An aircraft is flying to Naples airport on an ILS approach. The visibility is poor and its position is less than 4 NM from the threshold of runway 24. The following ATC messages should be expected next:
  • A
    FASTBIRD 166, CLEARED TO LAND RUNWAY 24, WIND 270 DEGREES 15 KNOTS.
  • B
    FASTBIRD 166, ILS APPROACH TO RUNWAY 24, CLEARED TO LAND.
  • C
    FASTBIRD 166, REPORT RUNWAY 24 IN SIGHT, WIND 270 DEGREES 15 KNOTS.
  • D
    FASTBIRD 166, REPORT FINAL RUNWAY 24, WIND 360 DEGREES 18 KNOTS.
  • "FASTBIRD 166, REPORT FINAL RUNWAY 24, WIND 360 DEGREES 18 KNOTS." INCORRECT.
    The aircraft is already on short final. 
     
  • "FASTBIRD 166, REPORT RUNWAY 24 IN SIGHT, WIND 270 DEGREES 15 KNOTS." INCORREC.
    The aircraft is making an ILS approach, possibly under IMC => question states "visibility is poor".
     
  • "FASTBIRD 166, ILS APPROACH TO RUNWAY 24, CLEARED TO LAND." INCORRECT
    At a greater distance, possibly before turning to final, the aircraft would most likely receive the following clearance "FASTBIRD 166, CLEARED ILS APPROACH RUNWAY 24, QNH [value].". On short final, the pilot can expect the landing clearance: "FASTBIRD 166, CLEARED TO LAND RUNWAY 24, WIND [value]" => nowadays, the phraseology would actually be: "FASTBIRD 166, WIND [value], CLEARED TO LAND RUNWAY 24".
