Request for amended flight level


Recommended Posts

A trainee air traffic controller was receiving some "on the job" training at a military airfield in the States when an SR-71 Blackbird called up requesting a flight level change. The conversation went something like this:


Pilot: SR-71 requesting amended flight level 750.


Trainee ATC: SR-71, cleared to amended flight level 750 ... if you think you can get up there!


Pilot: Roger, SR-71 left flight level 850 for 750!
