Overhead on SoCal Approach frequency near a busy Southern California airport last year:
"SOCAL, Cherokee N12345 is with you, with X-ray for the ILS to 26R."
"Roger. N12345, fly heading 280 and descend to 3,000."
"SOCAL, N12345. We have a problem. We seemed to have lost our squawk code. Can we have another one?"
"N12345, would you look around the cockpit? Sometimes stuff falls on the floor."
