Recommended Posts

From those wonderful folks that bring us Aweb.com, it's Short Final for 16 November 2009On a recent trip in my Cirrus from KSAV to KPDK, I had this exchange with Atlanta Approach. (This was right after the FL-GA football game where the Gators won ... again.)ATL:"N267CP, you are cleared to PDK via the TRBOW8 arrival. Proceed direct from present position to TRBOW."N267CP (me) :"N267CP cleared direct TRBOW for the TRBOW8. Are you sure that shouldn't be renamed TEBOW for the beating that your Bulldogs took?"ATL:"N267CP, one more remark about the beatdown, and I will amend your clearance to IAH, LAX direct PDK!"N267CP "N267CP O.K. TRBOW8 it is!"ATL:"Smart man."Doc Bryant

Well with my New York/Memphis/desert accent I,d say "turrrrbow eight" like a turbowjet. But if this Sid/Star is in Florida, it's probably named after Tim Terbow the Florida Gator quarterback and people from there would call it the "Terrrrbow Eight. :( Capt Tall
