Ahhh, this one again....
Well, I can give you two from my experience....
First one is my favorite. My dad and I flew ourselves down to Oakland in October of 2003. While taxiing, the ground controller asked our destination and aircraft type. We told him we were just gonna do a little bay tour, and that we were a Cessna 182.
After take off:
Tower: Cessna 7226 November, what is your destination?
Us: We were hoping to take some people on a bay tour if that is ok, sir.
Tower: Us? What aircraft type are you?"
Us: Uh, we are a 182
Tower: Hum...Well, someone has you as a 152...Who did you tell you were a 182?
Us: The ground controller
Tower: I see...Well, just stay below 3,500, and you'll be fine, have fun, switch to xxx.xx!"
Upon our return to Oakland, he was still in a good mood:
Us: Oakland Tower, Cessna 7226 November is 5 miles south with Juliet to land"
Tower: Ahhh! 7226 November, welcome back to the party, enter right downwint 27R
Us: Yep, we're back, right downwind 27R, 26 November
As we were about mid feild:
Tower: Cessna 226 November, call your base, cleared to land 27R
Us: We'll call our base, cleared to land 27R, 26 November
Now, I was flying at this point, and after we called our base, and were lined up with the center about 3 miles out, I get the call
Tower: Cessna 7226 November, can you move it to 27L, I still have a damn truck on the runway doing a sweep for FOD"
My heart jumped pretty quick, and I did a quick check behind us to make sure no one was being dumb..
Us: Uh, sure tower, bumping to 27L 26 November
After touch down:
Tower: Very nice, 7226 November, looked like a nice soft landing as well?
Us: Ah, you flatter me, sir. You just owe me one for the last minute bump to 27L
Tower: All right, take your next right, and call ground .7. Have a good one.
Us: We'll exit at our next left and give ground a call, thanks for letting us play today.
The last one was when I was on a solo up to the Portland area. A Citation flew by me about 1,500 feet or so below me and a bit to the west.
Seattle Center: Cessna 25444, traffic is fast moving, south bound at 9 o'clock
Me: "Uh, it just passed me about 10 seconds ago..."
Center: .......Oh. Sorry.
