Short Final


Returning to Princeton, New Jersey in a Seminole, I was proudly clipping along at 140 knots and can only assume that my deep voice and professional-sounding tone led to us appearing to be more than we were:

Seminole Two Two Eight: “New York approach, Seminole Two Two Eight, 5,000.”

Approach: “Seminole Two Two Eight, Morristown altimeter 30.08. Proceed direct Solberg, maintain 5,000. Were you given any speed restrictions? If so, you can resume normal speed.”

Seminole Two Two Eight: “Direct Solberg, 5,000, Two Two Eight. And we’re a Seminole. This is normal speed.”
