As controllers, we are required to issue traffic to converging aircraft while using mimimum seperation: (enroute, it's 5 miles lateral, and 1,000' vertical, except above 29,000, where it becomes 2,000' vertical). The other day is issued traffic to a hip pilot enroute to MSP from LGA as follows: "Global (not!) Air 244, traffic 1 o'clock, ten miles, southbound, flight level two eight zero, a Fokker". His response nearly broke me up! "Cleveland, I've been waiting years to be able to say this...I got that Fokker in sight". John -- Don't blame me.....I voted for Bush!
