Short Final


Heard on the tower frequency at an airport that will remain undisclosed to protect the innocent:

Cessna 12345:
“Tower can you have regional jet ABC meet us on Unicom freqency for a personal message?”

Jet ABC:
“Tower, tell the Cessna we are a professional crew on a schedule and we don’t have time for idle chit chat.”

Cessna 12345:
“O.K. Tower, you may want to tell that professional crew they left the landing-gear lock pin in the nose gear. Have a nice day!”
