(b) in the case of radiotelephony shall consist of the word ‘SECURITY’, repeated 3 times."

I thought it was officially "Securité, Securité, Securité "

BTW, I do still here this in a marine context (and the French pronunciation) when on my boat, to warn of large ships entering or leaving the channel.

Well, with more and more integrated services, nothing says there can't be women as loadies or drivers either!

Sorry all - I admit I was only considering civil transport for all three of these - not to disrespect those in blue or green painted aircraft!

Haha no problem.

We have a female Navigator and one female C-130 Commander in South Africa, but the loadmasters are still men only - due to the heavy lifting etc.

I used to think that SCATANA was an unnecessary thing of the past .... until September 11, 2001.

I will never forget being over the Canadian prairies calmly sipping a coffee when Winnipeg ATC broadcast ...

"Attention, SCATANA is now in effect, I repeat, SCATANA is now if effect, all aircraft must last as soon as possible while the Department of Defence takes over control of North American airspace". I looked at the F/O, blinked, and asked "Did I really just hear that?"

For the record, SCATANA has since been replaced with ESCAT.

That's a good one, I was supposed to go up for a flight that morning during my instructor rating. Everything happened before the flight, but the flight school got the fax indicating the SCATANA plan was in effect. I made a copy and have kept it as one for the personal history books.

Great idea! I laminated and mounted the Data-link.

Our crew ... me, the F/O and three F/As still meet every year on September 11. It was an awful week to be away from home, that was made easier with company.
Just because I stopped arguing, doesn't mean I think you are right. It just means I gave up!

I guess I always heard the B-36 version:

Captain: "Feather three!"
Flight Engineer: "Which three?"

Related excerpt from the Wikipedia article on the B-36:

Much more than other large aircraft powered by piston engines, the B-36 was very prone to engine fires, to the extent that some crews changed the phrase "six turning, four burning" into "two turning, two burning, two smoking, two joking, and two unaccounted for."

Decimal in lieu of point. "Contact xxx approach now on 131 decimal 75."

Maybe in the US, but decimal is certainly used in other countries. Just head up to Canada and you will hear decimal instead of point. Just one of the many differences between US ATC and other nations around the world.
It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems with just potatoes.

"decimal" is the ICAO standard.
