Short Final: 007


I recently had a long flight from Somerset, New Jersey, to Houston Southwest Texas. I don’t remember which approach controller it was, but when I got handed off to him and I checked in, he acknowledged, “Malibu 7MX, XYZ approach, altimeter James Bond.”

I wasn’t sure what I heard so I said, “Say again?”

My brain finally processed it before finishing those two words, so I laughed and followed up with “3-0-0-7, 7MX.”
