I just happened to have the full 45min documentary on one of my old CD's that I used for backups back in those days.  I've uploaded it to my Dropbox, the link is here --->

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/12975789/Near_Miss_(by_apapele182).wmv

Please don't stream it from the internetz, just right-click and download. The file is about 82mb.

There's some amazing stuff in there. Yer man at LGA is pretty cool, Dave Schoen in the tower at JFK seems unfazed by lost traffic going the wrong way. Towards the runway. In the fog. At JFK.

There's some great shots of the NY TRACON, not to mention some scary Newark stories from a man whose name I don't recall but who spends a lot of time in front of fish tanks following a near-miss.  And then there's Glenn, being very fidgety over at Newark talking to the camera while in the background a man in a very 80's jacket desperately tries to get his attention back to the 5000 planes that are waiting for takeoff by waving a pencil in his face. Classic stuff so it is.

Enjoy!

No problem.

Is Glenn working again? And what about the other ATC'ers featured - are they still around?

Thanks for the upload.

I wonder what the controllers of today would have to say if they went back to remake this today? Which things changed and what is the same?
