On the Air February 2013 Issue

On The Air: February 2013

Like many folks, I usually come up with the perfect rejoinder 15 minutes after an event, but while eastbound over the US Midwest this summer, I was spot on:
Bizjet @41k: “Center, we’re looking at something ugly in front of us. Request deviation.”
Center: “Right or left?”
Bizjet: “Right looks better... But we can take a bigger deviation left.”
... After few moments and a successfully coordinated deviation:
Me: “You are looking in the mirror, aren’t you?”
Bizjet (laughing ): “Yes you are right. The ugly thing up ahead is me. That’s what my wife says.”
After that, nobody on the frequency could stop laughing.
