The phonetic alphabet used in aviation

Post by Guest on Fri May 30, 2008 1:53 am

Des Has anyone ever noticed that many of the names on this show correspond to the phonetic alphabet used in aviation:Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, Delta, Echo, Foxtrot, Golf, Hotel, India, Juliet, Kilo, Lima, Mike, November, Oscar, Papa, Quebec, Romeo, Sierra, Tango, Uniform, Victor, Whiskey, X-Ray, Yankee, Zulu. I wonder whether the other members of this list all appear in one way or another?

THS

From Lostpedia: Oscar Talbot was the expedition supervisor aboard the Christiane I in the storyline of the alternate reality game Find 815


Guest: Sorry not buying it, you have 3 from the show plus mike whose name is actually Michael. They try to make names mean something on the show but I dont think they are trying to call the emergency services.

Wait... They play golf on the show! I think we're on to something here. Plus, they've showed hotels and Dharma uniforms, they've been known to drink whiskey (well, whisky - it was Scotch), Christian is Claire and Jack's papa, and we've seen Ben's x-ray. This should not be dismissed.

Then we're waiting for some Romeo named Victor to do the Tango and the Foxtrot with Juliette in Quebec after snorting the rest of Echo's Kilo, in a flashback to a scene from Novemeber.

OK, wait, that's just Dancing with the Stars IV. Right network, wrong show.
