I happened accross these two gems on an aviation web site. They must have been around for a while as there would be no WW2 pilots still in commercial service, but they brought a smile to my face!
See what you think:
Speedbird 206: “Good morning Hamburg Ground, Speedbird 206 clear of the active runway.”
Ground: “Guten morgen! Willkommen in Hamburg, you vill taxi to your gate, ja!”
The British Airways 747 pulled onto the main taxiway and stopped.
Ground: “Speedbird, do you not know vare you are going?”
Speedbird 206: “Stand by, ground, I’m looking up the gate location now.”
Ground (with impatience): “Speedbird 206, haff you never flown to Hamburg before?”
Speedbird 206 (coolly): “Yes sir, I have. It was 1944, at night, we were evading Fokkers, and I didn’t land to taxi!”
and in fairness to our German colleagues:
Lufhansa Pilot to co-pilot, forgetting that the frequency was open: “We used to come up the Thames, and turn over here for the docks….”
Another voice on the frequency: “ACHTUNG SPITFEUR!!”
