|Overheard in IFR Magazine's "On the Air"|
At some now-forgotten backwoods class G airport, I was in the run-up area trying to unfoul a plug by leaning the crap out of my worn-out Lycoming 180hp engine, and, despite my anxiety over an impending $25K overhaul, I managed to catch the following on CTAF:
"Cherokee 1234, [unintelligible] ... . Please advise ..." [becomes completely unintelligible]
Another Aircraft in the Area:
"Cherokee 1234, what do you need advice on how to fly your airplane? a career choice? tips on your love life? What?"
"Ah ah how about advise your position?"
"Man, if you have to ask, you need to learn to look out the window."
I wanted to ask if any of them could advise how to keep my spark plugs from fooling.
