Most of the audio of the incident at Oshkosh this evening was on the South Tower Frequency, but I have included both. I did trim down the audio slightly from when N6JR initially checks in.

Pilot: "Is 6JR going to be okay with this?"
ATC: "Afirm..."
Pilot: "I don't think so."

I'm glad everyone is okay!

Update 1: Here is a pic of Jack exiting the aircraft as posted by Twitter user jasonmcdowell. (Warning: there is blood): http://yfrog.com/mns2jj

Update 2: Added audio of KOSH-App-Fisk during airport shutdown. In addition, I can't figure out why the South Twr archive is missing some audio. Most archive clips are about 31 Minutes long, but for some reason the South Twr audio archive is only 18 Minutes and missing several minutes right after what I have already posted. Can anyone confirm if they get the same thing when they pull up the South Twr archive from 2300-2330Z?

I think it is time for The Cat in the Hat to hang it up.

This is a CNN article with video of Roush and his passenger exiting the aircraft after the accident.

Listening live yesterday during the incident (North Tower), i was having intermitent stoppages in transmission, but i thought it was my internet, maybe it was their stream.

The part that gave me chills was when an aircraft asks, "Is 6JR going to be okay with us?"
ATC: "Afirm..."
Pilot: "I don't think so."


That was N6JR (Roush) asking "Is 6JR going to be okay with this?"  You quoted it as "us".  Thanks for posting the audio files!

I have listened to this audio so many times trying to figure what went wrong.  I have to admit up front that I am a Jack Roush fan, so I am desiring to find that it was not just poor aviation skill on his part.   undecided

At first, I thought that the traffic referred to as "Lake" may have been part of the problem.  After several listens I have deducted that although the controller stumbled somewhat on the instructions given to "Lake", that was simply the aircraft in the pattern behind N6JR.  After the mishap "Lake" was told to go around.  The audio that was played on Speed Channel was edited to sound as though Roush made his statement of disapproval immediately after the confused instructions to "Lake".  After listening to your real time audio, it is apparent that Roush made his displeasure with the situation known well after the controller instructions to "Lake".

I believe that Mr. Roush (N6JR) was put into a cramped predicament with traffic landing ahead of him.  He expressed his doubts to the controller by asking "Is 6JR going to be okay with this?"  The controller assured him it was going to work.  I am not sure what type was ahead of 6JR, but my guess is that it was a slower aircraft and Mr. Roush recognized pending difficulty as he turned base for final.  He stated "I don't think so!"

Just BEFORE the controller warns 6JR of caution for traffic ahead upwind (a bit late in my opinion), you can hear an unintelligible transmission which I believe was 6JR stating that he was going around!  Reports that 6JR was too slow for his type would also make sense here, considering that I believe he was jammed into a situation where his type was too close behind the slower aircraft landing ahead.

Considering he may have been pressed to slow on final and then because eyewitness reports stated that he applied power as if to go around makes sense.  It sounds as if he trusted the controller a bit too long....maybe he should have called a go around sooner.  It sounds as though by the time he applied power to go around, the stall overcame the aircraft and some adverse yaw from the power rotated the Premier to the right.

I may not be qualified to speak this much on the subject since I am a Locomotive Engineer, but I have studied aviation all my life and just dream of one day being a pilot.  A good pilot like Mr. Roush!
 cool

Wow, I got chills posting that!  LOL!

...and another thing that bothers me.  When the controller was very tardy in warning 6JR of traffic ahead upwind on the runway, AFTER 6Jr's voicing his displeasure, where did the controller go?  It is obvious that someone else took over.  I guess the controller freaked and called for a relief!

He probably went to the restroom to finish wetting himself!

I re-listened the the audio tonight on my desktop PC (vs my Netbook) and you are absolutely right, that is 6JR and it seems very clear on desktop speakers. I've edited the quote in my original post.

Good analysis of the audio everyone! I had not even noticed the controller swap after the incident.

Dave was going to look into it. It's possible there was a connectivity or other technical issue right after the incident. I'm guessing it was just coincidence as I hear lots of people are having issues with data service this year at KOSH.

Oh. there definitely was a Controller swap afterwards!  Mr. Roush was thrown into an impossible situation and tried too late to correct for it!

I listened to a good 3 or 4 minutes of audio before 6JR checks in and heard nothing but dead air. If there was any traffic there's no evidence of it in the feed. Neither did I hear any transmission where the tower tells 6JR to slow down or is told about any traffic. In fact the tower tells him to start his downwind. If was I concerned about a slower aircraft in front of a faster I wouldn't prompt the faster to turn a downwind.

Just BEFORE the controller warns 6JR of caution for traffic ahead upwind (a bit late in my opinion), you can hear an unintelligible transmission which I believe was 6JR stating that he was going around!  Reports that 6JR was too slow for his type would also make sense here, considering that I believe he was jammed into a situation where his type was too close behind the slower aircraft landing ahead.

...and another thing that bothers me.  When the controller was very tardy in warning 6JR of traffic ahead upwind on the runway, AFTER 6Jr's voicing his displeasure, where did the controller go?  It is obvious that someone else took over. 

There's 5 seconds from the garbled transmission that sounds like 6RJ is going around and when the controller issues upwind traffic. An aircraft on a upwind leg (parallel to the runway flying the same direction as the runway) wouldn't be a factor to an aircraft making a full stop. I don't know why you seem to think that 6RJ should have been told about it before he stared going around.

I don't hear a change in controller until 2 transmissions after the lake is told to go around which is presumably when 6RJ crashed.

As I stated in my first paragraph I didn't hear anything that would indicate traffic in front of 6JR or 6JR being told to slow down.  It seems your respect for Jack Roush has caused you to jump to unnecessary conclusions which are not at all supported by the evidence at hand. A lot is being made of the transmission "is 6JR ok with this?". Honestly I have no idea how any conclusion as to what "this" was can be made given there were only 2-3 transmissions made before it and we can't see what the aircraft was actually doing.

I guess the controller freaked and called for a relief!

These types of comments given the limited data available are just as inappropriate any which would assume Jack Roush was an incompetent pilot.
