Listen To That!

                        Listen to that, I can’t quite make it out!

    “Mayday, mayday, mayday any station receiving come in please mayday. This is a mayday call, this is a mayday call, any station receiving come in please”
    The Polotska replies.
    “Mayday to Polotska, mayday to Polotska this is trans ocean flight D for delta 250 zero starboard engine in flames port engine oil pressure dropping rapidly three thousand feet and losing height over.”
    The Polotska responds by asking for the aircraft’s position.
    “Mayday to Polotska, mayday to Polotska our position is {crackle} minutes longitude {crackle} degrees latitude over.”
    “Polotska to mayday, Polotska to mayday we’re not reading you say again please.”
    “Mayday to Polotska {crackle} mayday to Polotska too late port engine in flames losing height rapidly, will have to ditch will have to ditch……………….. closing down.”
    The Supervisor-No.56 has been listening to a mayday call put out by an aircraft in distress. The mayday call is a little garbled broken up at times by seemingly radio static, but in reality its No.6 crinkling grease-proof paper to imitate radio static when it comes to giving the aircrafts position. You know it’s the voice of No.6, I know it, so why doesn’t the Supervisor recognize the voice? Perhaps he’s a bit slow, and doesn’t have the wit, after all this Supervisor does appear to need an assistant!
   In the background there’s a change in personnel on one end of the steel see-saw device. Perhaps his attention span to the monitor has been reached, and needs a break. Or perhaps it’s a “comfort break” he needs!

Be seeing you
