When one pilot parks his winged steed facing a certain way (into the wind or not), the following aviators will follow suit and park in the same location and direction.

Baaaa

And if no one is parked to "demonstrate" the proper place to park - the pilot will always seem to park on the taxi line in the middle of a HUGE ramp.

I've gotten into the habit of parking a flight training plane over in the visiting aircraft area, just to show folks where to go.

Back when I was flying behind round engines, the rule of thumb was; 2 big oil slicks, DC 3 parking. One big oil slick, DHC 3 parking.
Now;
if the asphalt is eroded by leaking fuel, Metro parking.

I've seen this happen almost everywhere I go.. Sometimes I wonder why the genius who started it decided to park that way.

I remember one day shutting down on a nice piece of MASSIVE tarmac with nothing else around.. sure enough some doofus comes in and parks almost wing tip to wing tip with my plane. Even though theres maybe 1000ft of open space. Go figure...

Say whaa? It's cause pilots are a neat, organized bunch that would rather take a tidy, good looking ramp over a safe and practical ramp any day! :rolleyes:
