AirLeg 97

“An airspeed is an airspeed only when you 're solely talking about airspeed! Forsooth, there are four refreshingly thirst quenching kinds of airspeeds which are vital for pilots to realize. They come under a beverage called ICE-T! 'I' is for indicated airspeed, which is what your instrument tells you. 'C' is for calibrated airspeed, which is indicated airspeed corrected for instrument or position errors. 'E' is for equivalent airspeed, which is calibrated airspeed corrected for compressibility errors. And 'T' is for true airspeed, which is equivalent airspeed corrected for pressure altitude and temperature.”
