    You gotta love this one even if you've never lived in the South. Some of you will enjoy this more than others



    Atlanta ATC: "Tower to Saudi Air 511 -- You are cleared to land eastbound on runway 9R

    Saudi Air: "Thank you Atlanta ATC. Acknowledge cleared to land on infidel's runway 9R - Allah be Praised."

    Atlanta ATC: "Tower to Iran Air 711 --You are cleared to land westbound on runway 9R."

    Iran Air: "Thank you Atlanta ATC. We are cleared to land on infidel's runway 9R. - Allah is Great."

    Pause...

    Saudi Air: " ATLANTA ATC - ATLANTA ATC"

    Atlanta ATC: "Go ahead Saudi Air 511."

    Saudi Air: "YOU HAVE CLEARED BOTH OUR AIRCRAFTS FOR THE SAME RUNWAY GOING IN OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS. WE ARE ON A COLLISION COURSE. INSTRUCTIONS, PLEASE."



    Atlanta ATC: "Well bless your hearts. And praise Jesus. Y'all be careful now and tell Allah "hey" for us -- "

    Fail! To land on runway 9R means that you're on a heading of 90 (east) and setting down on the runway to the right (IIRC, there can be Right, Center, or Left). Landing on that runway in the opposite direction, they would not identify the runway as 9R but as 27L.

    Check the runway info on the Wiki page: Hartsfield?Jackson Atlanta International Airport - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia At least they got the 9R part right. :p
