At a bref look at the abstract it seems like a blanket patent covering all possibilities. As in troll patent. :(

I heard the californian weed is also not bad! So I guess, LA tower probably goes more regional... :lol:

Nice find!

From my e@mail box :

EDDF, afternoon, prime time, BA Jumbo nicely landed and vacated runway. ATC give him complicated instructions how to taxi to the gate. Jumbo stopped on taxiway and pilot is searching airport map.
.
.
ATC : Speedbird 206, why did You stop ? Are You here first time ?
BA206 : Negative, sir, I was here 2 times, in 1944, at night, in another Boeing and I did not land...

The thing that makes it funny is that it seems like it's serious for the first couple minutes and then it goes completely off the rails. :lol:
