Mostly correct. Or used quality headsets with hot mikes.

The Co. headsets I remember were exactly like the ones in "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo."

The SOP at American for many years incorporated a hand gesture with the gear call. Ernie Gann even mentions it, so it goes a long way back. It does look very toolish to modern eyes though.

Nearly every one of OOfff's posts contain personal attacks and at the very least are condescending. He won't see that though because he is an extremist liberal. They think nobody knows better then themselves (they haven't had to live in the real world yet so they don't know any better) so they speak down to everyone. Then they wonder why they hold nearly zero power in the U.S. lawmaking process. For proof you just have to look at the fact that they have a Freshman Congresswoman as their savior. But AOC Instagram, amirite!!

OOfff likes to do his little passive aggressive shtick. That way when he's called out on it he can play dumb.

Negative attention is better than no attention and you guys are playing right into his hands. If you ignore his posts, he'll go away.
