Thanks guy, this one is one of the best I've heard! ChristopherT
There is one thing that strikes me: The flight crew did not declare an emergency. (I know, flying the plane has priority...}
ATC can declare an emergency for the aircraft at the facilities discretion (JO 7110.65S 10-2-5(a)). As you correctly pointed out, flying the aircraft is the number one priority.
do think that their work had little impact on the outcome of this accident.
There's 5 of us huddled over my desk at work listening to your audio.Great job assembling the clip! Thanks!
I bet the controller was relieved at the outcome. But both the controller and the pilot did a great job of handling the situation. Thanks for posting.
