On a recent flight north of Florida, a Pilatus checked in with Jacksonville Centre:

"Jack Centre, Pilatus N1234. FL 250, smooth ride, outside air temp -24 degrees Celsius."

Jacksonville Centre:
"Pilatus N1234, Jacksonville Centre. Roger. Recommend not rolling down your windows."

Pilatus (after a short pause):
"Say again for N1234."

"It was an attempt at a joke."
