Not long ago during my instrument training, my very accomplished instructor and I were doing a VOR 14 Approach at Mansfield Lahm Regional Airport (KMFD). After completing the missed approach the tower controller came on the radio to say, “That was a very good job on the approach.”
Somewhat surprised my instructor said, “Gee they have never said that when I’ve made an approach.”
I comforted him by telling him what a great instructor he is and that the tower controller really knows his stuff.
We had great fun with this at our home base with our pilot friends.
