Time Check

I have been trying to save this joke for a special event but I just can't keep it to myself any longer. I do not know the original author, but it was told to me by Jim Steidinger, the Oshkosh Ultralight/Lightplane Judging chairman who has served as a volunteer there for 23 years.

It's radio conversation:


PILOT: Oshkosh tower could you please give me a time check?

TOWER: Please identify yourself.

PILOT: What difference does it make. I only want a time check!

TOWER: It makes a BIG difference. If you are general aviation, it's 4:30. If you are military it's 16:30. If you are Lufthansa it's 22:30 Zulu,.... and if you're an ultralight, it's thursday!
