    Caution Shift of Earth's magnetic north pole affects Tampa airport

    No reason to be alarmed.....


    The airport has closed its primary runway until Jan. 13 to repaint the numeric designators at each end and change taxiway signage to account for the shift in location of the Earth's magnetic north pole.
    The closure of the west parallel runway will result in more activity on the east parallel runway and more noise for residential areas of South Tampa.
    The busiest runway will be re-designated 19R/1L on aviation charts. It's been 18R/36L, indicating its alignment along the 180-degree approach from the north and the 360-degree approach from the south.
    Later this month, the airport's east parallel runway and the seldom used east-west runway will be closed to change signage to their new designations.

    Wait, you mean it isn't shifting because of the loss of weight due to the ice cap melting?

    Hahahah I bet those crazy religious types come here and say that God did it to punish us. Aren't religious types silly?

    Not suprised. Remember reading about how the poles are slowly creeping into different destinations every single day.

    Yep. There's even a noticeable difference between magnetic north as presently located and north as the navigation aids show it. (since most of those navigation aids are decades old, they were aligned to magnetic north when installed and it changed over time) This is actually happening at quite a few airports.
