Friday Humor – ATC style

I may be called a damned Yankee, but there are times that I do appreciate my American brethren to the South….y’all!

(H/T: TMEW)

Atlanta airport

You gotta love this one even if you’ve never lived in the South.  Some of you will enjoy this more than others – Southerners can be so polite!

Atlanta ATC: "Tower to Saudi Air 911 — You are cleared to land eastbound on runway 9R."

Saudi Air: "Thank you Atlanta ATC. Acknowledge cleared to land on infidel’s runway 9R – Allah be Praised.

Atlanta ATC: "Tower to Iran Air 711 –You are cleared to land westbound on runway 9R."

Iran Air: "T hank you Atlanta ATC. We are cleared to land on infidel’s runway 9R. – Allah is Great.

Pause:

Static..

Saudi Air: " ATLANTA ATC – ATLANTA ATC"

Atlanta ATC: "Go ahead Saudi Air 911?"

Saudi Air: "YOU HAVE CLEARED BOTH OUR AIRCRAFT FOR THE SAME RUNWAY GOING IN OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS. WE ARE ON A COLLISION COURSE. " INSTRUCTIONS, PLEASE.

Atlanta ATC: Well bless your hearts. And praise Jesus. Y’all be careful now and tell Allah "hey" for us — bye y’all!
