US Airways Flight 1825 made a nose gear up landing at KIAH around 2207 Central.

Link to story with video of landing from KTRK TV: http://abc13.com/news/plane-makes-emergency-landing-without-nose-gear-at-iah/511101/

Also here are three images taken by passengers after they evacuated the aircraft. I shortened the KIAH Tower audio, it runs from the first mention of an aircraft with gear issues all the way till landing.

EDIT: Not sure why but I am unable to upload the audio clip nor the original audio files I got from the site. I keep getting a "Timed Out" message. Well if anyone is interested the audio clips are:

KIAH Tower 2-10-2015
0300-0330
0330-0400
0400-0430

Sorry about this.

Nifty stuck mic feature on the g1000 and other garmin radios. If you have a stuck mic and transmit continuously for 35 seconds it will cut your mic off.

I wish I were close enough to scan MCO, I have been listin using the LIVE ATC app. I was trying to figure out what feed was best to listen to.

ATC2lyfe and swa4678,
I was thinking real time voice recognize and translation would be a good app, and datalink to your phone/pad just with your tail number...it is extremely hard.

Thanks for the suggestions, great ones! I think I will have to just work hard and harder on my ATC communication skills. Smiley

The "KMCO Arrival (West)" feed is listed as scanning 125.550 and 134.050, normally this feed is usually simulcasting the final controller on 127.750. I have heard where they split off the arrivals final west onto this radio (Config 5) but I can't tell if they are using 125.550 or 134.050 (if the radio is actually scanning those frequencies) ?

After further checking it appears that the "KMCO Arrival (West)" radio is also scanning 123.850, they were using it as west final this afternoon. What are the actual frequencies this radio is scanning ?

Config 5 (at 1430 EST this afternoon)

124.800 - departures east
120.150 - departures west
128.375 - arrivals initial east and west
127.750 - arrivals final east
123.850 - arrivals final west

I'm new here, so I feel the need to ask: is the quality of the clip indicative of the exact quality of radio communications b/w air and ground? I can hardly make out half the stuff they're saying!

It gets easier with practice.  The antenna isn't necessarily ideally positioned, so the quality may not be exactly what you would hear when you are airborne, but on average it's fairly close.  I'm not having much trouble understanding what is said.

I am based at RBD, came back from AUS about the same time of this accident, and flying that evening was pretty challenging.  Very low cigs, gusty north winds, low vis with a rain mist.  All of those environmental factors combined with flying the biggest twin Cessna made makes for a pretty big workload for one person regardless of experience.  Based on the track log on Flightaware and my own experience flying that night, he was solid IMC for at least 30 minutes leading up to the crash.  I was assigned similar altitudes coming back due to DAL and DFW arrivals and departures.  That long in IMC is stressful for any pilot, but then you don't have an extra set of trained eyes to crosscheck everything while managing that big twin Cessna, it wouldn't surprise me that too high of a workload contributed to pilot error.

are some of them just reserved and not always used. Does all traffic arriving east use one and all West arrivals use the other?

I'm not the expert for MCO ops, but from what I've heard after checking some of the archives, these seem to be typical configurations used ...

Config 1

124.800 - all arrivals and departures (overnight shift)

Config 2

124.800 - all departures and arrivals
127.750 - arrivals final

Config 3

124.800 - departures and arrivals east
120.150 - departures and arrivals west
127.750 - arrivals final

Config 4

124.800 - departures east
120.150 - departures west
128.375 - arrivals east and west
127.750 - arrivals final

Config 5

124.800 - departures east
120.150 - departures west
128.375 - arrivals east
    ?       - arrivals west (?)
127.750 - arrivals final east
    ?       - arrivals final west (either 125.550 or 134.050 ?)

128.375 is a relatively new frequency and not covered by LiveATC.

The "KMCO Arrival (West)" feed is listed as scanning 125.550 and 134.050, normally this feed is usually simulcasting the final controller on 127.750. I have heard where they split off the arrivals final west onto this radio (Config 5) but I can't tell if they are using 125.550 or 134.050 (if the radio is actually scanning those frequencies) ? There is also the arrivals west in this Config but they don't seem to be using 134.050, at least on the archives I checked, so not sure what frequency is used or if they even split 128.375 ?

Anyone have any more info. ?

Sorry I called them alpha tags, I was asking a for a decryption of each frequency, are some of them just reserved and not always used. Does all traffic arriving east use one and all West arrivals use the other?

No problem.  smiley  Alpha tags have a specific meaning so I was confused about what you were looking for.

You are talking about sector division...no easy answers...every ATC facility has SOP's (Standard Operating Procedures).  These SOP's dictate things like how sectors are divided up, what runway configurations are in use based on the winds, and frequencies in use at those times.  Sometimes frequencies are "combined" - and you will hear the same controller on several different frequencies, with pilots responding on only one frequency, or a couple of frequencies.

I don't know the Orlando Approach SOP since I don't fly in that airspace often...and they are usually internal procedures that pilots might not understand or know about.  I am pretty familiar with the SOP's in New York and Boston airspace, where I fly (and listen) more often than other locations.
