    Somehow I thought this thread was about amusing "fixes" thread, like some hi-speed taping an engine block or something...

    It's nice to see that a surprising number of the folks who do this naming have a sense of humor. Federal employees, taken as a class, too often are humor-impaired - I guess the system flogs it out of lots of them.

    The truth is out there...

    Near Milton, FL to be more specific. Came out of there one morning...Captain was PM.

    He checks in with Departure and we get the instruction to proceed direct to INBRD (verbally expressed as - Inboard). Captain reads it back but verbally expresses it as "Inbred."

    That departure controller was not too amused (hopefully he has since retired) as we then got a lecture about "Why would the FAA name a fix Inbred...it's Inboard...you guys are being unprofessional." blah blah blah.

    It sounded like the guy never had the opportunity to leave P31 and was a few months from retirement...six years ago.

    I always enjoyed saying "proceed direct, BEECH."
