What a great thread idea... Good job, welcome to 2002 ( or whenever the first guy started talking about wind checks and Delta..)

There's a Delta pilot who likes to tell departure control that they are airborne on initial contact i.e. "Delta 123, airborne, 2,000 climbing 7,000", but give him credit, at least he doesn't say "with you" or worse yet "checking in with you" as if to let the controller he is talking to him and no one else, like some student pilot says.

Don't worry, Jenny will be along shortly to get the response count in this thread over 20. That'll help the site for sure!

It could be worse with BA on take off "Speedbird Rolling" (I bet they miss "roger and out")

The wind is nice and all but "how long is final today?"

A lot
"what's our sequence"
Shaun, in Da Nang, Vietnam you were always number 1. That probably made you feel good. It had better, you travelled across the World for RJ SIC time! What an idiot!

The MadDog (M88) has the wing of a DC-9. Clean speed in excess of 260kts is not uncommon for takeoff. The little wing doesn't do much better on final. The wind and especially gust factor is a big deal in trying to avoid falling out of the sky on short final. Most DAL guys started out of the M88 and I think the wind check culture crossed over to other plane types.

Delta wind checks

Would this somehow stem or relate to the Delta L1011 microburst discovery years ago? How far back do their wind checks go?

Ahhh all the communication police have arrived. Who cares what others do. Is it really messing with YOUR life in some way.

On the good side since this whole wind check and departure call stuff, I learned a few more things to say on the radio....

Not every plane just falls from the sky... If final is going to be short, sum us need to configure pretty early. Helps 2 no.
