Air Traffic Controllers.

by Daniel Russ on April 15, 2014




In the 1970s, a Pan Am 727 flight was waiting for start clearance in Munich overheard the following:

Lufthansa (in German): “Ground, what is our start clearance time?”

British Ground Controller: “If you want an answer you must speak in English.”

Lufthansa (in English): “I am a German, flying a German airplane, in Germany. Why must I speak English?”

British Ground Controller: “Because you lost the bloody war.”
