  • Flight to Frankfurt

    One of those things that supposedly actually happened...

    The German controllers at Frankfurt Airport were a
    short-tempered lot. They not only expected you to know your
    parking location but how to get there without any assistance
    from them. So it was with some amusement that we (PanAm 747)
    listened to the following exchange between Frankfurt ground
    and a British Airways 747 (radio call Speedbird 206) after
    landing.

    Speedbird 206: "Good morning Frankfurt, Speedbird 206 clear
    of the active."

    Ground: "Good Morning, taxi to your gate."

    The British Airways 747 pulls onto the main taxiway and
    stops.

    Ground: "Speedbird, do you not know where you are going?"

    Speedbird 206: "Stand by, ground, I'm looking up the gate
    location now."

    Ground (impatiently): "Speedbird 206, have you never flown
    to Frankfurt before?"

    Speedbird 206 (coolly): "Yes, in 1944. But I didn't stop."
