This is not far away from me. I don't suppose there is any audio on this.

Probably wont be much if any. They were on KSUE unicom frequency. The controllers were able to talk to her via portable/dialable radios only.
Kick butt, take no names, they dont matter anyways

abc news had most of the audio as they talked her down. Sounded like it got little stressed at the end keeping her from stalling it or diving into the runway.

She even lost one engine, and performed a go-around, entire audio recording here....

Apparently she had taken flying lessons and even soloed earlier in her life, EAA did a story of the pilot who talked her down here...Amazing story.
