air traffic controllers quotes...

QANTAS pilot to copilot landing at Sydney, forgetting the cabin intercom was live:
"What I need now is a cold beer and a hot shiela."
Stewardess hurries forward lest worse befall.
Chorus of passengers "Hey, you forgot the beer!"
and another
Pilot: "DAMN! That was close..."
IAD Tower: "Delta 560, what seems to be the problem?"
Pilot (catching his breath), "Near miss- was he ever close!"
IAD Tower: "Delta 560, how close was it?"
Pilot: "Well, I can tell you one thing, it was a white boy flying it."
A huge C-5 cargo plane was sitting near where a small plane was waiting to take off. The private pilot got a little nervous because the military plane was
closer than normal, and asked the tower to find out the intentions of the C-5. Before the tower could reply, a voice came over the radio as the C-5's nose cargo doors opened, saying, "I'm going to eat you." (Ack E Scharzmann)

I love these, Kae, thanks!

Seems like when I was growing up in Montana & Alberta, half the men I knew had pilot licenses & flew a small airplane (usually Cessna, Dad had an Ercoupe or Stinson at the time) out of the little airport. Lots of fun, landing on the dirt road out at the lake & 'driving' around...visiting friends by landing in the field...wonder if they still do that out there...
