I'm pretty sure his name was Frank....at least that's what many of the pilots would call him.

Somewhere I have audio cassette tapes that I would record from my scanner 30 years ago! I'll have to dig them up. Thats back when there was a runway 5-23 at PIT.

This site has rekindled my air traffic control interest!

Yes I believe so. It's been awhile....Back when Wiske was WARWOOD...Nesto was NEWTON...Grace was GRAHAM and Cutta was CALCUTTA.


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


Ok, I've got the straight story--The original "adios" guy at PIT was indeed named Frank. Dan, who worked there at the same time, picked it up from him. (Source: Ed from YNG, who's also ex-PATCO, from PIT at that time, and who works with my wife...)

JD, have you ever heard Dan called "Quatro"? (Because he's completely at home working traffic landing in four different directions at once.)

I never have yet....we call him "showtime," for the same reasons.  I'll be sure to call him that next time I see him, he'll probably get a kick out of it.  And thanks for the clarification.

I know Ed too...real nice guy, although I'm still a little bitter he didn't drop some of his home-grown tomatos off at the tower last summer.  cry  Next time you see him tell him the people over at BVI say hello and wish him well.

I'll pass that along.

Yes, Ed is a heckuva nice guy!

As for the tomatoes--I didn't get any either, but I did get four tomato plants. Just had to grow em myself...     Cheesy
