Problem is that some FISOs fancy themselves as controllers!
And so do some A/G Operators

The email of my local A/G unit is atc******@btconnect.com

It's cringe-worthy…!

Got it!

The A/G at an airfield not far from me has a notice on the door in large capitals "No Admittance to the Control Tower....etc"

Where's the tippex?

This reply got me thinking, not being a local and all.

Cut and paste into Google atc******@btconnect.com

Voila first result. Made me laugh.

It will be interesting to see how it develops with any final report and what the RT was because the prelim AAIB report on the Blackbushe jet accident would seem to suggest the pilot was distracted or wasn't fully aware of traffic already established in the circuit.

Pull what, my comment was made in jest - you need to lighten up a bit.
Bob, if its alright by you I would like to be who I am rather than who you think I should be. I flew with you 40 years ago and I remember you being a very serious young man and the first professional acting pilot I had come into contact with, please dont destroy that illusion for me.

From the (allegedly) offending airfield's website:

FizzydrinkMeat Radio is frequency is 1**.*** and is an Air Ground Communication Service (AGCS) and as such is NOT Air Traffic "Control". However, the generic term "ATC" is widely used as everyone seems to understand this abbreviation! Even XXX Radar, YYYYYYY, ZZZZZZZ, TTTTTTTT, PPPPPPP, etc., still call us on the phone and ask for "ATC"! Perhaps we should just use "AT"! We get numerous calls asking for us to correct the "C" part so before you write in again the answer is the same - all we can do is repeat the above!
