Helen Parr (Elastigirl) is exceptionally accurate with her use of radio protocol while flying. "VFR on top" indicates she is flying in the regime of Visual Flight Rules 'on top' of a cloud cover. She then requests vectors to the "initial", the initial landing approach. "Angels 10" is her altitude call - ten thousand feet. "Track east" is her current direction of travel from her current position. Her "buddy-spiked" mayday is US Air Force code, as a warning not to fire, given to an aircraft who has radar lock on a friendly - in this case, Helen was referring to the missiles she thought were fired by friendlies. "Transmitting in the Blind Guard" is a call on the emergency frequency where 2-way communication has not been established. Elastigirl's pilot call sign is India-Golf-Niner-Niner, or IG99. This is a reference to Brad Bird's The Iron Giant (1999): [I]ron [G]iant released in 19.
