I was listening to AirVenture 9/27 this evening and at about 7:05 CDT I caught this rather humorous exchange between a Spitfire and the tower (starts at 5:22 in the attached clip):
SPITFIRE: Oshkosh Tower, Spitfire 7612 over Fond Du Lac.
TOWER: 612 over Fond Du Lac say your type.
SPITFIRE: I'm a Spitfire. Wanna do the Warbird approach.
TOWER: Spitbird....er, Spitfire, I'm sorry about that, Spitfire......I'm getting laughed at right now. Spitfire, report Warbird Island.
SPITFIRE: Roger, how 'bout runway 2-7?
TOWER: You can plan on that.
SPITFIRE: Thank you, sir......I won't laugh at you.
