From the sounds of things, Perth have landed aircraft stacked to their eyeballs and nowhere to put them.

Cancel that, they've managed to clear it somehow.

You will notice sometimes aerodomes will hold an arriving aircraft if the bay is full.  That's never happened here unless the weather is IFR, then the next aircraft to land is allowed to land ONLY when the guy ahead of him is officially clear and off the runway, for IFR arriving safety purposes.  I once saw a tv ATC story ages ago that there are too many aircrafts in the air and not enough concrete to put them on, this was a quote from an American tower controller about 15 years ago.

I think that was partially the problem with Perth.  They're a stopover site for so many international flights that a couple of hiccups on the ground led them into a "worst case" scenario.  One plane was missing a passenger and they held the plane because the passenger's baggage was loaded.  One had unspecified problems and was told to park and leave it till maintenance could get to it.  All in all, it was interesting listening.

One other thing ... whether it's because I'm closer to it or the feed is from a particularly good setup, it's as clear as daylight.  Good for newbies who are getting to grips with terms ... although "okay" and "mate" surface a bit often.  cheesy

That's the benefit with living close to a transmitter site. The benefit you have is the same I had when visiting Peterborough ONtario and heard the Simco sector 127.0 split away from the two Peterborough/Toronto east freq's and the Peterborough sectors got suddenly quiet on one scanner and I only heard '1-way' conversations on the Simco sector, being close enough to the Simco sector, I COULD hear the pilots on there.  Up here where I live, you're lucky to hear aircraft handing off to the adjacent sectors on either freq 127.25 or 135.5  So you're pretty lucky.

I'm thinking your talking about the Virgin holding up a few aircraft. We recently had extra flights added on due to our local footy team being in the Grandfinal this sat so Qantas and Virgin both added extra flight to Melbourne and extra flights but no extra bays made for some traffic jams!

Ah, thank you, that would explain it.
