For whomever wondered about yelling "Stuck Mike" - think about that for a second...
Indeed: the one and only person who needs to hear it is the only one who absolutely can not!

I am reading the autobiography of an American WW2 fighter pilot, he tells the story of a fellow squadron member with a stuck mike during a combat mission.
The offending pilot would talk to himself during the mission so everyone got to hear is "inner monologue"  including "what's this idiot doing" when a wing man pulls along side to try and clue him in on the stuck mike.  Very funny.
That's great...  Could you give the author and title of that book?

Definitely sounds like they're listening to music!  I'm sure the public would be shaking their heads at this, but I gotta just laugh this one off.  Yes, they're deep into the arrival phase, and yes, it's anything BUT a sterile cockpit, but they're having fun and getting the job done at the same time.  I'm sure this happens wayyyy more than just in this one example.

Thanks for the laugh.  Love the "it flies like a -700...only different".  Love how you can hear the autopilot disconnect ("Dive! Dive!") and the trim wheel spin, too.

Best one I've heard in a while...definitely better taste than the good ol' "Gringos Grannies and Grandes" clip from a year or two ago.
