    Huh? That is something else. Never heard of anything like it. It should have been "Don't confuse Runway 15 with the others, it is the one with the Big 15 painted on it" haha.
    Seriously though they must have had some problem with people confusing them or something.

    Maybe they should paint them and try that at KLNK. People
    keep landing on taxiway Alpha instead of the runway next to
    it. They've tried everything else .. including constant reminders
    on ATIS.

    When I landed at LNK the controller asked me if I had the runway. I said yes. He said, "Well, be sure because a lot of people try to land on the taxiway here." :)

    There was a very funny one making the web rounds last year- the mechanized voice saying "MSP airport information Bravo. Tower closed. Do not attempt to land here. Winds 330 at 56 G 70. Heavy Rain. Dogs and Cats. Don't be stupid..."

    I looked at the photo of KLNK on airnav which also has a notam not to land on parallel taxi way A to 35R. In the photo the runway looks like a runway and the taxi way looks like a taxi way. How do folks confuse them?

    You can post a .mp3 file now. 1Mb size limitation.

    We're trying to keep a handle on attachments since they can overwhelm our storage space. If...when we upgrade to a bigger server, we'll re-evaluate the file types and size limitations. ;)

    ...advise controller on initial contact that you're insane.

    I'd love to hear mp3s of these...

    The only ones I've heard were like:
    "Saginaw Tower Information Juuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuliet...advise the controller you have Juuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuliet."

    And of course, everyone calling up says they have Juuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuliet.

    With information like that, a 172 is now a VTOL aircraft.

    At RHV, the tower will sometimes put on their english accent for the ATIS when information, Yank-eee, comes up. They also like information Echo-Echo-Echo.

    The controllers in the contract tower at College Station, TX (CLL) do various flavors of this on a regular basis. It's my understanding they work exceptionally long shifts (sometimes the full tower day), so I guess this is their way of putting a little pep in a not so busy day.

    A few entertaining ones here at COS:

    "altimeter three zero zero zero one" (no that is not a typo, that is what they said)

    "advise on initial contact you have information hotel. gobble,gobble" (thanksgiving day)

    "all aircraft PALLEEEAAAASSSEE readback all runway hold short instructions" (very desperate sounding)

    "visibility five fog, temperature a balmy three degrees, dewpoint minus one"

    "temp -22... Numerous aircraft have reported an illusion on final to runway 17L. Appears to be a grassy area East of 17L and appears to look like a runway. Use caution."

    Another one I didn't get completely but went along the lines of "wind 020 at 45 gust 79 please think first before untying the ropes everyone"

    I kept the one for MSP, it's about 600Kb. I'm not sure how to attach here, so I'll e-mail it to whoever wants it.

    I would guess it was a warning that you may want to leave you plane snug in it's tie down that day.

    The intent was blatantly obvious from their tone of voice. I meant I didn't get the exact wording on it when I wrote it down hours later.

    During the presidential election campaign, AV Flash reported that the ATIS at Green Bay, WI, said something like:

    ...on initial contact advise the controller that you have information kilo. I'm Green Bay Tower, and I authorize this message...

    There's some dorky guy here at CHA that loves to do the Echo thing...

    "And you have information Echo Echo Echo Echo Echo " with each echo getting softer.

    Ok that is EXTREMELY funny but -- not work friendly and not suitable for listening to near impressionable children.

    CLL is a lot of fun. Read my experience with them in Chapter 33 of my journal.

    Last time I was at CLL they had a G-IV in the pattern doing T&G's. He'd flown up from Houston.

    CLL is the one place where I lined up to land on the wrong runway one night just before the tower closed. They were very nice about it. Guess I needed the break.

    When I worked at the FBO at EMT (El Monte, CA) I used to give airport tours to school groups on a regular basis. If the tower wasn't too busy, I would take them up there to have a look see. A couple of times the tower crew would let the kids record the ATIS, with each kid reading a couple of words. It was pretty comedic, and the kids had a blast doing it and then hearing themselves over the radio.
    Scary ghost sounds in the background on Halloween, Jingle Bells on Christmas, etc etc.
    I kinda miss not doing that anymore.... :-(

    Not an ATIS, but one night when there were lots of thunderstorms I heard the Minneapolis Center controller say, "Center weather advisories are in effect from Midway the airport to Midway the island. Contact flight service for details."
