A Globemaster Pilot tries desperately to read back her Takeoff Clearance to the ATC. But she’s interrupted by her crew.
The video of Professor Robert Kelly, an expert on South Korea whose interview with the BBC was crashed by his children who suddenly appeared behind him, has now become viral.
Several memes and parodies have appeared online since then.
The one was posted by some U.S. Air Force Air Mobility Command C-17 Globemaster III airlifter crew who has staged a scene similar to that of the two kids bursting in on their dad during the interview, where the pilot, trying to read back the ATC (Air Traffic Control) route clearance, is interrupted by the crew who enters the cockpit.
The flight crew shall read back to the air traffic controller ATC departure, approach, landing and route clearances, instructions to taxi, enter, land on, take off from any runway, etc.
Take a look here, it’s rather funny.
