I was transitioning through the Lawrence (LWM) area the other day,
when I heard a new-sounding student call up, inbound for a landing,
with his instructor sitting next to him, shouting prompts in the
background over the engine noise....
N23B: (Lawrence tower) UHHH LAWRENCE TOWER (Cessna 5123B) CESSNA 5123B
(7 miles east) 7 MILES EAST (inbound for landing) INBOUND FOR LANDING
(with) WITH (.....hotel) HOTEL!
Well, the guys in the tower didn't miss a beat!
LWM: [Supervisor yelling to the Tower position from background] (Cessna 23B)
[Tower] CESSNA 23B
(report a 2 mile right base) REPORT A TWO MILE RIGHT BASE
(runway 32) RUNWAY 32
N23B: [instructor, now on the mike] YEAH, HAW, HAW, HAW, VERY FUNNY,
REPORT A 2 MILE RIGHT BASE FOR 32, CESSNA 23B
