My first flight with not just 1 but 2 passengers (friends of mine) I was a bit worried that they had a good time and that the landing was going to be a "great" one or what I would call a awesome one ! On my approach I saw the local airliner waiting at the holding point, (they don`t like to wait due to the fact that they are burning a lot more fuel that you). The landing no problem but then the ATC (Air Traffic Control) said with a worried voice : "Please expedite the back-track" So now, I knew I had to make sure i get of the runway sooner than normal. I mis-judged my turn and went over the grass a bit...no problem there were no lights in the area but as I turn I read back ATC request: "Expedite the back track", and I forgot to release the PTT (push to talk button),and said "O shit hier gaan ek oor die grass" meaning "..#$%... I`m going over the grass", with everybody hearing it! I really felt a bit embarrassed especially the swearing part but it seems the Express pilots had a good laugh. As I passed them they just waved with a big smile....and then I realized what I had done...oeps!
