Its always a great joy when you get a controller who is incredibly helpful as this was. He gave the Colgan, a poor little SF-340 probably getting the snot beat out of them with those winds, lots of information, and was able to joke about it in the process. He's not afraid to admit when a mistake was made (sending GoJet onto rwy 10).
Couple months ago I was landing at JAX, except a thunderstorm cell was moving right across the airport. The controller basically gave us the choice of where to go, what runway to use, and what to do. We just put ourselves into a holding pattern over the OM for about 10 mins while the cell passed, and he told us to just shoot the approach when we were confortable. It's not like it was a slow time, this was about 3 in the afternoon. Its these types of controllers who really make the best out of a bad situation.
