About 2 minutes into the "Inside Air Traffic Control" video they feature a clip of a man with a moustache talking about the complexities of ATC.  That's Paul Renaldi the Vice President of NATCA.

I didn't get to see that doc but I know the one guy in it used to go home & stare at his fish tank, right? He's still a bit of a dullard.

I think this is the news article he's talking about... nonetheless, a neat article!

You mean to tell me that you, an air traffic controller, has never seen Pushing Tin?  Wow, that surprises me.


Glad to see that I'm not the only one that found the guy who goes home and stares at his fish tank was a bit odd.

After a rough day of flying, I like to come home and sit in front of the TV and stare and gaze into the TV for hours.......and then I'll turn it on.

I probably didn't have the channel at the time. I've seen snippets of it. And yes, that guy's a bit of an odd duck.

That's from another documentary. This a Navy documentary called "Top Gun"

Thats pretty funny considering I also thought of you as one hell of an odd duck since the first day you arrived from Cleveland center.

It might be a bit off topic, but is a "near miss" a glancing impact, or a full blown collision?

In the doc Near Miss, the controller working in the KEWR tower is Glenn Doffy who bought his kid to work a few years ago at KJFK

Wasn't it a "near hit"?! Wink
