The tat

the long road out of kb...


this picture actually looks like a detective's head facing to the left. can you see the top hat, hook nose, and sharp chin? or is it just me? oh well...

we call our aircrafts by their registrations. its like their names. aircraft registrations in msia start with 9M (pronounced as Niner Mike), followed by three alphabets. but most of our aircraft have ascending (?) alphabets, for example it could be 9M-AAA, 9M-AAB, 9M-AAC etc etc... so we would simply call them by their last alphabet like alpha, bravo, charlie (aviation terminology for A, B, C (and U would be uniform)).
'
then there is the exceptions. like 9M-TAT. since that makes out a syllabus, we simply call it "tat".
'
the other night, only 9M-APU and 9M-TAT were being used. the engineer wasn't sure. and a conversation took place like this:
'
'
him: malam nie, Uniform dengan TAT flying?
'
me: ahhh yes. TAT dan apu (i pronounced as apoo, like the owner of kwik-e mart in the simpsons)
'
him: apooo dengan panTAT eh?!
'


doesn't the clouds look fake. like a passageway to heaven?
'
'
'
btw, that's panTAT fyi.
