Justin Beiber charter smoke in cockpit
« on: February 10, 2014, 05:02:12 PM »
Anyone get the audio of the G4 that Justin Beiber and co. chartered from Ontario, Canada
to Teterboro on Jan 31? According to CNN "Law enforcement sources told CNN that the pilots donned oxygen masks to keep them from inhaling the pot smoke. The pilots were concerned the smoke would result in them failing drug tests, law enforcement sources told CNN."  The full story is at
http://www.cnn.com/2014/02/07/showbiz/bieber-flight/

I think this was the flight. http://flightaware.com/live/flight/N728LB/history/20140131/1630Z/CYKF/KTEB

I tried the archive and couldn't find it. I was curious if the pilots sad anything on the radio about
having to deploy oxygen because the passengers wouldn't stop smoking pot.

I can't believe I'm spending time on something that involves Justin Bieber, but anyway ....

His flight is using the callsign "Gotham 72" (GTH72). On the archives you can pick them up in the descent working Boston Center (134.30), then to New York Approach (127.60), then to Tower (119.50). All communications are standard, there is no mention of anything abnormal.

ZBW-SWF05-Jan-31-2014-1830Z (from 18:45:30 to 18:55:05)
KEWR-NY-App-Sat-Jan-31-2014-1830Z (from 18:55:00 to end)
KEWR-NY-App-Sat-Jan-31-2014-1900Z (from start to 19:04:00)
KTEB2-Jan-31-2014-1900Z (from 19:04:30 to ? blocked)

At the begining of the TEB Tower archive you can hear Chopper 12 talking about investigating incidents of white powder at the Stadium and some nearby Hotels as possible anthrax. Lots of helicopter traffic buzzing around the stadium.

Thanks for your trouble. I didn't know the plane had a different call sign from the N number.
