My all time favorite story EVER.
Base Ops was waiting to escort a B-52 to 8R (they had to tell them where and when to turn, because if they went down the centerline of the taxiway,
the wheels on the wingtips would take out every taxi light on either side). He was listening to Clearance so he'd know when the BUFF was ready to go,
when he heard an exchange something like this:
Clearance: Japan 017, cleared Honolulu to Narita (included the check points)
JAL: Roger, Japan 017, cleared Hickam to Narita.
Clearance: Negative 017. Cleared HONOLULU to Narita.
JAL: Roger, Hickam to Narita.
Clearance: JAL, you're not departing from Hickam, you're departing from Honolulu. Why do you keep saying Hickam on readback?
JAL: No can say Honoruru very good. Can say Hickam very good!
Clearance: Roger 017, cleared Hickam to Narita.
He laughed about that one for hours.
