Magnetic Pole Shift Affects Tampa Airport

RFSSystems writes “I thought this was an amazing and rather rare phenomenon and wanted to share. ‘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.’ It appears that the shifting poles have began to affect air travel in a somewhat modest way. Could this also be the explanation for the falling/dead birds this week?” I hope the gradualists are right, but scenarios for rapid magnetic pole shift are fun to think about.
