Authorities say they're searching for a small medical transport plane with four people aboard that has been missing for about eight hours in Northern California.

Tested new receiver site for KORD yesterday…hope to finish our receiver move over the next few weeks. We will likely end up with two receiver sites.

KBTV is off due to some network gear replacements.  Hopefully it will be back up in the next few days.

Recorded via Liveatc flash.
As you can hear lots of confusion with way too much radio traffic.

Problem Found / Fixed !

The HF feeds for USAF air/ground from Peoria, IL have been repaired.  (11.175, 13.200, 8.992, etc.)

On or about 07-25-2016 the facility took a direct lightning strike.  Some of the results included a degradation of performance of both the receiver pre-amplifier system and the receiver distribution amplifier.  These units did not fail, however their performance was greatly reduced.

Thanks to the eagle-eared listeners who contacted us reporting an issue.  We are pleased to report that both units have been repaired and the monitor site is back to full performance.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

I work in an European ARTCC. For us it's not compulsory to ask the remaining fuel in time, as far as I know. It's probably a silly question, but I wonder why US ATC must ask this question when an aircraft declares an emergency. What really matters for me are pilots intentions... But I probably miss something here, there must be a reason.

When it comes to fire fighters requiring fuel remaining in kg / pounds, I wonder how they deal with it... I recently had a "pan-pan" (possible tyre burst), and the fire fighters wanted to know the "remaining fuel in kg"... The thing is, the aircraft was still 30 minutes from landing! Did it help the fire fighters to know that at this point of the flight he had 4600kg of fuel remaining? Because by the time he lands, the fuel left in the tanks will be a lot different...

I don't know about official requirements, but being a European En Route ATC I know for sure that we want:

- Callsign
- Flight level (maintaining, or climbing to / descending to)
- Any direct Route

So you were perfectly right.

The report position is not really useful, since 99% of the time we have radar identified you before your call. Although sometimes we're kind of "behind traffic" and may ask you "say position?" Smiley

In the first incident an aircraft blows a tyre on landing. Shortly after, an experimental CubCrafters CC11-160, on landing, struck a runway light and went off the side of the runway.
