Air Traffic Control, Far North Queensland

Cairns International Airport

Some of you (pilots…) will enjoy this more than others…. Queenslanders can be so polite!

Cairns Tower : "Saudi Air 511 — You are cleared to land on runway 9R."
Saudi Air : "Thank you Cairns . Acknowledge cleared to land on infidel’s runway 9R – Allah be Praised."
Cairns Tower : " Iran Air 711 – You are cleared to land on runway 27L."
Iran Air : "Thank you Cairns. We are cleared to land on infidel’s runway 27L. – Allah is Great."

Pause….
Saudi Air : " CAIRNS TOWER – CAIRNS TOWER !"
Cairns Tower : "Go ahead Saudi Air 511…"
Saudi Air : "YOU HAVE CLEARED BOTH OUR AIRCRAFT FOR
THE SAME RUNWAY GOING IN OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS. WE
ARE ON A COLLISION COURSE . …. .. .. … INSTRUCTIONS, PLEASE!"

Cairns Tower : "Well bless your hearts, and praise Jesus.
Proceed to your destination and tell Allah we said "Hi".
