Short Final…


There’s a club for that, too…

An exchange overheard between an Australian charter company and ATC. The company was in mid-April flying a DC-3 carrying a wedding party at 2000 feet over Sydney harbour while the nuptials took place. The flight’s pilot made sure ATC was aware and ready to coordinate a return to the airport…

DC-3: …and, Sydney, we’ll soon be finished with the ceremony and looking for a higher altitude for the return.

[soon after]

DC-3: (Identifies self) … So that’s it. She does, he does, and that much is done.

ATC: Very well.


You’re cleared for the return at 5280 feet. (Laughing) And tell them to make it snappy.
