A billion planes!
« on: April 27, 2007, 12:14:07 PM »
Was listening to JFK tower this morning, around 1325z.  Takeoff/landing on the 4s, when all depts over wavey and shipp were stopped due to volume/wx.  Gridlock was getting bad and the taxi in was becoming difficult.  Tower reported the ground controllers were very busy due to "they had a billion planes" taxiing.  That's what I call a busy day!  I guess that's why I just love taxiing around JFK.  It all begins a little after the 25:00 minute mark of the 13z archive and into the 1330 archive (both are attached)

yea im listening to the ground archive at that same time...and I can't even here ground.  It's nonstop reroutes from basically anyone already cleared out of the ramp...nice little mess

plane to ground: "which fix is open?"
unknown voice on frequency: "none"
