Overheard in IFR Magazine's "On the Air"

Many years ago, in Calgary:

Snooty voice:
"Ah, tower, Air Canada Two Oh Four. This will be a fully automatic landing if you'd care to observe."

[later ...]

Imitative voice:
"Ah, tower, this is Canadian Six Seventy Five [rival]. This will be a fully manual landing, if you'd care to observe."
