    Indian Air Traffic Control: OK, Have you tried your router? Make sure it's plugged into your phone line?
    Indian Air Force Pilot: What??? What router? I am being in an aircraft trying to land!!!
    Indian Air Traffic Control: Well, have you updated your anti virus software. Perhaps you are infected.
    Indian Air Force Pilot: Virus? How can I have a bloody virus? This is an Air Force aircraft. Of COURSE I don't have a virus!!!
    Indian Air Traffic Control: Sir, please to be calm. I am only trying to help. Is your equipment plugged into the wall socket?
    Indian Air Force Pilot: MAYDAY, MAYDAY!!! I am going to crash!!! MAYDAY!!!
    Indian Air Traffic Control: Please sir, stop shouting. I must tell you... oh. Never mind.

    LOL!

    ...Then a few days later the pilot's relatives recieve a questionnaire in the post asking what they thought of the ATC service, as part of their ongoing efforts to make the customer's experience a pleasant one...!
