[Avid-L2] Re: OT: Does anybody shoot pushes and pulls anymore?

You want scary turn the scanner to the aircraft freqs. I nearly soiled myself when I heard Burbank Tower talking to a private plane saying that if they were heading for Santa Monica they were going 180 degrees in the wrong direction. Or commercial pilots saying to the tower they don't see it on the map and I could hear the rustling of the maps in the cockpit. But the funniest was a conversation from the tower where I couldn't hear the pilot on the tower. The controller said in a loud voice, "Son, don't ever hesitate to ask that question!" I never figured out what the question was but by the tone of the controller it was a dozy.
