I'm saying - THERE WAS NO INCIDENT. Nothing but a complaint voiced over the airwaves. Get over it already.

Will you lighten up a bit?  "Incident" is not an official term here.  It simply a word that is being used to describe this moment in time when the pilot was in contact with ATC.

Defintion number two from Dictionary.com

Incident (n)

2.   a distinct piece of action, or an episode, as in a story or play.

For the record, no airspace was 'violated' because an acknowledgement of your transmission is clearance to enter class C. Yes, the controller asked him to 'circumnavigate' and as one other poster asked - what exactly does that mean? It's not entirely clear, the controller knew the exact position of the seaplane at all times, asked him to turn east and he complied. The only real issue here is a bit of complaining over the airwaves - nothing more, nothing less.

Yes, complaining over the airwaves while this same controller was trying to work an emergency.  I was stunned by the harassing nature of the pilot's inquiries.  While you attempt to defend the indefensible, I believe that if in the same position as the Sanford controller, I'd have violated that horse's rear end in a New York minute.  Simply inexcusable behaviour, especially from one with so much aviation experience.

im glad it was ultimatley a safe landing.

good work cleaning up the mp3.

I wonder if the seaplane phoned in the day after.... he could surely have left his argument until the emergency had been dealt with.

I hope this is not the beginning of the end of the last bastion of common courtesy in this profession.  What that pilot questioned was inexcusable and the Tower guy really kept his cool under very extreme flack from the pilot.
