Could it have anything to do with all the disruption of traffic due to the snowstorm on the coast?

I was at the drive-through window at Wendy's about 15 minutes ago, and when I rolled down the window, I heard an aircraft overhead. I just caught a glimpse of what I thought was a 747 as it disappeared into the clouds. Haven't seen one of those around PIT in quite a while...

If you're talking about the guy working in the tower last night, he's not new he's actually been there for years.  They call him Radio because he used to be a radio DJ in Pittsburgh and you can still see its influence on his radio technique.  He's extremely smart, and the nicest guy I've ever met.  Not sure about the equip problems, I'll look into that for you.

And yes, I have a couple of pics, I'll send them to you.

Yes, i know that the guy in the tower has been ther for a long time. The guy on APP/DEP. back in 2000 NPR radio news did a recording about airport and they chose PIT to do it in and ther is a recording of him. I love to hear the traffice. alot more than then compared to today.

Anyone here old enough to remember a controller at PIT who would always close his conversion with "adios". I think his name was Frank.



US AIR 230 turn left heading 290, cleared for the ILS runway 28 Left approach, contact tower 119.1...adios.

Wow, that was before my time but I think I know the guy you're talking about.  He got fired in the PATCO strike then rehired at YNG in '98.  If it's the same guy I'm thinking of, he's a Sup at ERI now and is definitely one of the most exciting controllers I've ever heard.  His name isn't Frank though, it's Dan...and he does say "Adios" alot. wink
