The following is an
incomplete list of airway beacons drawn from the NGS database of survey
marks. Most if not all of these beacons no longer exist, but their
locations and remains are of historical interest.
The letter following the Monumented/Observed date indicates:
O = Observed
* = First history is undated, date is for first dated report or
First history is dated after subsequent history report
The letter following the last report date:
D = Last reported "Destroyed"
N = Last reported "Not Found"
P = Last reported "Poor"
S = Last report indicates "See Description"
* = Last report is prior to a previous report
Red text indicates a value that is not present on the NGS datasheets but was
determined by Zhanna's research. PIDs are clickable links to the updated NGS
