Persistent other rumors of some sort of magic triangulation that will locate the offender. Not going to happen, for better or worse.

Think about that last odd super-religious pilot you last flew with. Substitute God with Allah, and give him a gun to carry around. No thanks.

Amazing how much you think you know about our work environment. I wish I had as much wisdom and knowledge about it when I was still flying piston singles

Are you that guy with the nano second response ("you're on guard!") when I accidentally say something on guard? Or when I intentionally say something on guard? 😎

Honestly, I've never found immature guard acitivity to be a pervasive problem in all sorts of flying operations over the course of 20,000 hours. You're comment about FOQA data and apparent aggressive enforcement surprises me. Not intending to give you a hard time ... genuinely interested to hear specifics. Do share.

Exactly,
But when the other guy in the plane doesn't think it's quite as witty as you do and calls pro-standards, it might get toned down. The guarrrrrddddd thing is getting old, it was funny the first 250ish times, but now it is the same as a 6 year old telling the same joke over and over.
This problem will solve its self, when ATC gets tired of the issue and the FAA decides to involve the Federal Governments full willingness to chase shadows. Couldn't cost more than a few dozen million....
The guy who yelled on 121.5"would you guys get off the Delta Ops frequency right now" was pretty funny though.

Amazingly enough, I witnessed all this on a single trip. I kept looking around for a hidden camera, waiting for Ashton Kutcher to pop up and scream, 'You've been punk'd!'
A.S.A.P., if you called the speed deviation, not if you just sat there and meekly watched.

Sorry if these guys have already been nominated. Even if they have, it's probably worth a repeat: whoever thought it was a good idea to recycle the Eastern name and image. Supreme Tools!

I called it, and it was fixed.. Probably should have filed an ASAP, come to think of it. Too late now, though...
