Absolute rubbish.
Another thread gone tangential.

Which, of course, reminds us of 'tangential fade'.

Last few posts are better than most of the posts in Humour

I would go with CHIRP. The name, Confidential Human Factors Incident Reporting, says it all and the guidelines are here

I've probably missed a lot of people stating the obvious, but why not ring the unit and speak to the guy once you're on the ground?
You could complain I'm sure, but wouldn't the more constructive thing to do be to ring and speak? Sure, if the guy continues to act like a tit, then report, but why not give him a chance?
It's the best way to find out what was behind his attitude, instead of simply trying to punish him. Makes you the bigger man.

Of course he could always employ a barrister to prove he wasn't even on duty at the time, or you are at fault for not following the correct procedures when you complained.

I've stopped reading most of the posts as it got slightly off task, however....

Did you land at this airfield? Why not pop and see the FISO and talk it over? That way it's problem resolved (or at least should be!) and you can get on with your flying without worrying about it.

Every now and again you'll come across someone a bit ar£ey on the radio, but it happens. Just learn from the unfortunate experience and move on.

I wish you all a happy 2013
