And an event it is. A1 paid a visit to KLAS on Tuesday, and KLAX on Wednesday, with appropriate TFRs, restring my neighbour in Vegas from his first ever flight. Anywho, I happened to tell him about LiveATC and while he went down to KLAS to catch A1 coming in, I listened to it on Glenn's feed. Routine stuff here, A1 gets ILS 25R, skies are cleared for it, ground stop in effect, and the frequency is dead until he's handed to Tower. then the chaos begins.
Stacked holds in the most unusual places (read: inbound leg is on the 25L LOC, right hand turns, hold 10 miles out on the same LOC, 2000ft above the glidepath), along with the published holds on the STARs, all with very long EFCs. Emergency almost declared from a jet with minimum fuel and no alternate field to divert to, in short, complete chaos. I'm not editing this clip as you hear A1 at the beginning and the song/dance shortly after.http://archive-server.liveatc.net/klas/KLAS-May-26-2009-2300Z.mp3
There may be more when A1 departs KLAX tomorrow (there really wasn't much to hear on landing, as the South complex handled all other traffic, while A1 got the North complex all to itself). If anyone wants to find it in the archive, it's the May 26 2009 1930Z clip in the archive, 21:20 in to the clip.
