Very, very enjoyable clip!  You could just imagine the volume on the aircraft after that.

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!

"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.

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.

What I didn't get in this clip was where the plane was.  Obviously on the ground but did this all occur on the taxi to the gate or did he stop the plane somewhere?

Also for "Pushing Tin", you have to watch the scene(s) where the two ATC went to taste the Wake Turbulance on the runway under a 747..  that part is too funny (also seems fake).. cheesy

There was a TV movie called blackout and it starred Eric Stoltz.  The movie is about a mid-air collision.  Everyone blames the controller, but faulty radar equipment is the real cause.
