    I had a 3 foot long toy plane of the SR71 Blackbird as a child and WOW Do I Miss It. A beautyful plane, even in the rain.

    Here are some "cool jets" but they are not doing anything cool at all. These pics are from AMARC at DMAFB Tucson AZ, usually known as the boneyard. Sure is a bunch of history here.

    A Pan Am 727 Flight Engineer waiting for start clearance in Munich, Germany. Listening to the radio since he was the junior crew member. This was the conversation he overheard:

    Lufthansa: (In German) "Ground, what is our start clearance time?"

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

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

    Beautiful English Accent (before ground could answer): "Because you lost the bloody war!"


    The German air controllers at Frankfurt Airport are 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 PanAm 747) listened to the following exchange between Frankfurt ground control and a British Airways 747 (whose call sign was "Speedbird 206") after landing:

    Speedbird 206: "Top of the morning Frankfurt, Speedbird 206 clear of the active runway."

    Ground: "Guten morgen! You vill taxi to your gate!"

    The British Airways 747 pulled onto the main taxi way and slowed to a stop.

    "Speedbird, do you not know vare you are going?"

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

    Ground (with some arrogant impatience): "Speedbird206, haff you never flown to Frankfurt before?"

    Speedbird 206 (coolly): "Yes, I have, in 1944. In another type of Boeing, but just to drop something off; I didn't stop."

    While taxiing at London Gatwick, the crew of a US Air flight departing for Ft. Lauderdale made a wrong turn and came nose to nose with a United 767. 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 Cs and Ds, but get it right!"

    Continuing her tirade to the embarrassed crew, she was now shouting hysterically: "God, you've screwed everything up! It'll take forever to sort this out! You stay right there and donÕt 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 frequency went terribly silent after the verbal bashing of US Air 2771. Nobody wanted to engage the irate ground controller in her current state. Tension in every cockpit at Gatwick was running high. Then an unknown pilot broke the silence and asked: "Wasn't I married to you once?"

    ______________________________________________________________________

    A DC-10 had an exceedingly long rollout after landing with his approach speed a little high.

    San Jose Tower: "American 751 heavy, turn right at the end of the runway, if able. If not able, take the Guadalupe exit off Highway 101, make a right at the lights and return to the airport." ______________________________________________________________________

    Unknown aircraft: "I'm ****ing bored!"

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

    Unknown aircraft: "I said I was ****ing bored, not ****ing stupid!" ______________________________________________________________________

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

    Eastern 702: "Tower, Eastern 702 switching to Departure. By the way, as 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 have already notified our caterers...." ________________________________________________________________

    O'Hare Approach Control: "United 329 heavy, your traffic is a Fokker, One o'clock, three miles, eastbound."

    United 239: "Approach, I've always wanted to say this... I've got the little Fokker in sight."

    _____________________________________________



    It was a really nice day, right about dusk, and a Piper Malibu was being vectored into a long line of airliners in order to land at Kansas City.

    KC Approach: "Malibu three two-Charlie, you're following a 727, one o'clock and three miles."

    Three-two-Charlie: "We've got him. We'll follow him."

    KC Approach: "Delta 105, your traffic to follow is a Malibu, eleven o'clock and three miles. Do you have that traffic?"

    Delta 105 (long pause and then in a thick southern drawl): "Well... I've got something down there. Can't quite tell if it's a Malibu or a Chevelle, though."

    Poland's Worst Air Disaster occurred today when a small two-seater Cessna 152 plane crashed into a cemetery early this afternoon in central Poland. Polish search and rescue workers have recovered 826 bodies so far and expect that number to climb as digging continues into the evening.

    The pic of the jet sticking out of the bushes made me think that would be the only line of defense for state troopers trying to stop the gumball rally.

    Just hide on the side of the interstate and hit the afterburners when an Enzo or Stradale blows by...

    The plane in the picture below was used by the CIA to fly operatives and equipment right into civilian airports. It was painted in various civilian livery during use. Geneva Convention, what Geneva Convention!
