But, I'm telling you man, the stories on BBC and other news are wrong, because the "a" was erased deliberately by Texans in flight control HQ. If it was static, then why can't one hear a short burst of static?It's not static, it's an erasure. Texas has a long history of quirky fascination with letters. Here are some examples:--Changed "Tejas" to "Texas". When they're not playing with "a"s, they play with "j"s and "x"s.--There is a difference in Texas between "Independent oil producer" (big "I") and "independent oil producer" (small I)--George "W" Bush (who some people just call "Dubya"; being known by two letters, and especially only one letter, is a high honor in Texas, e.g., "CJ". One has to earn the right to be called by letters, and not "Bill" or "George" or some such.)In Texas, never do business with anyone unless they go by two letters (or at least know someone who does), otherwise you can be sure they're not very well connected. If you meet a Bill and he introduces you to a George, then watch out. On the other hand, if you meet a CJ and he introduces you to an AJ and MC, then you're in! --Ranches in Texas are often named using a letter, e.g., "Circle M Ranch"--Lounges on the U. of Texas campus are called a "T Room" (Don't believe it? Take a look: T-Room )--Who shot "J" "R"?--"Debie Does Dallas" ("D" "D" "D"--nice alleteration using the letter "D")
