In a famous SR-71 Blackbird stealth aircraft story,_ Los Angeles Center reported receiving a request for clearance to FL 60 (60,000ft). The incredulous controller, with some disdain in his voice, asked, "How do you plan to get up to 60,000 feet?
The pilot (obviously a sled driver), responded, "We don't plan to go up to it, we plan to go down to it." He was cleared.
-------------------------------------
Tower: "Delta 351, you have traffic at 10 o'clock, 6 miles!"
Delta 351: "Give us another hint! We have digital watches!"
------------------------------------
The pilot of a small Cherokee 180 was told by the tower to hold short of the runway while a Delta MD80 landed._ The MD80 landed, rolled out, turned around, and taxied back past the Cherokee._ Some quick-witted comedian in the MD80 crew got on the radio and said, "What a cute little plane. Did you make it all by yourself?"
Our hero the Cherokee pilot, not about to let the insult go by, came back with: "I made it out of MD80 parts._ Another landing like that and I'll have enough parts for another one."
-----------------------------------
There's a story about the military pilot calling for a priority landing because his single-engine jet fighter was running "a bit ragged."
Air Traffic Control told the fighter jock that he was number two behind an eight engined B-52 that had one engine shut down.
"Ah," the pilot remarked, "the dreaded seven-engine approach."
------------------------------------
A student became lost during a solo cross-country flight. While attempting to locate the aircraft on radar, ATC asked, "What was your last known position?"
Student: "When I was number one for takeoff."
--------------------------------------
Taxiing down the tarmac, the 757 abruptly stopped, turned around and returned to the gate. After an hour-long wait, it finally took off.
A concerned passenger asked the flight attendant, "What was the problem?"
"The pilot was bothered by a noise he heard in the engine," explained the flight attendant," and it took us a while to find a new pilot."
--------------------------------------
"Flight 2341, for noise abatement turn right 45 degrees."
"But Center, we are at 35,000 feet. How much noise can we make up here?"
"Sir, have you ever heard the noise a 747 makes when it hits a 727?"
