Anyone else see this mention of LiveATC.net?  

Quote from a front page story in the Halifax Herald newspaper in Halifax, Nova Scotia on Saturday, August 6, 2005:

Quote
"Pan Pan Pan, KLM 691. . . . We have a low-fuel emergency," the KLM pilot told Toronto air traffic controllers. "Declaring a low fuel emergency, KLM 691."

The controllers radioed back, asking the minimum length of runway needed, suggesting Hamilton's airport, west of Pearson, according to a tape of the air traffic controllers at Pearson on Liveatc.net.

The website, which included a tape download of the chatter between controllers and pilots the day of the Air France crash, is used by airline enthusiasts, including pilots.

On the tape, the KLM pilot, in a calm voice, said "We need . . . left turn into Syracuse . . . We've got it (lined up)."

No, thank you for posting it, I was unaware of it.  I believe this has been brought up in an earlier topic in another scenerio.

I would prefer we not contact the media ourselves.

If they do contact us (and I have never been contacted so far) then the protocol should be to refer them to the FAA.  I would prefer for this site to not be the source of any audio as far as the press goes.  What individuals choose to do is their own business, but I get the feeling the FAA may get miffed about it.

I should have copywrited the clip so I could make some money off of it.  Just kidding. Wink

In all honestly, I'm flattered.  Pretty cool that the site was in the paper.
