another one of those wacky pilot conversation threads!

The following are accounts of actual exchanges between airline pilots
and control towers around the world. Remember that the conversations are heard by all pilots on that frequency in that area.


===============================================


Tower: "Delta 351, you have traffic at 10 o'clock, 6 miles!"


Delta 351: "Give us another hint! We have digital watches!"


===============================================


"TWA 2341, for noise abatement turn right 45 Degrees."


"Centre, we are at 35,000 feet. How much noise can we make up
here?"


"Sir, have you ever heard the noise a 747 makes when it hits a
727?"


===============================================


>From an unknown aircraft waiting in a very long takeoff queue:
"I'm f...ing bored!"


Ground Traffic Control: "Last aircraft transmitting, identify
yourself immediately!"


Unknown aircraft: "I said I was f...ing bored, not f...ing
stupid!"


===============================================


O'Hare Approach Control to a 747: "United 329 heavy, your traffic is a
Fokker, one o'clock, three m iles, Eastbound."


United 329: "Approach, I've always wanted to say this... I've got
the little Fokker in sight."





===============================================


A student became lost during a solo cross-country flight.


While attempting to locate the aircraft on radar, ATC asked,
"What was your last known position?"


Student: "When I was number one for takeoff."


===============================================


A DC-10 had come in a little hot and thus had an exceedingly long
roll out after touching down.


San Jose Tower Noted: "American 751, make a hard right turn at
the end of the runway, if you are able.


If you are not able, take the Guadeloupe exit off Highway 101,
make a right at the lights and return to the airport."


===============================================


There's a story about the military pilot calling for a priority
landing because his single-engine jet fighter was running "a bit
peaked."


Air Traffic Control told the fighter jock that he was number two,
behind a B-52 that had one engine shut down.


"Ah," the fighter pilot remarked, "The dreaded seven-engine
approach."


===============================================


Taxiing down the tarmac, a DC-10 abruptly stopped, turned around
and returned to the gate. After an hour-long wait, it finally took
off.


A concerned passenger asked the flight attendant, "What, exactly,
was the problem?"


"The pilot was bothered by a noise he heard in the engine,"
explained the flight attendant. "It took us a while to find a new
pilot."


===============================================


A Pan Am 727 flight waiting for start clearance in Munich
overheard the following: Lufthansa (in German):
"Ground, what is our start clearance time?"


Ground (in English): "If you want an answer you must speak in
English."


Lufthansa (in English): "I am a German, flying a German airplane,
in Germany. Why must I speak English?"


Unknown voice from another plane (in a beautiful British accent):
"Because you lost the bloody war."


===============================================


Tower: "Eastern 702, cleared for takeoff, contact Departure on
frequency 124.7"


Eastern 702: "Tower, Eastern 702 switching to Departure. By the
way, after we lifted off we saw some kind of dead animal on the far
end of the runway."


Tower: "Continental 635, cleared for takeoff behind Eastern 702,
contact Departure on frequency 124.7.
Did you copy that report from Eastern 702?"


Continental 635: "Continental 635, cleared for takeoff, roger;
and yes, we copied Eastern... we've already notified our caterers."


===============================================


One day the pilot of a Cherokee 180 was told by the tower to hold
short of the active runway while a DC-8 landed. The DC-8 landed,
rolled out,
turned around, andtaxied back past the Cherokee.


Some quick-witted comedian in the DC-8 crew got on the radio and
said,


"What a cute little plane. Did you make it all by yourself?"


The Cherokee pilot, not about to let the insult go by, came back
with a real zinger: "I made it out of DC-8 parts. Another landing
like yours and I'll have enough parts for another one."


===============================================


The German air controllers at Frankfurt Airport are renowned as a
short-tempered lot. They not only expect one to know one's gate
parking location, but how to get there without any assistance from
them.


So it was with some amusement that we (a Pan Am 747) listened to
the following exchange between Frankfurt ground control and a
British Airways 747, call sign Speedbird 206.


Speedbird 206: "Frankfurt, Speedbird 206 clear of active runway."


Ground: "Speedbird 206. Taxi to gate Alpha One-Seven."


The PA 747 pulled onto the main taxiway and slowed to a stop.


Ground: "Speedbird, do you not know where you are going?"


Speedbird 206: "Stand by, Ground, I'm looking up our gate
location now."


Ground (with quite arrogant impatience): "Speedbird 206, have you
not been to Frankfurt before?"


Speedbird 206 (coolly): "Yes, twice in 1944, but it was dark, --
And I didn't land."


===============================================


While taxiing at London's Gatwick Airport, the crew of a US Air
flight departing for Ft. Lauderdale made a wrong turn and came nose
to nose with a United 727.


An irate female ground controller lashed out at the US Air crew,
screaming: "US Air 2771, where the hell are you going?! I told you
to turn right onto Charlie taxiway

You turned right on Delta! Stop right there.
I know it's difficult for you to tell the difference between C and
D, but get it right!"

Continuing her rage to the embarrassed crew, she was now shouting
hysterically: "God! Now you've screwed everything up! It'll take
forever to sort this out! You stay right there and don't move till I
tell you to!

You can expect progressive taxi instructions in about half an hour,
and I want you to go exactly where I tell you, when I tell you, and how
I tell you! You got that, US Air 2771?"

"Yes, ma'am," the humbled crew responded.

Naturally, the ground control communications frequency fell
terribly silent after the verbal bashing of US Air 2771.

Nobody wanted to chance engaging the irate ground controller in her
current state of mind. Tension in every cockpit out around Gatwick was
definitely running high.

Just then an unknown pilot broke the silence and keyed his
microphone, asking: "Wasn't I married to you once?"

===============================================
