Getting a Gripen

As it’s Christmas, here’s an imaginary radio conversation:

"This is York Radio, Elvington Tower hailing aircraft at four nautical miles north west of runway zero eight, you are currently at an unsafe low altitude over a built up area, please turn one eight zero degrees and enter traffic pattern"“This is York Radio, Elvington Tower hailing aircraft at four nautical miles north west of runway zero eight, you are currently at an unsafe low altitude over a built up area, please turn one eight zero degrees and enter traffic pattern”

 

 

 

"Roger that Major Andersson. Is there anything else we can do for you?"“This is Major Stig Andersson. My Saab Gripen is inbound across the North Sea from Sweden to RAF Leeming but due to unfavourable winds I am running out of fuel and lost – thank you for your directions. I will gain altitude as traffic allows, turn and land”

“Roger that Major Andersson. ┬áIs there anything else we can do for you?”

“Yes, please have fire crew on standby and I would like some deodorant”

“Ball or aerosol”

“No, it is for my armpits!”

And if that made you laugh, why not visit Ming Ing: Powered by Volvo on this website?
