Heard over Lake Michigan this summer:
TBM 123: “Chicago Center TBM 123 with an unusual request when you have a minute.”
Chicago Center: “TBM 123 go ahead.”
TBM 123: “There is a SkyWest aircraft on the frequency, just behind me, also en route to Grand Rapids, and I am the very proud father of the new First Officer on board. Would you mind if I said hi?”
Chicago Center: “TBM 123 the frequency is yours.”
TBM 123: “Hi sweetheart, fly safe.”
Chicago Center: “Way to go, dad.”
Many hurrahs and other comments followed.
