At the Charlottetown (CYYG) airport last summer, while doing my run-up in my 172, an air Canada flight had just finished copping their clearance when they saw an osprey fly by with a large flounder in its talons. They contacted the tower:
"Charlottetown Tower, Air Canada 123."
"There's an osprey that just flew overhead carrying a fish!"
Charlottetown Tower: (without missing a beat) :
"Have him contact the tower."
This kind of made my day in this very friendly maritime town.
