Heard Last Weekend At Palo Alto While I Was Inbound From Leslie Sal
Heard last weekend at Palo Alto while I was inbound from Leslie Salt:
PAO Twr: "Mooney 23D, traffic is a Cherokee just entering downwind from
the left 45."
Mooney 23D: "Uhhh, tower, 23D...only traffic I see is a Cessna."
PAO Twr: "Mooney 23D, follow your traffic directly ahead, an, um,
inverted Cherokee just abeam the numbers." :)
I was inbound from a nearby airport in a Tomahawk, while at the same time our other Tomahawk was inbound from the practice area.
We called up almost at the same time the same distance from the airport....

Airborne Humor *** Any More Complaints? *** The controller working a busy pattern told the 727 on downwind to make a 360 (do a complete circle, usually done to provide spacing between aircraft).
The pilot of the 727 complained, "Do you know it costs us two thousand dollars to make a 360 in this airplane?...
Tower: Hotel-1, cleared to hover taxi, stay clear of Runway 16, Cessna in the pattern doing touch and go's.
