bay Area (California, Contra Costa County). As kids, we never questioned its reason for being. It was just a great place to play on the top of a knoll. Coordinates: 37.902908, -122.078140
I found one today on the San Francisco – Seattle route. It’s not listed above, But has to be BCN 30 something. Douglas County, above Wolf Creek Oregon.
I have some pictures, It’s visible on Google maps, to the right of the cell towers. The cell tower obscures its it somewhat due to the angle of the photo.
Found these arrows in fairly good shape all around Wyoming, Nevada and Utah.
Will visit and photograph these this summer.

[Copied from comment made on EAST page]
I was turned onto this subject recently by the folks @ http://www.airtrafficatlanta.com
So, in a matter of a few hours, I collected the data sets from this page and the EAST page and made a Google Fusion Table map of the beacon positions.
Here’s the link to the map. https://www.google.com/fusiontables/DataSource?docid=1dVWeFsTXp2eJzlSI13qKdgWv6G0jj2iMC4ibfAg
Each beacon point has all of the data associated with the NGS survey data.
Hop you enjoy browsing
Is there a way to locate these on google maps? Where can I find latitude and longitude for them? Thanks.
Sure! I’m in the process of adding that information to the spreadsheets and also creating a map. But for now, click the PID links for the beacon you’re interested in searching for. This will bring up the datasheet. You can obtain the coordinates from the datasheet. Use the first line under CURRENT SURVEY CONTROL, which looks like this: NAD 83(1992) POSITION- 40 17 36.88597(N) 078 15 37.07212(W) ADJUSTED
40 17 36.88597(N) 078 15 37.07212(W) (for example) are the GPS coordinates, in degrees/minutes/seconds format. You can plug those coordinates into Google Maps/Earth to do your search. Good luck!
I have tried various times to use goole earth to do this, are there spacing requirements I should be aware f? I have tried the numbers with and without spaces, and google earth always tells me they could not understand the location.
It might be the N and W that are messing it up. You should be able to use the format 40 17 36.88597 -078 15 37.07212 (for example, for the above coordinates). The negative longitude means West (the positive latitude means North). You can also try the coordinate converters here: http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/calculators to generate other formats that might work better. Please let me know if this helps!
Am responding to Laura who commented about the Solomons Knob beacon site on Novemeber 18, 2013. I was there a couple years ago. The concrete arrow is in excellent condition. It points to Mountain Pass beacon site to the east-northeast. The lower most sections of the 4 tower legs are still in place. The small shack you see in satillite photos is not the generator shack. It was part of a 1970s town of Baker communications relay facility. (The Manager of Baker CSD was with me and knew of it’s orgin. We hiked along the old beacon access road, still visible, to the site.)
Also want to mention 3 beacon sites not on this California list; all are in San Bernardino County. I have been to all 3. (I used Acme Mapper for the co-ordinates.) Squaw Mountain: 35.45934N 115.86433W Kelly (Kingston) Intermediate Airfield: 35.56241N 115.71463W Mesquite Pass (caution – it is inside a Wilderness Area): 35.62491N 115.63303W I think, but am not sure, these 3 beacons were on the LA to Salt Lake City route. Kelly Field had a caretaker’s house/office, beacon, compass circle, and other facilities. Concrete slabs remain. The house/office was moved to Baker in the 1950s. It (and the Silver Lake Field house/office also moved to Baker) were destroyed last year for a parking lot.
If 4-way radio beacon sites can be included in this website, a site of one is just north of the old Silver Lake Airfield, north of Baker.
I have not personally checked it out, but it appears that there is an intact tower in Medicine Bow, WY (Carbon County). There is a photo on http://www.flickr.com/photos/56597497@N06/8030854106/in/photolist-deEe8Q The coordinates for Google Earth are 41°53’13.34″N 106°11’24.32″W.
Thanks for putting all this work into your site!
located LQO 620 on google earth. I hunted deer and chucker all over Silver Zone and never ran across this arrow. Will be making a road trip soon to have a look!!
I will clarify after looking at Google street view. the site of DM1254 is still there. You can see where the area was never plowed and a tree has grown. The tower is not there.
Looks like DM1254 is still standing but stripped and possibly the generator shack. I am not sure on that though. There is a small metal roof close to it. Will drive out and check it out.
I have looked at this location and did not find any remains.
Are there any remnants of any of these beacons in WA state? I have a plane based at Skagit Airport (KBVS) and would love to try to find some of these. Unfortunately it looks as if most everything has been dismantled. Thanks!
Check out TR1164. It’s very close to the airport. There is something at the coordinates; it’s not an arrow and doesn’t look like a beacon, but it’s worth investigating.
MO1218 is still there. It’s just sort of in the back country and I think it’s on private land so it’s almost impossible to get to. But it still exists!
Found one just outside of Grants/Abq on top of a mesa. Going to have to go check it out now! You can see it in Google maps, the tip looks to be in a juniper tree now

Nice find! That’s FO1617, LOS ANGELES ALBUQ AWY BN 64.
Be aware of land ownership, most of the beacon sites in western New Mexico are Indian tribal lands and you would need to apply for a permit to visit. Exceptions are LA-A 61 and 62 on national forest lands, and LA-A 68 on the edge of Albuquerque (1929? TAT site, top of Nine Mile Hill, 1/2 mile south of I-40). LA-A 59B is at a private residence and 60 is on private land near El Morro but the generator site can be visited by checking at the coffee/gift shop.
Other TAT beacon sites (route abandoned by 1930-31) are beside I-40 in the highway right-of-way at Churchrock Road and at Prewitt on private land. West of Gallup to the AZ border, none has been confirmed yet. The TAT beacons were relocated long before the gov’t began surveying these sites. Apparently.
Any info or help in finding one of these would be appreciated. A couple are close to my current residence and two are near my home town, I have tried to follow turn by turn and coordinates, but land up in different sites. i believe that road names have changed from the 1930’s and today.

This is a very cool thing. While working on airplanes at the Pinal air park in Marana AZ we came across one of these markers but no arrow. It was however embedded in the concrete outside the south end of the hanger on the south end of the tarmac. We never did find out what the marker was for. Is this one of your markers?
I am interested in doing field searches for the 3 beacon sites in Pima Co. Is there a way to use Google Earth and the data found here to locate these sites?
Yes, click the PID links for the beacons you’re interested in searching for (in your case, CZ1821, CZ1965, and CZ1980).
Then you can obtain the coordinates from the datasheet. Use the first line under CURRENT SURVEY CONTROL, which looks like this:

CD0923 looks red/orange on Google Maps. It was easy to find following the lat/long in the discription.
would like to know where the beacon near Millersburg IA would be located as I live near there(south and west) and would enjoy looking for that one — any info would be interesting
I’ve just added one of these arrows to OpenStreetMap – http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/246901872 – and would encourage others to do likewise for the remaining examples. OpenStreetMap is a wiki – anyone can edit it.
Found another one and this one has the beacon light still, and there’s a geocache there. There are photos of the beacon at the cache listing at http://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC2TFPY_a-small-ray-of-light
DX4994 AIRWAY BEACON 3 A CA SAN DIEGO JULIAN (1988) 5404 1955 (O)
Let me know if you want me to keep finding them, or if you want to know updates on any of them that I already searched via Google Earth.
Sure, I’d like any updates you can provide! Thanks so much.
I have never heard of nor seen any of the arrows and would like to check out the Julian, CA arrow. Is there an address or GPS location I can use to find the arrow?
To obtain the GPS coordinates, click the PID link on the list for the beacon you’d like to find (in your case, DX4994). That will take you to the NGS datasheet for that beacon, and the datasheet has the coordinates right at the top, under CURRENT SURVEY CONTROL, in degrees/minutes/seconds format.
For the Julian beacon, the coordinates are 33 06 06.99256 N 116 34 44.35360 W. You can plug them into Google Maps just like that, or convert them to decimal degrees or any other format you prefer to work with.
Found another one! 35 04 39.19664 -116 23 30.73359 The satellite imagery is much worse on this one, but you can still make out the arrow. http://goo.gl/maps/YSdSb

How does one get permission to go on this private property? It is owned by the Afton Canyon Ranch. We stopped nearby, but did nor venture on the property. We did go to the one at Halloran Springs, east of Baker. We drove all the way to the arrow itself.
I visited this site with my son, here are the pics.

That’s a very nice find! Thanks, Laura!
We visited this sight on Thursday, It was awesome, very hard to get to but if anyone needs direction via foot let me know
That’s great! Please feel free to submit your directions here along with any other information you have.
Any info. on beacons around the Cheyenne, WY area?
The two closest (from the NGS database) would probably be MO1117 and MO1218.
You can actually see the concrete arrow from MO1218 if you look at the Google Maps satellite view of its coordinates: http://goo.gl/chu1qr
I am about 99% positive MO1218 (the one visible on Google Earth) is on private land. If you scroll out you can see an easy way to access it from North Crow Rd in Curt Gowdy State Park. I have been up that road though and there is a no trespassing sign at a cattle gate about 1 mile north of Happy Jack Rd.
MO1117 appears to be just east of exit 29 off I-25 on an unnamed access road, but from Google Earth anyway there doesn’t appear to be anything there (which seems odd to me since the only structure within about a 1.5 mile radius is a single farmhouse).
Located arrow for MX1005 – SEATTLE SAN FRAN AIRWAY BCN 27. http://goo.gl/maps/YCg5Q
Near Gazelle, CA in Siskiyou County
That’s a great find, Jeff! It shows that San Francisco-Seattle Beacon 27 has had two locations. I haven’t yet determined which is earlier. I’ve hiked up to the MX1005 location (0.32 statute mile SSW of the I-5 interchange) and only saw some broken concrete and a fragment of a beacon bulb base. Pretty well cleaned up! Your arrow find is 0.94 mile WSW of MX1005. Have you been there? Easily accessible?
Oh my goodness! I went on a map search of the one for Nevada, Washoe County, Derby Dam…and I found it! I can’t believe it. Here is where it is: 39°34’43.15″N 119°29’24.55″W
This was so much fun! I think I might look for others when I have the time. Let me know if you’d like me to follow up if I find any others.
It is exciting! This is the same feeling I get when I search for old survey markers. Thanks for searching and locating the arrow, and yes, I’d love to see others that you might find!
Just for the record, this is the arrow near KR1596: http://goo.gl/oi6l53
Logs on Geocaching.com indicate that the beacon itself is destroyed.
Hey… I live by this one! I am so excited…I want to go check out the arrow. Is this one the Derby Dam arrow? Fits in regard to the coords nearby to the Derby Dam! Thanks Zhanna.
We just did a story on Salt Lake City UT KUTV Channel 2 news last evening about the arrows and beacons.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_phcaAMPZaE (Link updated October 15, 2016. Reason: old link was broken; site visitor found working link on YouTube.)
Thank you, Dan! The story was nicely done and the arrows and beacons are a fascinating part of history still largely unknown to most people. I’ve compiled some sources, including a link to the story, here: Airway Beacons, Navigation Arrows Featured on KUTV
You might update the video link to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_phcaAMPZaE It sesems the station has taken the story down from the kutv web site.
Thank you, Kaarin! Done.
Unless I missed something I find no mention of the intact beacon on top the mesa east of Trinidad, Colorado and northeast of Raton, New Mexico.From the air everything appears to be intact with the generator shed and a small building for workers who may get stranded on top the Mesa when it snows. The tower appears to have a beacon on it and everything seems to be in good shape. I have photos if you’re interested. From the New Mexico side the Mesa is Bartlett Mesa.
We live in Rapid City SD and often travel to the SW on I-25. We are really interested in historical sites having followed the Oregon trail and Lincoln Highway on previous road trips. We would like to incorporate visit s to existing airway beacon sites on future trips. Do you have coordinates for this location and is there a drivable road to the location? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
I hiked up there in May 2014. Everything about this beacon is intact, including the beacon itself and the directional lights. I have photos for anyone interested. email me at email@example.com
Is there anyone who would be interested in purchasing an historic 1929 acetalyne powered
course marker airway beacon? It has been completely restored.
I am interested-can you send pictures/details?
Question submitted via contact form from Wendel H.:
Subject: Santa barbara mesa beacon 406
a USGS topo map of santa barbara dated 1942 and updated 1952 shows an airway beacon located by a dot within a circle and numbered 406. A friend now 74 years old remembers watching the flashing light from his second floor east facing bedroom as a child. I have found the probable location of the beacon and a shed is still there which might have housed the generator. I have a 1947 aerial photograph with a tapered shadow which would be the tower. It is in the right location. What do you know about this beacon in the city limits of Santa Barbara. When was it built. When was it abandoned. The location presently has a tall pole with a whip antenna said to be used by the California Highway Patrol next to the generator shed. I can send you pictures. thanks, Wendel
I was unable to contact you using the email address provided. The message was returned with the note “Your mail could not be delivered because the recipient is only accepting mail from specific email addresses.” I will post my reply here:
Thanks for contacting me! So far I haven’t been able to find any information online about this beacon. I do have some topo maps of that area. Can you give me the approximate coordinates of the shed you found, or a general description of where the beacon was (which section of the city, nearby street names, etc.)? Could you send me the aerial photo as an attachment? That might help me narrow down my search. Please send any other photos or images you have, too.
I’m even wondering if the “406” might indicate an elevation benchmark at the site since 406 feet is a possible value for height in the area. If there is a benchmark at the spot, its description might give us more information about the beacon.
Looking forward to hearing back from you,
I was amazed this morning when a friend showed me a map of the Airway Light Beacons in the east San Francisco Bay area all the way to Reno. Archaeology and the establishment of true history is my passion. I fly all over the western states and have often thought about how our predecessors live and what record they left for us. After a career as a research Physicist, I am now back into Archaeology. I found my way to the B-17 that went down on a trip frm Reno to the Bay area; a nice hike, but poorly described w/o Long & Lat. I fly the Bay Area to Truckee quite often and now I have something to look for on the ground.
A suggested search, air and ground, welcomed.
Would you please contact me off list? I have extensive information about a beacon in the San Francisco area. Thanks.
E-mail sent. Thank you!
Not sure how to contact you off list, Sorry! Do you have info. about a beacon in the SF area that you can share? I’d love to learn more.
There is a 10 million candlepower beacon at the summit of Mount Diablo, about 30 miles east of San Francisco. I was one of the managers of the project. Here is the story:
We have just finished an extensive restoration of the beacon, and it is ready to light on December 7, Pearl Harbor Day.
Hi Zhanna – wondered what you’d been up to since we corresponded last – this new website format is great! We have proceeded to create a regional airways-slash-aviation museum here at Grants Milan (KGNT) airport, per web link http://www.cibolahistory.org/aviation-heritage-museum.html
Our tower was donated by City of Williams AZ from the airport – FR0867 – and was formerly on Beacon Hill east of there as site LA-A 38B. However, this site is not the one listed from 1936 on NGS sheet FR0857. That location now has no trace of a beacon, altho it is shown on the old topo map. It may have been moved at some early date to Beacon Hill, where the tower leg stubs, pole line, and generator shed foundations below still exist. This site is at
35-15-24.89 / 112-03-51.72.
We are still searching for a beacon and course lights for our museum. What little we have found has ownership issues, of course. Our 24″ and 18″ replicas won’t last forever.
Best – Steve O.
Thank you for your comment and the information about your museum! It appears to be coming along great. I will check out the beacon location you mention. Best of luck finding a beacon and lights!
Are you saying that the location
N 35 15′ 24.89″ W 112 03′ 51.72″
has tower leg stubs, pole line, and generator shed foundations?
I know of another site near Williams not listed here that appear to have a beacon foundation.
Steve – I would like to contact you about a beacon/arrow restoration project in Idaho. I would like to learn from your experience. The phone number I have for you didn’t work and I don’t have your email address. If possible, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I went to summer camp from 1959 through 1962 at Foothills Ranch in Northern New Mexico. The Thompson Ranch airway beacon was visible from the ranch and every two weeks the camp took all of the campers to Starvation Peak where we used the ladder and rope system that was permanently installed, climbed the peak and had lunch underneath the beacon.
I am now an FAA inspector and was recently in Clayton, NM where the airport manager told me that the airport beacon used to be the Glorieta Pass beacon. Since there is no record of a beacon in Glorieta Pass, the Thompson Ranch beacon seems to be the closest possibility.
Those summers were some of the best days of my childhood and it is great to think that I have found the beacon that was visible every evening from the ranch.
Would there be anything on the beacon that would identify it? I intend to return to Clayton in the not too distant future and would love to verify that this is the same beacon.
Thanks for your great story! I sent you an e-mail about checking the NGS datasheet for descriptive information as well as coordinates, in case you decide to hike to the beacon. If you do locate the beacon again, feel free to send photographs and any other documentation you have.
Interesting! I have searched for information about the Thompson Ranch for several years. If it is the same family, we were close friends with the family. Visited them often. while we lived in Zuni. My father, Ruben Lanz, worked in the Kelsey Trading Post in Zuni from 1936 into 1941. About 1939 or 1940 some government people came to Zuni wanting to install a navigation beacon on the mountain top east of Zuni. I would have been about 6 or 7 years old at the time. My father along with me and Zuni guides climbed to the top of the mountain so it could be surveyed and a location established for a navigation beacon. If anyone wants to contact me directly, about the Thompson family or the beacon, please do. My email is: email@example.com.
Have info for Imperial County Airway Beacon (DB1497). I am currently restoring to original condition for Imperial County Historical Society. Lites & rotation mechanism restoration complete. Tower is painted & erected. Conduit, wiring & switching progressing. Expect complete operation this year.
Thank you for the update, and for all your work on the beacon! Please post back if you have photos, a website, or any other documentation or updates to share because I would love to add them to the site.
Could you contact me about your experience of restoring the beacon for the Imperial County Historical Society. I am working on a similar project for the Idaho Historical Society and would like to talk to you about lessons learned.
