Words In A/C Registration

Mon Apr 19, 2004 11:20 pm

This is a bit lame but... do you know any a/c registrations that makes up a word?

Example: LH A319 "D-AILY"

Huge Viking. Ok it's not in the reg, but it's still pretty funny. "Huge" is an ancient Norse name.

I'd love to see a reg with WTF in it! Also RTFQ or RTFC. Those are favored phrases my instructor uses.
Example:
-I forget to start my timer on a divert: "Zach, whiskey tango foxtrot, man. WHAT THE F**K!"

RTFQ= Read the F**king question.
RTFC= Read the F**king checklist.

edit: found one.
