I wrote last week about May Day baskets etcetera. Since it is May Day when the paper comes out writing how Mayday was used as a distress signal. Mayday got its start as an international distress call in 1923.

Senior radio officer Frederick Mockford at Croy- don Airport in London came up with the idea for because it sounded like the French word or er, which means Mayday, an international radio distress signal used especially by ships and aircraft, has a more linguistic origin than the pragmatic approach of SOS. Before the voice call SOS was the Morse code equivalent of the mayday call. A lot of people think that the distress signal is an abbre- viation for our or our But in reality, these are backronyms, and the letters actually stand for anything. Backronyms may be invented with either serious or humorous intent. An acronym is a word derived from the initial letters of the words of a phrase: For example: RADAR comes from (Radio Detection and Ranging), NASA (Nation- al Aeronautics Space Admin- istration) or NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization).

The word is a blend of back and acronym.

Mayday signals must only be used where there is grave and imminent danger to life. Otherwise, urgent signals such as pan-pan can be sent. Procedure calls for the mayday distress signal to be said three times in a row! Mayday radio call should be reserved for life threatening situations.

These may include loss, or imminent loss of aircraft control for any number of reasons. Examples: Aircraft upset by turbulence; pilot incapacitation; spatial disorien- tation; control surface or struc- tural failure; engine failure that will lead to a forced Or, an onboard fire. A Pan-Pan call should be used for urgent situations that are not immediately life threat- ening but require assistance from someone on the ground. These include: Becoming lost, a serious aircraft system fail- ure, that requires an immediate route or altitude change. We get so worried about being pretty.
