Started off with the ZOA feeds following Delta 1082 (OAK to SLC) which got diverted into Reno.  This was followed up by a Southwest flight being diverted to Sacramento due to windshear and another United flight went around as well.  After the crews finished up after the Delta flight's oil leak, another aircraft had landing gear issues.   This was the windiest day in Reno in a long time - so much so that most of us long timers can't remember another day windier.

Not trying to split hairs on you Dave, but seeing "Air Traffic Controller (hobbyist, VATSIM, IVAO, etc.)" makes my skin crawl. It's like a guy who plays a lot of Call of Duty calling himself a soldier.

That makes your skin crawl? If they walk into a facility as a trainee and say they're ATC's because of VATSIM then they are going to get made fun of.  However,  this is a site that mostly has enthusiasts so it's no big deal. As is said time after time in real facilities, grow thicker skin.

I used to do VATSIM when I was a teenager. Looking back on it, I don't think it is particularly useful for real world application but it was fun and to try to belittle someone because they identify on this website as being a virtual controller is childish.

As I recall, the comment got all the attention it earned.  smiley

I just joined LiveATC forum. I'm in the San Fernando Valley area. Why did KBUR go down? Right now I feed LAX ADB-S data using Raspberry Pi, etc to Flightradar24. I notice I see no commercial traffic around Bob Hope Burbank airport. I went to LiveATC and it shows Status:  Feed Down

I don't know if I could be of help.

Controller at Memphis Center
You may have made an appearance on my feed depending on your sector. Smiley

I don't think any of the sectors I work are on this site.

Hmmm - for souls, he reported "119 plus crew of 4, so it's 123, and uh, 119 total..."

Based on some verbiage in a signed employment contract, perhaps the insurance company(ies) only care about 119 of the souls on board? evil
I think it was a minor misreading. The aircraft had 113 Pax + 5 crew (ref: avherald). I think he thought the 119 was not including passengers and incorrectly added, then corrected himself.

A Piper Navajo N748NP made an emergency landing on a canal bank in Boca Raton, Florida. 
I heard this happen LIVE on Saturday February 28, 2015 on the Miami Approach 119.7 feed, however it wasn't captured in the archives so I can't share it. Here is what I remember: The pilot said he was having problems with one engine, he was asked if he wanted to declare an emergency, he said no. He was also asked if he needed emergency vehicles standing by at the Pompano Beach airport, he said no again. A short time later he said he was not going to make it to the airport. He was told how far away the Pompano Beach (PMP), Ft. Lauderdale Executive (FXE), and Boca Raton (BCT) airports were. The Florida Turnpike and Sawgrass Expressway locations were pointed out to him as possible landing sites. That was all I remember hearing.
