i heard a good one from a senior controller at work today:

i had heard it before on the internet but i found the true source...

back in the old days Piedmont was a major airline with a considerable hub at BWI.  Jets go the left side (33L), and props on the right (33R).   well,  this controller was sequencing a C130 with a few Shorts.  controller says, "baxter53, reduce speed to 110kts, following shorts traffic 4 miles ahead."  C130 pilot comes back, "what do you think the stall speed is in this thing?"  to which my fellow controller's trainer says, "i dunno, but i bet your co-pilot knows"   grin

dr.final, yes i think you are right...it seems that errr ahhh wants to hear replays...you have located the mole!
Yo yo yo, I am just doubtful that the alleged incident happened. And if indeed it did happen, what was the context? I spoketh the Lord's name in vain last night & I could see someone excitedly running here to say how I was mixing church & state but I certainly had my reasons!

Whoever was working JFK final around 1945ish was pretty dern funny.  We were "cleared for the veeeeezual approach."  What a pleasant experience.  NY air traffic controllers are awesome.

Not much the faa can do about NY atc.  Staffing is horrible and no one wants to work there.  Once you certify in one of the big facilities up there you are garanteed to be stuck there for awhile..

A guy who just retired was noted for saying that & some of us copy that as an homage.
