I'm all for naming places after people... but I think it's a bit insulting to unname something!!
 
Thanks Dan but in this case I did read the article (guilty on other posts). Naming the surrounding areas is not the same thing. Im just saying as a general thought renaming things after they have been named kind of sucks for the family. I have seen it many times (especially in sports arenas where corporate names often overtake dedicated names). That was all...
 
+Gary Rudd Please read the article again, because it is clear by both your earlier and most recent comments that you did not understand it.
 
OK then I apologize. 
 
As a kid, i remember the X-15 being the fastest, highest flying, most advanced aircraft in the world!
 
I love Neil, but I think Hugh Dryden's name should stay right where it is.
