Overheard on the radio:

Piper 1234W:
"Chattanooga tower, Piper 1234W with you at 2,000."

Chattanooga Tower:
"Piper 1234W cleared to land, runway 20."

Piper 1234W:
"Roger. Cleared to land, runway 20."

[after a pause]

Chattanooga Tower:
"Piper 1234W, you just flew past runway 20."

Piper 1234W:
"Yep, too much giddyup and not enough whoa. I'll do a 180 and catch it on the turn."

Chattanooga Tower:
"Roger. Cleared to land, runway 20."
