[..okieoilman] I AM FLYING ON INSTRUMENTS AWAITING FINAL VECTORING AND AUTHORIZATION FROM CONTROL TOWER TO LAND-DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH TRAFFIC IS AHEAD OF ME.
Ghost: I ASKED OKIE WHAT HE MEANT WHEN HE SAID HE WAS FLYING I.F.R.--HE LAUGHED AND SAID--I FOLLOW ROADS---I FOLLOW RIVERS
Ghost: NEVER CONCERN YOURSELF ABOUT OKIE BEING ON ANY OTHER SITE BUT THIS ONE
Ghost: OKIE HAS HAD A ROUGH TIME FLYING UNTIL HE DETERMINED HIS WEIGHT AND BALANCE WAS FIGURED WRONG WITH TOO MUCH ORDINANCE AFT OF DATUM
Ghost: NOW ALL YOU FOLKS CAN GO TO WIKIPEDIA AND FIND OUT WHAT DATUM REPRESENTS
[DelawareMeMom] The center of gravity (CG) of an aircraft is the point at which the aircraft would balance if it were possible to suspend it at that point. It is the theoretical point at which the entire weight of the aircraft is assumed to be concentrated. Its position is calculated after supporting the aircraft on at least two sets of weighing scales or load cells, and noting the weight shown on each set of scales or load cell. The center of gravity affects the stability of the aircraft. Aft describes the direction of movement within an aircraft; that is, towards the tail. Example: "Let's go aft." Meaning to pull back on the yoke. It may also describe the back/tail location or region within an aircraft cabin. Example: "Aft lavatory." The difference of aft and stern is that aft is the inside (onboard) rearmost part of the vessel, while stern refers to the outside (offboard) rearmost part of the vessel.
Ghost: KUDOS TO DELAWAREMEMOM FOR EXPLAINING THE THEORY OF RELATIVITY TO A GRAPEFRUIT
Ghost: I HOPE YOU ALL REALIZE THE VALUE OF EDUCATION YOU RECEIVE ON THIS SITE, SOME OF YOU WOULD QUALIFY FOR GROUND SCHOOL
Ghost: AFT OF DATUM COULD ALSO REPRESENT WHAT A WOMAN DOES WHEN SHE PUTS ON A GIRDLE--PULL IT IN FRONT AND PUSH IT OUT IN BACK WHERE SHE CAN'T SEE IT
[doghouse] So how long can you be on Instruments until you land??
Ghost: DOGHOUSE--TILL YOU CRASH
Ghost: OKIE JUST REPORTED HE IS STILL ON INSTRUMENTS AWAITING CLEARANCE AND WILL REPORT WHEN AUTHORIZATION IS RECEIVED--END OF TRANSMISSION
