"front page headline"

 

heard here: http://goo.gl/3QMlQZ

 

then again at time 16:00 you hear it repeatedly - and then again ~16:50 and also IVO ~18:00

 

i don't remember ever coming across that when i was in -- can anybody fill me in??

 

if i were to guess.. i would say whatever the subject is, its really important - in which case i don't know why they don't just preface it with "emergency traffic" or go out on guard - ?? "front page headline" SOUNDS like its big news..

 

also, their tone of voice isn't elevated - there are of other clips in that audio track where you can tell ppl are getting excited - such as when someone is requesting bogey dope (or declare?) and he's not getting an answer

 

also, it seems like perhaps it could mean someone is actually checking in?? someone calls up stating "front page headline" and the AIC just rogers out

 

anyway, yeah - anyone know what it "really" means??

thx so much!

 

problem is.. that doc doesn't have this particular term in it - i searched

 

i should have said, i already have a few versions of the multi-service brevity code docs - and i've googled the term ----- coming up empty..

Hmmm

 

It may not be an official brevity term but something that particular unit uses for a certain situations. I know that we have used different code words that we just sort of made up during the briefing. Everything from Star Wars movie quotes to sports terms.

 

Many of the brevity terms are universal between the services in regards to aviation. I've never heard "front page news" before in Army aviation maybe its an Air Force thing or something they just made up that day to say when they have eyes on their objective or something.

yeah.. could be

 

from context it sounds like they're just checking in for the first time

 

there are other phrases they're using that I'm unfamiliar with also - but I've been out for a while so...;)
