On the PPRune forum. Probably won't mean much unless you a. like planes b. are British. But Hey! it made me smile.

Quote:
Summer 1967, Vauxhall Sports Day 1nm west of Luton's runway 08 threshold. Dragon Rapide holding for a para drop. Bristol Britannia on final for rwy 08.

Controller: "G-xx, do not drop, do not drop, I say again, do not dr . . Oh dear, I see you have"

Controller to Britannia: "parachutists dropping 1nm on final approach"

Britannia pilot, starting to weave: "It's OK, I was at Arnhem"
