    Pilot; '' LH 454 Super approaching 11,000ft information 'C' '' ...
    Tower; '' LH 454 Super NorCal approach San Francisco heading 140, prepare for visual approach on 28L '' ...
    Pilot; '' For visual approach on runway 28L !!! '' ...
    Tower; '' ... but expect the ILS for RWY28R '' ...
    Pilot; '' I was starting to wonder ! '' ... where that smell of poopoo was coming from !

    You can see a whole world of stress level difference between ''prepare for visual approach on RWY28L'' and ''expect the ILS for RWY28R'' ! We get so much dependent on computers and auto operation that when we are asked to take the steering by hand mode, fun is finished !!!
