Child Air Traffic Controller Raises Questions
Recently, a 10-year-old was allowed to become an honorary air traffic controller and clear a plane at JFK.
Most people were horrified, but if we would only institute this as a trend, imagine some of the fun things a kiddie controller could say to the pilots:
"Go ahead, start going. Just don't bump into any other planes or I won't get my allowance!"
"Go really fast like in a Bruce Willis movie!"
"It's time for you to start coming back down because I have to go home and watch Wizards of Waverly Place."
"Could you hold on a minute? I just crapped my pants."
