ATOOC: A Sad Day In The Sky
07:51

In this epiosde of Air Traffic Out Of Control, we hear an American Eagle Embraer E175 depart from Chicago's O’Hare Airport bound for Columbus, Ohio in November of 2022.

As the aircraft takes off, the captain in training loses consciousness, forcing the check airman in the right seat to assume control and return to the airport. 

You can hear him audibly shaken in this clip as he tries to navigate the plane back to safety in order to get help for his colleague.

ATOOC Fly By: For The Birds
06:04

Bird strikes are are a common hazard for pilots as they take off from airports around the globe.

In this Air Traffic Out Of Control Fly By, a Jet Blue aircraft took off from Palm Beach Airport (PBI) on January 15, 2023 but soon had to declare an emergency and return to the airport after a bird strike.

ATOOC Fly By: Close Call at JFK
04:27

In today's Air Traffic Out Of Control Fly By we have a recent clip from a close call at JFK.

At around 8:45 p.m. last Friday evening, Delta Air Lines Flight 1943 was taking off from Runway 4L when  American Airlines flight 106 crossed the same runway. 

In this recording, you will hear the moment an air traffic controller noticed the incident and a potential collision was avoided. 

The Delta aircraft rejected its takeoff run and stopped approximately 1,000 feet from where the American Airlines wide body jet had crossed. 

Investigations are being conducted by the NTSB to get to the bottom of why this occurred.

ATOOC: NOTAM My Problem
10:13

On January 11th, some corrupt files in the antiquated FAA software system caused a nationwide outage across the United States which grounded flight departures across the country.

The system which went down (NOTAM) provides advisories to pilots on safety-critical conditions at airports and other areas aircraft may traverse, including everything from warnings about bird activity to runway construction.  

So, as you can imagine, it's a critical system for pilots in ensuring safety.

In this recording, you can hear the confused team at JFK grappling with the situation.

After investigation into the problem, the issue seems to be rooted in a software developer error and the inclusion of a corrupt file in the fragile, outdated software.

The issue was resolved by the following day, but not before over 1 million people had their flight plans disrupted.

ATOOC: Sully..."We can't do it"
06:05

On this day (January 15th) in 2009, Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger landed US Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River after the Airbus A320 serving the flight struck a flock of birds shortly after take-off from New York, losing all engine power. Unable to reach any airport for an emergency landing due to their low altitude, Sully and co-pilot Jeffrey Skiles glided the plane to a ditching in the Hudson River off Midtown Manhattan. All 155 people on board were rescued by nearby boats, with only a few serious injuries.

What an incredilbe aviation story.
