Short Final: A Gentleman And A Scholar

0

I was flying over central Kansas when I overheard Center clear a jet pilot “direct destination.”

The pilot, grateful, confirmed the clearance and added the compliment, “You’re a gentleman and a scholar.”
The controller, apparently unfamiliar with the phrase, replied, “Say again?”
The pilot, simply replied, “Thank you. Have a great day.”
