A humorous way to start the week.
All of us in India has experienced a disruption in our lives due to “VIP movement”.
This video from Jenf777 on a humorous exchange between the air traffic controller at Boston’s Logan airport and the pilot of American Airlines 573. After hearing the exchange, all I could think, we need to get some more pilots like him in India, may then Indian airports will not be shut down for hours whenever there is a “VIP movement”.
ATC: American 573 Roger. Uh…let’s see. Hold your push [back]. Stay with me. You’ll be number three to push …… due to VIP movement …… the airport’s stopped.
AA573 Pilot: Due to what??
ATC: Uh..VIP movement.
AA573: What’s that?
ATC: That’s a Very Important Person that’s moving and nobody else can move.
AA573. We’re more important than they are.
ATC: I wouldn’t argue with you, but you’ve got to stop right there for now.
Another ATC controller (which the AA pilot can hear): Air Force One [The US President’s plane] Boston Tower good morning. Winds three-two-zero at one three, runway four right, cleared for take-off.
Air Force One pilot: Air Force One cleared for take off four right, thanks.
What would be your rejoinder to the American Airlines pilot if you were the air traffic controller? Post a comment. Keep it humorous in the spirit of the story.
