JetBlue had to stand on the brakes to miss a ground vehicle crossing in front of him and was reporting. Meanwhile, Air China kept butting in.

Great clip and thanks for providing the requested additional information.

I think it would be a great idea to always give time and date with ATC clips, would make it a lot easier for other people to trace the occurrence back.

Keep the clips coming

 :? :cry: :cry:

I missed something.  I listened to that clip twice, and I heard the Air China talking too much, but I didn't hear anything else.  Obviously I'm whacked because everyone else heard something, but somebody please tell me what it was....

Peace

At about 54 seconds into the clip, you can hear a reference to 'brakes", and "we got a number off the truck". About a minute later there's conversation about what the truck looked like.

I'm sorry, I completely misread the first post!  I thought that the near collision was between the Air China and JetBlue.
