We had a wee bit of trouble getting the dreamliner out the door at KSFB yesterday afternoon.
The 787 pilots had a minor spat with the tower-- seems there was a small difference in expectations each of the other.
Attached is the audio.
30 min. of audio attached but just skip forward to where the fun starts at 26:03. Then for the next 4 1/2 min.
I have tried to transcribe it best I could.
The 787 is trying to taxi from the terminal to bravo one but is stuck at bravo two.
26:03 tower, Thompson 127 heavy is with you and is holding short of bravo 2
26:12 Thompson 127 heavy, Sanford tower, hold short runway Niner left
26:15 Thompson 127 heavy, we can't get past this light aircraft at the moment.
26:19 Thompson 127 heavy, Roger, verify hold short runway Niner left
26:24 Thompson 127 heavy, we are unable to taxi due to light aircraft in front of us at the moment.
26:30 Thompson 127 heavy, I understand that but when I give you a clearance to hold short of a runway I need a Readback. Hold short runway Niner left please.
26:37 Okay, we'll hold short runway Niner left in turn???, Thompson 127 heavy
26:48 (other pilot comes on) tower, do you expect us to taxi over the top of this light aircraft? Thompson 127 heavy
27:03 Thompson 127 heavy, uh, I'm not sure what you mean. You are in control of the aircraft. Do what you think is uh, safe for you. I think ground controller just taxied you to runway Niner left full length, correct?
27:13 Yes, but there's a light aircraft! If I taxi now, I'll put my wing over the top of a light aircraft. Its an extremely dangerous situation. Is that what you're expecting me to do? Thompson 127 heavy
27:24 Thompson 127 heavy, negative, I, I expect you to hold short of runway niner left. If you need to stop there and wait for that aircraft to take off, that's fine.
29:44 Thompson 127 heavy, approaching bravo one, then the hold and ready for departure.
30:17 Thompson 127 heavy, Sanford tower. Fly heading 080. Climb and maintain 5000. Runway Niner left. Cleared for takeoff.
30:23 heading 080. Climb, maintain altitude 5000 feet. Cleared for takeoff. Thompson 127 heavy
