Windshear escape caught on feed yesterday?
« on: May 12, 2008, 10:01:48 AM »
Hey all.  There are some of you that are experts at the feeds with finding stuff and splicing and editing clips together, so I give you this.

Yesterday I was flying one of our 700s from MDW-ATL.  Flew the visual approach to Rwy 26R by hand.  Checked in with tower and they called the winds something like 290@25G41.  I clicked off the autopilot to better control the aircraft in the turbulence.  On short final, about 400 feet off the ground our eGPWS windshear warning went off which mandates a hand-flown go around with all emergency power from the engines (called APR).  I guess tower saw us rocketing up in the sky because I think they gave us a quick altitude cap (I was kinda busy at the time taming the beast).

This all occurred on 5/11 probably around 2315ish zulu time.  If anyone finds it, I'd be interested to hear how the others were getting in or if there were many go-arounds.  Unfortunately with all of the warnings going off at the time (there were multiple alarms/chimes/call outs going on) I didn't really get a chance to hear what tower said or if the guys behind us made it in.

Oh yeah, callsign was COM292

Aww shucks.  Sorry guys.  I tried to give you something interesting to listen to.

Anyone want to set up an ATL feed?  There sure are a lot of Freqs you could do.
