Tuesday Trivia Returns!

Yes, it has been a long while since I posted a Tuesday 777 Triva question, however, I have decided to broaden the trivia horizons beyond the 777.  I will however, continue to post aircraft specific questions - especially with the Triple Seven to make up for lost time.

I want to re-launch this column with a very important trivia question that I've always wanted to ask not only the sports community but more so, especially, the aviation community.


TUESDAY TRIVIA
for
Aviation Enthusiasts and Beyond

May 21st, 2013


Which international tennis stadium is named after a veteran pilot and war hero?   (Hint: an annual tournament is held in this venue every year with the same name as the stadium.)

And for extra credit:
IS THIS REAL OR PHOTO-SHOPPED?  IF SO, WHY?


I may post an expedited answer sooner than next Tuesday, however, please revisit next Tuesday for the answer (again) and next question!


Jeremy.

  3. "Roland Garros Stadium" Named after Stade Roland. He was first pilot to solo across the Mediterranean Sea, invented a machine gun, and in WWI became an Ace for shooting down 5 enemy planes!

    1. Bingo! Yes, I posted about this last year on the other site, but wanted to see if everyone remembered. It is a fascinating fact and once again, proves that tennis is a pilot's sport.

  4. Thanks for the extra clue, wouldn't have got it otherwise. Roland Garros. Paris. The photo I think is photoshopped because of the relative positions of LFPG & LFPO and from what I remember there's a minimum of 3000ft over European stadiums.

    1. Paul, glad I could be of assistance. I am thinking the same thing on the photo, however, I think it is an American stadium. We shall see day after tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by and commenting with your responses!
