Actual exchanges between pilots and control towers

Tower : "Delta 351, you have traffic at 10 o'clock, 6 miles!"
Delta 351: "Give us another hint! We have digital watches!"

Tower: "TWA 2341, for noise abatement turn right 45 Degrees."
TWA 2341: "Center, we are at 35,000 feet. How much noise can we make up
Tower: "Sir, have you ever heard the noise a 747 makes when it hits a 727?"

From an unknown aircraft waiting in a very long takeoff queue: "I'm
Ground Traffic Control: "Last aircraft transmitting, identify yourself
immediately! "
Unknown aircraft: "I said I was bored, not stupid!"

O'Hare Approach Control to a 747: "United 329 heavy, your traffic is a
Fokker, one o'clock, three miles, Eastbound."
United 329: "Approach, I've always wanted to say this....
I've got the little Fokker in sight."

A student became lost during a solo cross-country flight.
While attempting to locate the aircraft on radar, ATC asked, "What was your
last known position?"
Student: "When I was number one for takeoff."

A DC-10 had come in a little hot and thus had an Exceedingly long roll out
after touching down.
San Jose Tower Noted: "American 751, make a hard right Turn at the end of
the runway, if you are able.
If you are not able, take the Guadeloupe exit off Highway 101, Make a right
at the lights and return to the airport."

A Pan Am 727 flight, waiting for start clearance in Munich , Overheard the
following: Lufthansa (in German):
"Ground, what is our start clearance time?"
Ground (in English): "If you want an answer you must speak in English."
Lufthansa (in English): "I am a German, flying a German airplane, in
Germany .
Why must I speak English?"
Unknown voice from another plane (in a beautiful British accent):
"Because you lost the bloody war!"

Tower: "Eastern 702, cleared for takeoff, Contact Departure on frequency
Eastern 702: "Tower, Eastern 702 switching to Departure.
By the way,after we lifted off we saw some kind Of dead animal on the far
end of the runway."
Tower: "Continental 635, cleared for takeoff behind Eastern 702, Contact
Departure on frequency 124.7.
Did you copy that report from Eastern 702?"
BR Continental 635: "Continental 635, cleared for takeoff, roger; And yes,
we copied Eastern... We've already notified our caterers."

One day the pilot of a Cherokee 180 was told by the tower to hold short of
the active runway while a DC-8 landed.
The DC-8 landed, rolled out, turned around, and taxied back past
Some quick-witted comedian in the DC-8 crew got on the radio and said, "What
a cute little plane. Did you make it all by yourself?"
The Cherokee pilot, not about to let the insult go by, came back with a real
"I made it out of DC-8 parts. Another landing like yours And I'll have
enough parts for another one."

While taxiing at London 's Gatwick Airport , the crew of a US Air flight
departing for Ft. Lauderdale made a wrong turn and came nose to nose with a
United 727.
An irate female ground controller lashed out at the US Air crew, screaming:
"US Air 2771, where the hell are you going? I told you to turn right onto
Charlie taxiway!
You turned right on Delta! Stop right there. I know it's difficult for you
to tell the difference between C and D, but get it right!"
Continuing her rage to the embarrassed crew, she was now shouting
"God! Now you've screwed everything up!
It'll take forever to sort this out! You stay right there and don't move
till I tell you to! You can expect progressive taxi instructions in about
Half an hour, and I want you to go exactly where I tell you, When I tell
you, and how I tell you! You got that, US Air 2771?"
"Yes, ma'am," the humbled crew responded.
Naturally, the ground control communications frequency fell terribly silent
after The verbal bashing of US Air 2771. Nobody wanted to chance engaging
the Irate ground controller in her current state of mind. Tension in every
Cockpit out around Gatwick was definitely running high.
Just then an unknown pilot broke the silence and keyed his microphone,
"Wasn't I married to you once?"
