Weirdest thing ATC told you in Real Life

I have a lot but the most memorable was when I was flying into Little Rock National Airport (KLIT) with my instructor and we were talking with approach and were about to be handed over ton tower when approach called us and told us to maintain fastest possible speed. Well the funny thing is, we were. We were going about 100 knots indicated and we called approach back and said “wilco, we are. We are not in a 737 here. We are in a Cessna 152.” They thought it was funny and made the traffic behind us slow to it’s final approach speed which made enough spacing in between us. Post yours below


Well, I think half of us on IF have never flown an aircraft IRL … ;)


That’s why I put it in the real world Aviation category
