Short Final: Tomahawk


I took off from Erie after a major front had passed through much of Pennsylvania and Baltimore and was tracking northeast across Pennsylvania. I ducked underneath the clouds and was flying IFR in mostly VMC with a few scattered clouds. I checked in with Baltimore Approach and it went like this:

Me: “Baltimore Approach, Tomahawk N1234 checking in.”

Approach (in a stage whisper): “A Tomahawk? You’re up there in a Tomahawk?”
