He's alive and well, my friend Smiley I thought of you 2 seconds after he started working me on the freq today. I breathed a sigh of relief that he's still at it. He's still hurling copies of the 7110.65 on the fire to keep everyone warm at the TRACON. He doesn't instruct people to "climb and mantain" so much as "go ahead and mosey on up there to 6000 feet."

Was that our man behind the mic?

Heard this during my climb out today from Caldwell (KCDW). It does star one of my favorite N90 controllers (the guy who remembered a callsign from 25 years before when it was a Jetstar instead of a Falcon).

Cockpit video is here for those who prefer pictures with their sound: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hbWCObBBabA

Here's a clip of that NY controller in action from a few years ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCG0s3hOm8k (also contains the Falcon/Jetstar bit)

It's been a few days now and the OWD feed is just roaring noise all the time.  Communications do come through if you can stand to listen to the static...Maybe someone "touched stuff" over there and hit the squelch knob?   rolleyes

I would NOT have done the 360 on approach to pattern entry, BTW, because I had no way of knowing if he was in the pattern or entering just like me from my side of the field and I could be turning into his flight path. At that point I would have announced my position and intentions (1.5 miles out would have actually been a bit late for me) and proceeded to enter downwind since it is likely I would have seen him if he was already on downwind, however once in the pattern and hearing him call base, flying straight and level to extend the base was the better course of action. If you want to avoid ghosts, get out of the haunted house.

Thanks for the great replies. It's pretty cool to be able to just go online and exchange ideas with older and bolder pilots.
I am post solo.  I hired this gentleman to check me out in order to take the practical. I haven't flown for 6 months and
just needed someone to see how I am doing.  I know he wasn't just trying to see what I would do because he reiterated
in the debriefing after our flight that it is way more important to fly the pattern than what anyone else is doing.
It was surreal.   I spoke with the flight school owner and he said I should have done the 360 and he would
also have extended his downwind as I did.  This instructor seemed pretty good at first but started becoming
increasingly hyper acting and then the above situation occurred.
 I will be flying with a different instructor in a few days.  This really happened. I'm not making it up.
Sometimes 63 year old people do flip a biscuit I guess and he might have been starting right there.
I feel a lot better but I'm not flying for a day just to get it out of my system.
It kind of upset me as you can probably tell.
Anyway, Blue Skies.
