Thread drift:

Myself and a colleague a few years ago used to inclue odd words which had no possible context in executive reports to see how closely read they were. Ones I remember using and which went uncommented on were 'kitchen', 'giraffe' and 'baboon' :D

Anyone got any good words I can try to get in a NOTAM????


Egregious.

I heard Trump use it the other day. I take it he didn't write the speech!

Ive done something similar, adding certain popular catchphases from various ads /TV shows if the name is mentioned, or song lyrics. Another good one if working with germans is adding amusing made up qualifications after your name on emails (they like to add all diplomas & qualifications etc to their emails).

Will Cardiff ATC now be instructing us to 'remain outwith controlled airspace'? Or when necessary "informing us we are now inwith controlled airspace :-)


:thumright:

<continuing drift :oops: >

'Inwith' is also perfectly valid Scots :) With advent of new UK government in 1997 with many Scots Ministers, ISTR both 'outwith' and 'inwith' started appearing in central government publications, including White Papers, and internal correspondence eg inwith MoD. Previously, the only Scots expression commonly seen in official writing was the epistolatory signature 'Yours Aye,' which I was taught many decades ago on a mandatory military 'official writing' course was acceptable in a Letter (but not a Despatch), but only from a self-identified Scot :wink:

[Welsh aside deleted as I realised I'd misremembered the needed prepositional insert for the context, which would have made the Welsh longer :oops: ]

We had a blocked runway with 87 movements on Saturday. 4 were on the airport arr/dep board. How comforting to know that ‘mere’ bizjets and GA get the same ATC service and protection as fare paying pax.

We used to do the same when going to meetings with customers. Try to weave words like "gusset" or "boob-tube" into the discussion. It was very dangerous because it was often impossible not to fall about laughing :)
