I don't think anyone has mentioned it yet, Bill but I think due to the
barren landscape surrounding the strip, pilots are using your house to
help line up for final. It's a great navaid for them but may be
problematic for both of you when the tower goes up. When it's all said
and done, you'll no-doubt get your tower up with the FAA's blessing but
you may light it for some piece of mind.
Keep us updated.
