Old Mountain Dew Bottle Found

FYI, this week, our work camper Tom found something interesting in the woods near the new member lounge: a old, sealed glass bottle of Mountain Dew.

Interestingly, these bottles show a cartoon character named “Willy the Hillbilly” shooting at a target. Unfortunately, the bottle we found is a bit too weathered to show this clearly.

Based on what I read on the Mountain Dew Wikipedia page, I estimate this bottle was made 1948 through 1969.

Please enjoy the image below, also from Wikipedia.

LARGC on KRON TV

Yesterday afternoon (18 OCT 2018), Gabe Slate from KRON TV 4 news visited the range. At 8pm, the station aired a segment.

The segment “FAA to pilots: Be careful when flying over Los Gatos gun range” may be found online at < https://www.kron4.com/news/bay-area/faa-to-pilots-be-careful-when-flying-over-los-gatos-gun-range/1534579244 >

The FAA notice that prompted the story was issued by the FAA on 17 OCT 2017,  and may be found by searching for the word “FIRING” at < https://pilotweb.nas.faa.gov/PilotWeb/notamRetrievalByICAOAction.do?method=displayByICAOs&reportType=RAW&formatType=ICAO&retrieveLocId=KSJC&actionType=notamRetrievalByICAOs >.

According to Gabe Slate, one of the reporters in the studio is a pilot and recently saw the notice from the FAA.
