Short Final: It's Been Done
I recently heard this at Detroit Metropolitan Airport:
Tower: “Airliner 123, left turn to heading 185. Cleared for takeoff 21R.”
Pilot: “Right turn 185, cleared for takeoff 21R.”
Tower: “That’s a left turn, 185.”
Pilot: “Left turn 185 ... that would’ve been a really long right turn.”
Tower (completely deadpan): “It’s been done.”Chris IriarteDetroit, MI
