-------------------------
Student Pilot: "I'm lost; I'm over a big lake and heading toward the big E."

--------------------

-------------------------------
A deer is on the runway... so...
Tower: Cessna XXX cleared for take-off.
Student: "What should I do? What should I do?"
Inst: "What do you think you should do?" (think-think-think)
Std: "Maybe if I taxi toward him it'll scare him away."
Inst: "That's a good idea." (Taxi toward deer, but deer is macho, and holds
position.)
Tower: Cessna XXX cleared for take-off, runway NN.
Std: "What should I do? What should I do?"
Inst: "What do you think you should do?" (think-think-think)
Std: "Maybe I should tell the tower."
Inst: "That's a good idea."
Std: Cessna XXX, uh, there's a deer down here on the runway(long pause)
Tower: Roger XXX, hold your position. Deer on runawy NN cleared for
immediate departure. (Two seconds, and then -- I presume by coincidence --
the deer bolts from the runway, and runs back into the woods.)
Tower: Cessna XXX cleared for departure, runway NN. Caution wake turbulence,
departing deer.
It had to be tough keeping that Cessna rolling straight for take-off.
-----------------------

Approach: "303, unable the ADF right now for traffic saturation."
Pilot: "OK, approach. State my intentions."
-----------------------
BB: "Barnburner 123, Request 8300 feet."
Bay Approach: "Barnburner 123, say reason for requested altitude."
BB: "Because the last 2 times I've been at 8500, I've nearly been run over
by some bozo at 8500 feet going the wrong way!"
Bay: "That's a good reason. 8300 approved."
------------------------------

340?"

me a 1000 feet per minute, please?"
--------------------------
Tower (in Stuttgart): "Lufthansa 5680, reduce to 170 knots."
Pilot: "This is here like Frankfurt. There is also only 210 and 170 knots...
But we are flexible."
Tower: "We too. Reduce to 173 knots."
---------------------------

Tower: "OK, then you are cleared for take-off."
--------------------------------
Tower: "Aircraft on final, go around, there's an aircraft on the runway!"
Pilot Trainee: "Roger" (pilot continues approach)
Tower: "Aircraft, I said GO AROUND!!!"!
Pilot Trainee: "Roger"
The trainee doesn't react, lands the aircraft on the numbers, rolls to a
twin standing in the middle of the runway, goes around the twin and
continues to the taxiway.
------------------------
Tower: "Mission 123, do you have problems?"
Pilot: "I think, I have lost my compass."
Tower: "Judging the way you are flying, you lost the whole instrument
panel!"
-----------------------
Controller: "CRX600, are you on course to SUL?"
Pilot: "More or less."
Controller: "So proceed a little bit more to SUL."

True story from my first (real life student) flight to a towered
airport. I had practiced an answer to everything except, of course,
what they actually ending up asking.

Me: "Stewart Tower, Cessna 1234 ten miles southwest, 2000 feet, inbound
landing with information Juliet, student pilot."

Tower (pleasantly): "Cessna 1234, roger, what's your heading?"

Me: "Ummm, Stewart, I'm heading towards you!"

Tower (muffled laughter, then...): "I meant your _magnetic_ heading!"

Me (embarassed): "Oh. zero six zero, tower."
