This is a temperature gauge in the boiler room between Hangars 3 and 4 at Floyd Bennett Field, New York City’s first municipal airport.  Opened in 1930, the airport was the starting point for a number of notable events, including record-breaking flights from aviators such as Amelia Earhart, John Glenn, and Howard Hughes.  Perhaps the best-known story from the airfield was that of Douglas “Wrong Way” Corrigan - a pilot who was denied permission to fly to Ireland, but “accidentally” flew over the Atlantic on a flight booked for California - he and his plane were sent back to America by boat.  Floyd Bennett field was decommissioned and abandoned in 1970.

From their announcement:

For various reasons, Bass Coast Festival is banning feathered war bonnets, or anything resembling them, onsite. Our security team will be enforcing this policy.

We understand why people are attracted to war bonnets. They have a magnificent aesthetic. But their spiritual, cultural and aesthetic significance cannot be separated.

Bass Coast Festival takes place on indigenous land and we respect the dignity of aboriginal people. We have consulted with aboriginal people in British Columbia on this issue and we feel our policy aligns with their views and wishes regarding the subject. Their opinion is what matters to us.
