Don't think he got in too much trouble, there was an article in the company newsletter congratulating them on their engagement (his wife-to-be is also an employee of Nav Canada), along with a description of how he proposed.

Just like the ending of the movie "Pushing Tin".. where the approach controller (casted by John Cusack) say sorry to his wife..  Cheesy  

But I find this clip even better!

Wow, I need to get that movie. What really pushing tin means? Pushing cans, or what? (since english is not my first language) Please, anyone?

"Pushing tin" is a slang term for controlling air traffic, especially in a busy environment. While technically not made of tin, airliners bear enough of a resemblance to tin cans that the reference is easily enough understood.

Thanks, so I wasn't far at all for the meaning. I'm gonna get that movie.

Any other movie that you know that is with ATC story?

Fra,

There is also a movie called "Ground Control", in 1998..
IMDB.COM quote:

"A disgraced former air traffic controller is called back into service when the airport's traffic control system malfunctions."

ATC fans may probably be interested or like it..  most other people may find it boring though   huh

Don't forget "Summer Rental" with John Candy.  He was an overworked  tower controller in need of a vacation:

Modern Problems

Chevy Chase

BTW IMHO Pushing Tin was really bad.  The best thing about that movie was when they showed Cusack visualizing the traffic in 3 dimensions.  That is how a controller interprets the 2 dimensional display in his mind.  Oh yeah, and that one scene with Angelina Jolie... cheesy  After that you can hit the eject button.
