On the Air February 2013 Issue

On The Air: February 2013

At Memphis International I was taxiing my Piper to Runway 18 Center to depart during the peak of the FedEx push. Ground told me to hold short of the taxiway and to monitor Tower. After a few long minutes of chatter with departing aircraft I heard Tower instruct the Delta flight on the taxiway to give way to the Cherokee (me). Delta responded with, “What’s a Cherokee?”
I immediately opened the air scoop on my left window and stuck out my hand, to which the Delta pilot interjected, “Oh, I see him waiving at me.”
