One crew (not us, thank God) had a tough time figuring out who the controllers were talking to. The captain I was working with wrote a safety report on it. It was obviously a very effective safety report.
I'm surprised some moron didn't add 86 "L" on that NRT leg.

"Say again...Fed Ex 86 REEEEMA?"

Center: "huh?"

Us: "Yeah....we ain't gonna answer anything but "MAGNUM" for the next 80 minutes, so pass it on down the sectors, okay?"

I can assure you'd we'd never miss a MANGNUM call.

The fun part would be naming each flight.... some ideas:

1818= "legal/legal"

1478 (TLH) = "seminole" or (poor taste I know) "bushwacker"

You get the idea. Have some fun naming your favorite trips. I'm sure we'd have some GREAT trips going into the Orient with some pretty cool names like "happy ending" and "long time".

Remember--its all about SAFETY, legality, and reliability....oh...and pride.

I'd like to pick the name "Center" that would mess 'em up!

My favorite formation call signs were "Chosen" and "Webad", as in Chosen 1, and Webad 2.
