BOS ATC Question

Wed Aug 30, 2006 12:19 pm

Don't know if I'll get any responses to this, but I was listening to the BOS Tower ATC stream this morning and several times heard controllers and/or pilots say something like "mocha hagati"... was wondering if anyone familiar with BOS patterns might have an idea of what this might correspond to?

Some additional info: the controller who said this phrase very often signs off by saying "asta la vista"

That's Boston John. Well-known among pilots who fly into/out of BOS often. He does a lot of things like that, makes fun of the New England accent, among other things...

Go to the discussion forums on liveatc.net and look around, there are plenty of humorous audio clips of Boston John.
