Listener Forum / Re: Suggestion: maybe more ZMP feeds?
« Last post by RonR on Today at 07:02:51 PM »
It would be great to have more ZMP feeds but, for that to happen, it would involve volunteers offering to provide those feeds.  Most of the LiveATC feeds are provided by volunteers so hopefully someone will see this post and realize what a great idea it would be to expand ZMP coverage (or any other enroute center coverage for that matter)!  Hey, you never know!

Listener Forum / Suggestion: maybe more ZMP feeds?
« Last post by guscarus767 on Today at 04:24:14 PM »
Hey everybody! Apologies if this kind of post isn’t allowed in advance. I’ve been tracking a lot of flights out of MSP lately and I’ve realized that there are hardly any Minneapolis Center frequencies on LiveATC. If anyone wants to feed them, this is an open invitation to do so (assuming you’re in the Twin Cities metro, that is, which I am not). Thanks for taking the time to read this!

Apparently a laptop battery in a passengers bag began to smoke prompting the evacuation...

Aviation Accidents/Incidents / AAL2045 Evacuation at KSFO
« Last post by RonR on July 12, 2024, 05:02:07 PM »
Earlier today, AAL2045 was just about to depart from KSFO enroute to KMIA when the aircraft was evacuated via the slides due to smoke in the cabin.  It appears the aircraft was still on the ramp when this occurred.  So far no injuries have been reported.

It's been almost two weeks since it stopped working again. Any ETA on when it's coming back would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Listener Forum / Re: EWR Approach Freq Changes
« Last post by dave on July 12, 2024, 11:22:39 AM »
Until about a month ago NY TRACON pretty consistently used 128.800 and 120.150 for EWR approach. They must have made some changes because now they are primarily using 120.150 and 132.700, with 125.500 and 132.800 in use sporadically. 127.600 is still used for TEB.

There is no feed with coverage of 132.700 or 132.800. Is it possible to adjust a tuner to the new freqs? There are active feeds for 128.550 and 128.800 but neither freq seems to be in use anymore so maybe those can be retuned. Thanks.

N90 has been having numerous frequency interference and performance issues in the Newark area. Most of the frequency changes have been temporary, and we have an inside line into what's going on. We'll add a feed for 132.7 soon since it may be in more regular use. They have even gone back to 128.55 a few times even though 128.8 had been in use for the ARD Sector. From our receiver site near EWR, 132.8 is not a useful frequency to cover since it is aircraft only, but we'l monitor and see what we can hear since it's been a while since it was last checked. The ground transmitter for that is at/near Solberg (out of range of our EWR rx site).

Aviation Audio Clips / World Atlantic MD83 at El Paso on Jul 10th 2024 engine fire
« Last post by KB4TEZ on July 12, 2024, 08:35:24 AM »

A World Atlantic Airlines McDonnell Douglas MD-83, registration N804WA performing flight WL-101 from El Paso,TX to McAllen,TX (USA) with 141 people on board, was in the initial climb out of El Paso's runway 04 when the crew declared Mayday reporting they had lost an engine (JT8D). The aircraft stopped the climb at 5500 feet and positioned for a return to runway 04, then switched to runway 26L. After touch down on runway 26L the crew reported they had a fire on their right hand engine. Emergency Services put the fire out.

El Paso's Emergency Services reported there were no injuries, they were able to "knock" the fire down.

Listener Forum / Re: Controller Reception on JFK Area No1 Feed

I always appreciate separate feeds when it can be done.  Much easier to follow routine operations, and you don't miss big chunks of unusual operations while the scanner is on other frequencies.

Aviation Audio Clips / AAL590 Blown Tire on Takeoff from KTPA
« Last post by RonR on July 11, 2024, 08:52:47 AM »
AAL590 had just started their takeoff roll when a tire blew out on the right-side wing landing gear.  Video of the incident clearly shows the tire blowing out at a fairly high rate of speed but the crew rejected the takeoff and turned left off the end of the runway.  They stopped there and waited for emergency equipment to arrive.  No injuries were reported and the passengers deplaned safely and the flight was cancelled.
