Stories for Pilots

Some of these might get REALLY specific, like you'll only get them if you fly in a specific area of the country, or to a particular airport. Pardon the explanation.

Fly more, so you can get the joke. :)

1. World's Shortest Vector
We were direct ELA. ATC says: "Turn left 360 (90 degree turn), when you get to that heading, turn back direct ELA. Vectors for spacing."

2. Flying into IAH, we had just gotten vectors direct JEPNI. The CA says something like 'I guess we aren't getting 27 (runway) any more. Oh well.' I snap back and say "No, JEPNI." (Oh well is the phonetic pronunciation of a waypoint on one of the other approaches into IAH.)

3. Yetlink We're flying in Mexico, talking to their ATC. The CA checks off to talk to the pax, and says: "I'm off, you got one? (Comm radio 1)." Me: "I got Juan." (Get it? One/Juan?)
