Overheard in IFR Magazine's "On the Air"

CTAF offers a smorgasbord of irritating communications techniques. Somewhere in California's Central Valley, I heard a pilot repeatedly report, "Turning left, final, runway 20."

After what must have been the tenth "left final," a pilot who'd obviously had it replied:

"There is no left final; there is no right final just final. It's a straight line!"
