Geocache Description:

This is my number one favorite spot to watch planes land. As a kid
growing up in this area I loved to go and watch the airplanes land.
It's still fun today to watch the plans land or do touch and goes.
While you are waiting for the next plane check out the many
radar towers.

Many scientists contributed to the development of radar before the
Second World War. The British were the first to fully exploit radar
as a defense against aircraft attack. Watson-Watt and his assistant
Arnold Wilkins realized they could use the technology they were
developing to detect approaching enemy aircraft. Once they'd proved
the basic equipment could work, they constructed an elaborate
network of ground-based radar detectors around the south and east
of the British coastline. Britain's radar defenses, called the
"Chain Home", gave an advantage over the German air force. It
played an important part in the allied victory. A similar system
was developed at the same time in the United States. The post-war
years have seen the use of radar in fields as diverse as air
traffic control, weather monitoring, astronomy and road speed
control.

Congratulation to Mr. Knob with the FTF.
