It's good.
Very strange without the controller though. Any way you could include that?

Sorry, this was done from home and I don't live near enough to EGSS to pick up the controller as well, unless anyone else has it and we can mix the two?

Not without getting the person in the UK arrested for violating the British Telephony Act. That is why there aren't any British feeds.

So am I in the clear then by only posting one side of the conversation?

Or should I be expecting a knock at the door very shortly?

I'm assured recorded clips are OK to post - It's the streaming of it live that's an issue. I've posted a few hour long clips of ops at Edinburgh and haven't been slapped on the wrist (Yet!)

You're right.  Recordings are ok - live feeds are not. 

That being said, Cambridge in England has a live feed. http://www.camflight.com:8000/egsc.m3u by www.camflight.com


I don't proclaim to be the best pilot in the world but I'm safe.

Definitly...I mean I've stood right next to a police officer with my airband radio at the airport...Even the Armed Police gave me info of the best place to spot...even though they got rid of the spotting facility...so pretty much ok    :)

That pilot is the consummate professional.  He makes some of the seasoned UAL pilots (it seems like they're all old school) seem like n00bs.  Very cool clip, thanks a lot!

As has been said, recordings are fine to post.

I met the watch that were controlling air force 1 today. Apparently the entourage of helis caused quite a stir.

at about 20 seconds into recording: "Good evening Director, AirForce One passing 7,200 for 6,000 feet".

The Transition altitude for Stanstead is 6,000 so anything higher is a Flight Level on the standard pressure. He was given a descent to altitude 6,000 feet, so presumably the altimeter would have been changed to the local pressure at some point in the descent.

Guess it's correct to report in as above, instead of, "passing FL72 for altitude 6,000 feet". Anyone know which is more correct?
It appears that the transition level when the local pressure is 1022millibars is FL60 so FL70 would have been an available/useable flight level.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flight_level

or the questions as a US equivalent "Descending through FL192 for 17,000 feet" or "Descending through 19,200 for 17,000 feet"?
