Stumbled upon this link where there is an actual pilot petition to have a tower controller at KMRY removed. Supposedly this is guy is absolutely terrible! Based on the link his initials are IB. I assume those are his operating initials.
Just wondering if there are any examples of this guy working.

" I also removed one irrelevant expletive."
Expletives are NEVER irrelevant to the trained accident investigator.
I am concerned that a rise in anti-science fundamentalist religious fervor here and abroad is generating increasing pressue both subtle and inexorable to bowdlerize research and particularly critical communication via recordings and transcripts such as this.
The frequency, tone, and specific selection of expletives provides great insight into the perceptions, perspectives, anxiety levels, frustrations, resignation, perceived or disregarded danger, and other critical aspects of the cockpit environment and accident concatenation. They often mark the first discernible onset of concern long before alarms flash. The first expletive on the USAir427 CVR for example is not harsh and delivered almost lightheartedly revealing that the crew saw no threat from the momentary turbulence or felt their initial extreme control response was unwarranted.  The selection and tone of San Diego PSA expletives by contrast confirm certain of the crew felt their situation was hopeless and had ceased to function as airmen.
Censorship of such core information must be deplored and discouraged.   Accident investigation is a scientific secular pursuit of truth to achieve future accident prevention and should not be constrained by medæval sensibilities and superstition.  We're all educated grown-ups here, one hopes.

Hi Everyone,

I am looking for as much pilot transcript as I can get my hands on for a research project. This basically means text written down that real pilots have said in a normal scenario, for example 'American one two three descending flight level three twenty turning left onto one eighty eight'. Preferably for ground, approach and take-off freqs.

Don't mind which airports or countries but preferably American or British.

Does anybody have any suggestions where I could get this from?

Thanks in advance

Based on the only two posts of his, Sounds like "mstngpilot" doesn't have many friends in N90 and/or "washed out" himself  evil

He is a nice guy, but will be retiring in a few months.  Don't let this session fool you, he may be a nice guy, but isn't exactly known as a strong controller.  This was an early morning, slow time before the departures really started pumping out.  I am sorry, but we are paid to be professional, not say all this "greetings" crap.  A "hello" or a "good day" is fine, but he goes over the top.  Try to find a recording of him working a session when it gets busy.  And you will see the line between nice guy and safe controller kind of blur a little.  If you were flying, which would you rather have.

Any idea why ATC didn't vector him to Mansfield? It
 doesn't have a GPS or ILS approach, just a localizer
 I think but anything would be better than  sending
him backwards in IMC while he is gliding at 3k. If he sent
him to Mansfield upon request for nearest airport it
looks like he might have made it. It would have been
 straight to a a right base to runway 14 Better than trying to land
on a highway coming out of IMC.

WSSS has been in a state of disrepair for a while, actually.  The current feed is too far from the airport.  We're working on a new one which will hopefully be up in a few weeks.
