Short Final

While a young second lieutenant at nav school at Mather Air Force Base in 1983, I was trundling along in a T-37 in the high teens on a training mission. I overheard the following conversation between an Air Force pilot and a controller who was apparently unfamiliar with the Northern California air space and the SR-71s and U-2s that routinely flew from Beale AFB. ... Air Force Pilot: "Oakland Approach, Air Force XX for FL600." ... Oakland Approach: "AF XX, Oakland Approach. If you can reach it, it's yours. Cleared for FL600." ... Air Force Pilot: "Roger that, Oakland Approach. Descending to FL600." ... The pilot and I just looked at each other and laughed! Only in America! -- Chris Fairchild
