Funny Air Traffic Controller Quotes

I normally don’t post things that typically get sent around as email forwards, but this is pretty funny.

I ran across a collection of funny air traffic controller quotes, and they’re supposed to be real even though there’d be absolutely no way to prove their validity. Even so, let’s just pretend they are because they’re way funnier that way. Here’s my favorite:

Control tower to a 747: “United 239 heavy, your traffic is a Fokker, one o’clock, three miles, eastbound.”
United 239: “Approach, I’ve always wanted to say this … I’ve got the little Fokker in sight.”
