Has anyone noticed the "call sign" on Channel 5's helicopter? It's N345TV.
All aviation things have N registration numbers in the US, doubling as
airplane "license plates" and call signs for radio communication. Anyway,
this is the first "vanity" plate I've seen for a helicopter. The first 4
digits are in bordered harder-to-see figures while the last 3 digits are in
bold black "5TV". Since there's little space to put an advertisement on a
helicopter, as almost all available space is taken by the 'license plate',
this is a clever way the make the 'plate' advertise the station.
