In the departure and instrument approach charts for KSAN, they reference Lindbergh Tower" for KSAN tower. Does this mean that we should be calling up "Lindbergh Clearance" to pick up our flight plan?

    $\begingroup$ @CrossRoads that is an approach frequency listed on an approach plate. Nothing to do with CD. $\endgroup$

Lindbergh is used as an identifier shortcut because "Lindbergh Field" is the official name of the airport. So I would call in with "Lindbergh Clearance Delivery".
