Rather snooty capt: "Good morning tower BirdseedXXX requesting the information"

TWR: "Good morning BirdseedXXX, surface wind light and variable, Runway in use is 23, temperature +15, dew point +5, QNH 1016.

Rather snooty capt: "Can you be a bit more specific about the wind tower?"

TWR: "Certainly, 270 to 090, 1 knot gusting 2"!

I overheard this conversation one late night while over the Med west of Crete:

Athinai Control: Airline XXX you are cleared direct to ABC point.

Airline XXX: standby please

Athinai Control: Don't you have a map?

Cruising round the WILLO hold one fine afternoon not so long ago, a UK charter 737 checks in:

ABC123 - "Afternoon *** this is ABC123 descending FL110 to HOLLY."
ATC - "ABC123 roger, route HOLLY, WILLO to hold."
ABC123 - "Roger, Hollow Willy to hold!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

How we laughed!!!!!!!

Non ATC but Kinda Funny....

Same pilot as mentioned earlier ( Fast Taxi )

Pilot again taxiing like a demon to the hold for departure in an ATR

For some reason has to stop suddenly. Enter stewardess who was doing the demonstration against the cockpit door.

Now spreadeagle on the centre console Pilot looks down cooly asks " Suppose a blow job is out of the question ..? " And then continues to taxi.....

Cruising eastbound through Maastricht towards Germany:-

Maastricht Controller - "Route ABC - DEF - GHI due to military activity. Don't worry, they're not at war, they're only practising.."

Heard yesterday on Manchester Arrival ATIS at about 1030z

"This is Manchester Arrival information Delta.....

and then in the background someone loudly shouts:

"F*CK OFF"

The guy reading the ATIS just carries on....very professional!

Anyone else hear it?

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

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

Cool

Track V two nights ago - another American asking for a ride report asked if anyone had any nibbles yet.......... Sorry, couldn't resist saying that we had peanuts and pretzels if that was OK.
