While I would find it funnier that way, I have to agree with most of
the posters here. It is just fine the way it is for an audience
without aviation knowledge. Sure, if you were going to post it in a
rec.aviation group, you should make the changes you suggest. But it
works the way it is for a broader audience.

Having been born and raised in the South, it's sort of second nature
to me, but Yankees sometimes don't realize that "Bless his/her/your

It would be funnier if she was on the way to Atlanta airport. to pick up
someone and his airplane was on runway 9 and diverted to runway 27L.

I think the joke would be way funnier if you had Saudi Air 711 make the

when he died, so, for 511, it would be no big deal.

"Saudi Air five one one heavy. Left two zero. Cleared visual niner right.
"Iran Air seven one one, turn left heading tree zero zero. Descend and

two seven left. Good day."
"Iran Air seven one one. Left tree zero zero. Two thousand five hundred. Say
"Iran Air seven one one, cleared the visual two seven left. Two seven lima."
"Iran Air seven one one. Unable two seven lima. Missed approach."
Quite frankly, I can't find the joke in it. Killing 600 noncombatants on
political and ideological principles is my kind of fun, but I don't see the
joy or humor in it. At least, nothing on the same level as poking some fun
at the non-swimming ex-senator from Illinois. Are we now all out of jokes on
the PC-safe victim grouops? You know, the lawyers, blondes, retards, beer
swilling boomhauers, or sexually repressed and stereotyped clergymen?
