Heard on the Detroit approach frequency while flying just north of Detroit City Airport one Sunday evening:
"Airliner XXXX, turn left heading 350. Direct Flint when able."
"Left three-fifty, direct Flint."
"Airliner YYYY, proceed direct Salem when able."
"Airliner YYYY — hey, Dave, is that vou? How's it going?"
"Yeah. That you, Bud? Just fine ..." (and other pleasantries)
"How about I go and work another frequency and let you guys chat?"
