Shoutout from a Fedex First Officer

Who likes a shout out from a real world pilot? I do. Last night, my buddy Cliff, who is a first officer at Fedex was flying KMSP-KIND on board FDX1661. As he departed MSP, and switched to departure he said my name. The following link will take you to the LiveATC recording. The shout out starts at 29:30 and ends at 30:50. Enjoy.

I didn’t know he was gonna do it. He let me know he was flying and I told him I was gonna listen

Didn’t hear a thing about a shout out

Go to the time stamp. It’s Fedex1661 and when they go switched from tower to departure, my buddy says, “Over to departure, we’all see ya Ryan.”
