Short Final


Overheard while flying through the New York Class B airspace:

Pilot: Departure ABC 795 off 14L climbing to 5000′.

Controller: Is this 725 or 795?

Pilot: What did I say?

Controller: 795.

Pilot: Oh sorry, I guess this is 725.

Controller: Don’t worry about it, I mix up call signs all day.

Pilot: Yeah, but I only have one call sign to screw up.
