conversation continues #4 engine out
4:03 the alarms at the tower go off
4:30 the airport closes.

Attached is a compilation of relevant audio from several different Bradley Tower and Y90 (Bradley Approach) positions.

A very tough and sad day. I taxied right past this plane and crew when they were here on display in Nashua NH this past Saturday.

RIP and heartfelt condolences to the families involved in this tragedy.

thank you to kmayes314 for this.
at the very end, the delta female pilot says it best with one word.
