It is gratuitous and inhumane, not to mention highly disturbing - for LiveATC.net to release this without regard for the families of this tragedy. How hard would it have been, to edit out the screaming ? The press ran with this audio clip, and also chose to play all of it. No warning was given to listeners by you or the press.
I sure as shit, didn't need to hear that. Whether it came from the helicopter pilot or fixed wing pilot, is irrelevant.
You also didn't need to cop the attitude with your reply based on your opinion.
"LiveATC.net" didn't "release" anything. They provide a free, uncensored service to the public. Someone unaffiliated with the site decided to cut the clip from the archives and post it. Since then, Dave decided out of respect to remove the post with that clip (though I suspect the full transmission is still accessible via the archives).
Here's your warning (again, from someone affiliated with LiveATC.net): If you don't want to hear a sensationalist piece of reporting, don't watch the news. Ever. If you want to blame someone for what some reporter/producer decided to put into that piece of reporting... first, kindly locate the virtual door at your 6 o'clock that led you to these forums and use it. Then go find the news station.
Well said, SWA4678.
