Short Final for 1 September 2008

From's weekly ezine of things aviating....Overheard on a scanner recently at St. John's International Airport (CYYT):An inbound commercial flight was getting the bad news from the tower that conditions for the active runway were 200 feet and 1/4 mile in heavy fog. Controller and aircraft discussed alternatives for a few minutes before the pilot, knowing his passengers were going to be disappointed by a diversion, asked the tower wistfully:Commercial Pilot:"Any chance it'll change soon?"Tower (after a brief pause):"Yeah, maybe August."Commercial Pilot:"I don't think we've got that much reserve fuel."Doc Bryant
