San Marcos, Texas (KHYI) was busier than normal this recent November weekend due to Formula 1 racing in Austin when the following exchange was overheard:

KHYI Tower:
"Mooney 1234N, cleared for take-off, Runway 13."

Mooney 1234N:
Tower, Mooney 1234N.  Can I land first?

KHYI Tower:
Mooney 1234N, cleared to land.
