Funny heard on the radio the other day
Here in MHT, there are a few foxes that run around on the airport. They've been here for a long time, and never have caused any problems. One of their main routes take them right accross a busy taxiway, and they are sometimes spotted by airline crews. Not much is done about it, but ATC will let everyone that might be in the area know about the critters. So the other night, I heard this exchange on the radio....
