Think that bar was Duffy's Tavern in Denver. Had our office above the tavern.

The severing of air rights is a fascinating topic.
QUESTION - If a party intends to sell a tract of land for which the "air rights" have already been reserved, should the deed cite that the space above the surface of the earth is "Gone with the Wind" ??
And hey, what was the name of that old movie?

Yes the deed should reflect that the air rights were reserved by prior owners. I am not sure about the wording – but I like the phrase "Gone with the Wind"
All true. I just assumed your question was with respect to a ranch in wind farm country.

In the petroleum industry we have had @100 years of litigation to sort this out and still have issues, however I'm thinking one day, if it hasn't already happen, that winds aloft will be purchased, traded, or sold just as minerals are today, and that surface owner rights may be similar to those of our industry. The surface might be sub-servant to "winds aloft", the surface owners might be paid damages for ROW, roads and turbine sites, and yet not receive "royalties".
I appreciate all of your remarks, answers and the hints of sarcasm, certainly there will be groups that will be against the wind.
