An extreme example of pilot jargon
This is from an actual FAA transcript of a
fighter pilot talking
to a local tower, presumed to be from somewhere in the
Southern United States.
This is chrome-plated stove-pipe triple-nickle eight ball,
angels eight, five in the slot, boots on and laced, I
wanna bounce and blow.
Roger, you've got the nod to hit the sod.
The translation goes something like this:
Pilot: This is silver jet,
height 8000ft, 5 miles inbound (to
the runway), gear down and locked, request permission
for a touch and go.
Tower: Roger, cleared for touch and go.
The transcript has appeared in many aviation magazines
and probably quite a few websites.
