It’s been a while since we first posted this strip on our old website, along with an explanation of the term “zulu time” in our pilot lingo encyclopedia. Boy, we didn’t know what we were in for! We didn’t get the explanation quite right and so we were flooded with emails from people explaning to us where the term comes from, that there is a difference bewteen Greenwich time and UTC etc. etc., so we kept continually updating the definition for at least a week. In the end, we shortened it again at the risk of being only 99% accurate. After all, we’re not Encyclopedia Britannica here, we just want to give people a quick explanation of aviation terms in order to get the joke…
