Listening to Dave Schoen is always nice. I have a video that I taped back in 2001 about JFK with him in it. Shucks, now I really want the other parts of that. I have been trying to find documentaries based entirely off FAA facilites or ATC in general.

This was on TV a while back.  If I remember correctly, there are a lot of clips of them working in the tower, and you see some of the famous JFK ground anger coming out when pilots screw up.

I have a feeling it might be broadcasted under a different title - couldn't find any torrents relating to it or a video on amazon to grab.

in case you haven't already found it, the full title of the documentary was:

Equinox - Near Miss

It was broadcasted on the BBC i think in 1999 in the UK.
I've tried briefly to find the full version on Google video or You tube with no hope, so if you or anybody else reading this manages to find it, please give me a buzz. =]

Kind of like how Don Brown names his ATC column "Say Again?" over at avweb.

I'm an air traffic controller at NY TRACON, JFK sector, and would love to know where I could get a copy of this.  Anyone know how?

Thanks for posting that link, that's a great video.  It was really neat to see video of Dulles TRACON before it was consolidated at Potomac.  The old school drop-tubes brought back some memories.

Thanks,

I thought Discovery Wings was pushed by the Military Channel some 2 odd years ago

Equinox : Near Miss
Equinox was actually Channel 4 TV series, not BBC.
I'd love to see the whole thing, but no one seems to have it up online.

I could listen to that guy all day! Somehow, it makes sense he's in ATC; listen to how fast he speaks!!!
