A soar­ing trib­ute

EQUUS - - Letters -

“Ponies of the South­ern Sky” (EQUUS 460) was en­gag­ing on many lev­els. Colonel Ron­ald Smith’s trib­ute to the an­i­mals of the South Pole ex­pe­di­tions--by nam­ing navigation­al way­points af­ter them---is both unique and last­ing.

In the other di­rec­tion, read­ers might find it in­ter­est­ing that the great Thor­ough­bred Cigar was named by his owner and breeder (Allen Paulson, a pi­lot and one­time owner of Gulf­stream Aero­space Cor­po­ra­tion) af­ter a nav­i­ga­tion way­point in the Gulf of Mex­ico.
