      Cruising along at FL450, radio chatter is just airliners checking onto the frequency and asking for ride reports. So, one guy (Delta, I think) checks on and has a conversation with the Center controller about light chop at FL350.

      The next thing we hear is "Folks, from the flight deck... we've just been told there might be some bumps ahead, so we'll be turning on the seatbelt sign soon blah blah blabbity blah blah yadda yadda....... and for those of you on the left side of the aircraft if you look out your windows the town you see down there looks like, uhhhh, Page, Arizona. Blah blah blah, yadda." {click}



      About 1 second after he unkeyed the mic, we hear:

      "Outstanding!"

      "Awesome!"

      "Couldn't have done it better myself."

      "CHECK YOUR MIC!"

      "Well, I guess we all know where, Page, Arizona is now!"



      ...then my captain looks at me and says "Who the **** points out Page, Arizona?!?"

      I was flying through SFO's Bravo a few years back, and heard

      "United XXXX Cleared for takeoff"

      After his reply to the tower, he broadcasts:

      "Flight attendants prepare for departure"

      Tower frequency was full of

      "I'm ready"

      "Ready in the back!"

      "I'm ready!"

      "We're ready too"

      Tower comes on:

      "Thanks guys, can I move some airplanes?"

      "Sorry"

      "Sorry sir"

      "Sorry"

      "Sorry"

      This happens often. The next best one is responding to radio calls over the PA.

      It is pretty entertaining to hear that stuff. Fairly frequent.

      Another one a few weeks ago:

      {loud squeal as two people try to check on at the same time}

      "Blocked!"


      {Center and somebody else transmitting at the same time}

      "Blocked!"


      {Center and somebody else transmitting at the same time}

      "Blocked!"


      Center, obviously pissed off: "ok, NOBODY SAY 'BLOCKED' ON MY FREQUENCY!!!! Cactus1234, climb maintain FL320"

      {Cactus1234 responding and somebody else checking on frequency at the same time}

      "Blocked!"

      The best one I heard was going up the west coast in OAK's airspace.


      Captain: "Ladies and gentlemen welcome aboard our flight to Honolulu. We are climbing out of 18 thousand for 34 thousand feet and atc has told us to expcet a smooth ride. I will go ahead and turn off the seatbelt sign you are free to move about the cabin. However if you are sitting down I'll ask that you keep your seatbelt fastened for your safety. Currently it is sunny and 80 degrees in Honolulu which is much nicer than that cool fog we left in San Francisco."

      Background noise (FO) "oh ****"

      Captain: " So uh thank you for flying Southwest"

      Other a/c 1 "nice try"

      Southwest a/c "we don't even go there"

      Other a/c 2 "good one Delta"

      ^^^ That ones pretty good.

      A friend of mine was flying past OAK a few years ago and was talking with NorCal departure. A kid from JAL Academy was flying out of OAK to go back to Napa in a Bonanza. His last instruction was to fly heading 360, and he was flying due west.

      "Bonanza 123AB, fly heading 360."

      "Roger...360"

      A few minutes later

      "Bonanza 123AB, say heading."

      "Bonanza 123AB, 360."

      "Bonanza 123AB, I'm showing that you're heading west. Turn right, heading 360."

      "Roger 360"

      Another few minutes go by

      "Bonanza 123AB, what was my last instruction to you?"

      "Sir, I don't..."

      "Bonanza 123AB, turn right 90 degrees, and fly heading 3....6....0."

      "Ah sir, I...."

      "Bonanza 123AB, put your little airplane to N and get out of my airspace."

      "Roger....360...."

      And he continued to fly West.

      ^^^^ will bet money that he was twisting the heading indicator card to 360, not the bug.

      Approach: "American 1583 you are number one for 8 left, keep the speed up as fast as you can you have company following you"

      AA1583: "Roger, we're balls to the wall 'Merkin 1583"

      Approach: "American 1287 you are number two following company 7 miles ahead spacing is good keep the speed up as long as you can"

      AA1287 (female voice): "American 1287, we're wiiiide open !"

      SWA 755: "Miami Center Southwest 755 flight level 360 direct DEFIX looking for lower"

      Miami Center: "Southwest 755, he's not here, keep looking"

      Long awkward silence ...

      Miami Center: "Southwest 755, descend and maintain FL 210"

      Another one I heard I have the recording somewhere I don't remember exactly the words but it goes something like this:

      Cadet 123 (callsign for Comair training out of Sanford FL) with a thick Asian accent: "Sanford tower, Cadet 123 is on a 9 miles fin.... correction, on a 8 miles final for run.... correction, 7 miles for final ..... correction, cadet 123 is 5 and a half mile final for runway XX on visual approach .... correction, 5 miles final"

      Sanford Tower: " Cadet 123 wind XXX at XX cleared to land runway XX and please do not tie up my frequency"

      Cadet 123: "Roger, wind XXX at XX cleared to land runway XX ..... errr [something unintelligible] for the errrr [mumbling] the errr ..... frequency Cadet 123"

      Sanford Tower: ""

      Another one from Comair, a friend of mine told me that one when he used to fly there.
      They were on the ramp doing runups on their plane when one of their single engine plane comes in, taxis on the ramp, the instructor comes out and the planes taxies back out, it was that girl's first solo. She calls tower, gets cleared for take off, takes off, and at 500ft:

      Cadet 125: "Sanford Tower Cadet 125"
      Twr: "Cadet 125 go ahead"
      Cadet 125: "Sanford Tower, Cadet 125, climb checklist complete"
      Twr: "Great ..... what do you want me to do ?"
      Cadet 125: "Sanford Tower .... Cadet 125 .... errr .... student pilot"
      Twr: ""

      How many of you have ever heard this song?




      I'm religious about monitoring 121.5 ('guard') in flight. It's been useful more than once, I've relayed messages for others a few times, and then there's this....

      So, we had refueled in KLNK today and were back at FL430 heading west. Very little radio chatter, and nothing on guard which I was monitoring on COM2. I had gotten up at 03:30 this morning, and just cruising long my brain was starting to zone out when all of a sudden.... "IIIIIIII love, little baby ducks!" {click}



      For a minute I was like "not sure if actually heard that.... or just hallucinating". I guess someone found it amusing to hold their iPhone/iPod/whatever up to the mic and hit 'play'. Definitely the weirdest **** I've heard on the radio so far.

      "Circleville Traffic, Guard XXX 5 miles north inbound for runway... whatever the hell it is."

      I am flying right now with a "frequency guardian". If anyone talks on 121.5 he is on it 4 milliseconds later saying "GUAAARRRDD" and God forbid someone makes a PA on center frequency. Drives me nuts.

      I wish he was as diligent with his hand flying and descent planning as he is with guarding all frequencies at all times.

      Tell your FO to "lurk moar" Monitoring it is his job, policing it is not.

      Actually, I've just thought of a diabolical way to troll him, if you're interested...
