I give the controller a lot of credit for holding it all together as well as he did. I know it's part of training, but I'd have thought, if resources were available, he'd have gotten some relief.
A little chilling -- MYF was my home away from home airport for most of 2005, and every position report allowed me to remember the area well. Mt. Healy, Mt. Soledad, 15, 8, etc. Even a couple of the tail numbers.
RIP to the woman who lost her life, and God bless and help the family.
