Aviation acronyms

These aviation acronyms or abbreviations come courtesy of Pilot DAR who recently posted them on PPRuNe (Professional Pilots Rumour Network):

DCS (the "arm" switches the Six Million Dollar Man turned on just before he crashed)
LARS (Swedish guy?)
MAP (mist approach practice?)
ATS (a tough situation?)
CTR (caught turning right?)
CTA (clearly tough acronyms?)
LATCC (let all the chatter continue?)
SAM (surface to air missile?)
ACK (only half the anti aircraft fire?)
FAB (Lady Penelope)
