What I didn't get in this clip was where the plane was.  Obviously on the ground but did this all occur on the taxi to the gate or did he stop the plane somewhere?

Also for "Pushing Tin", you have to watch the scene(s) where the two ATC went to taste the Wake Turbulance on the runway under a 747..  that part is too funny (also seems fake).. :lol:

There was a TV movie called blackout and it starred Eric Stoltz.  The movie is about a mid-air collision.  Everyone blames the controller, but faulty radar equipment is the real cause.

Sounds like a movie NATCA would endorse. :lol:

I just watched Pushing tin and I liked it! As a person who is determined to become an atc, this movie is the right thing for a beginner to understand few rules and few things about atc.

either you make it, or you dont
no messin around with another controllers' private life
things are either black, or white, no such thing as between.

All in all, great movie for a atc fan like me. Can wait to get Ground control.

Any other you might suggest?

Ground Control is the most horrible ATC movie I have seen.

If you know anything about ATC you'll cringe at just about every piece of "phraseology" and every situation. They put in all of those ATC jokes you see on the internet that are actually funny when you read them and not funny in the movie. What is interesting is that they shots of the scopes are real DSR shots by the phraselogy that goes with the shots are completely wrong. I don't even know what facillty they are supposed to be at. Its apparently PHX but they seem to be working ABQ CTR and PHX APP and they are at PHX airport. All of the airport shots are of LAX or ONT  :D

I could go on. Really really bad.

dude, ground control was by far the best movie ever!!! i mean, with the whole..."oh, the key word to controlling is "expedite", and then the girl is like, "oh, well then, expedite...huh...wow...this is great!!! yay!!! everything is going to be great!!! yay!!" (being a bit sarcastic)

then of course there is that controller who talks really fast and says "break" in between each call...not waiting for a response--im pretty sure thats in violation of 7110.65 (correct me if im wrong though)

the best part...and this seems to be true about most movies, is how directors can never seem to use the same airplane. first its a 747, then its suddenly something like a 727, then when it lands its obviously a 737 (if i remember correctly). In the movie Red Eye, it was the same thing!!! it switches between a 767, and A320 and i think a 737--(the interior was a 767 i think--definately not a 737/A320 (it was twin isle))

just my two cents...

peace, Bauer

Red eye was one of the worst... It was a 767-A330-A320-737200!!- and one nose-shot it's even a 727!

in the 'landing sequence' of that movie, a 767 is on final approach, an A320 touches down and then a 737-300 vacates the runway. all within 20 seconds

Thats the first thing I noticed in Red Eye.  I was paying more attention to the planes than the plot.  sad isn't it?

Not a complete ATC movie, but a pretty realistic ATC scene (IMO) found in the second scene of "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."

Quote
[AirEast Pilot]: OK Center. AirEast 31. The traffic has turned. He's
heading right for my windshield. We're turning right...

(A CONFLICT ALERT sounds)

[Air Traffic Controller]: AirEast 31, descend and maintain flight level
three-one-zero. Break, Allegheny triple four. Turn right thirty degrees
immediately...

[AirEast Pilot}: AirEast 31, Roger. The traffic is quite luminous and is
exhibiting some non-ballistic motion. Over.

[Air Traffic Controller]: Roger, AirEast 31. Continue to descend at your
discretion, over.

[AirEast Pilot]: OK, Center. Center pilot's discretion is approved. The
traffic is approaching head-on...and really moving. Went by us, right now.
That was really close.

[Supervisor]: Ask them if they want to report officially.

[Air Traffic Controller]: TWA 517, do you want to report a UFO? Over.
   (No response) TWA 517, do you want to report a UFO? Over.

[TWA Pilot]: Negative. We don't want to report.

[Air Traffic Controller]: AirEast 31, do you wish to report a UFO? Over.

[AirEast Pilot]: Negative. We don't want to report one of those either.

[Air Traffic Controller]: AirEast 31, do you wish to file a report of any
kind to us?

[AirEast Pilot]: I wouldn't know what kind of report to file, Center.

[Air Traffic Controller]: AirEast 31, me neither. I'll try to track traffic
and destination, over.

WOW, have we ever gone off-topic!  Anyways, back ON TOPIC...

I contacted the person who ran the blog, and it didn't sound like he knew much more about the clip either.  It may have been recorded by the controller himself.  I searched all around online but found no news stories or anything about this.  :)

Given the sound quality of the controller's voice vs. the pilot's voices, it sounds as though it was recorded at the controller's location. His voice doesen't sound as if it's a radio transmission, but recorded directly from a microphone. Maybe it's from the tower's actual log tape?

Back when someone could still meet de-planing passengers at the gate, my brother in law did something similar. He got a couple dozen of his fellow passengers to each hand one red rose to my sister as they got off the plane. He waited until everyone else was off the plane, and then walked off and got down on one knee, in front my sister, and everyone else from the plane, and as she stood there, in front of a bunch of onlookers, with a couple dozen roses in her arms, he proposed...

Wow, when was that?  I know some smaller airports have very little security, and though you can't do this, you get close enough with 1 wall of glass seperating you from the aprob.  :)

Talk about an blast from the past (4 year old post) but thanks for resurrecting it.  Very nice to hear this, especially after the rather crazy discussion in the ATC/AA incident at JFK..... :P

Thanks for posting - I proposed the other day, a nerve racking experience but he held his composure and did great!
I don't proclaim to be the best pilot in the world but I'm safe.
