When you score over 95%, how far have you sunken already?

Not related to the above video but to aviation acronyms anyway:

I have always used ...

"WX" for "weather" and
"WXR" for "weather radar".

Sometimes I see "WXR" for "weather". In that context, what's the shortcut for "WXR radar" then?

IDK  ;) if there's a generally agreed-on acronym for weather radar, but I normally use WX-R instead of WXR to avoid confusion.
Cheers,

WX = Weather
WXR = Weather Radar.

Speedtape Airlines... that's quite funny. We used to joke that speed tape was the company's recommended fix for just about anything.

Fuel leak? Speed tape!

Windshield crack? Speed tape!

One time after a lightning strike, the tail cone departed the aircraft (true story). Solution? Speed tape!

Banana strike? Speed tape.
