Favorite ATC Phrases

I listen to live air traffic control audio to relax.  Yes, I’m weird.  Most of the time, I’m lurking on the Las Vegas Approach/Departure feed on LiveATC.  Favorite phrases:

“Descend via the Sunset 3 Arrival”

“Caution Wake Turblance”

Bonus–sometimes they have to control USAF traffic out of Nellis as they enter and exit Las Vegas Class B airspace.  The callsigns are great.  Usually they coordinate with a KC737 that’s pulling AWACS duties.  Truly insane amounts of words and traffic passing through there each day.
