A small plane with one pilot and two passengers has crashed near Prado Dam in the Corona, CA area. Corona FD is reporting no injuries and no fire. This may be on my KONT feed but I haven't had time to check the archives yet.

Likely Boston sectors to the northeast (e.g. MERIT HFD PUT) are ZBW19/134.0 and ZBW46/multiple.  If the initial route is toward the east (e.g. BETTE ACK or HAPIE YAHOO), ZBW32/135.8, ZBW31/124.52, ZBW18/128.75.  All of these are monitored.

There are some very good maps of high altitude frequencies on this message board.  The northeast U.S. is at:

So as far as I know, a flight from JFK to LHR would go from JFK Ground on either 121.9 or 121.65 (both on the JFK Ground feed), then the flight would switch to Kennedy tower (119.1 most of the time). Departure frequency is usually 135.9 (NY Departure JFK feed), but I've noticed that at night they combine departure with approach on 125.7 (ROBER sector). After this the flight is most likely handed off to Boston center...don't remember the frequency off the top of my head. As for EGLL, it is currently illegal to broadcast ATC feeds in the UK, so you won't be able to listen to any ATC from EGLL or from the rest of the UK, unfortunately.
try the EWR final or North Arrival frequencies...hopefully one of them will work.
Aviation News (General) / Coyote spotted at North Perry Airport

Only in Florida

PEMBROKE PINES, FLA. (WSVN) - A coyote stopped air traffic after it was spotted at North Perry Airport.

On Wednesday morning, a letter was distributed by wildlife and airport officials noting coyotes were in the area and to be aware of them on the tarmac.

One coyote was captured on live video footage running across the landing area of the airport in Pembroke Pines.

Sources said the airport is flooded with rabbits and rats which is likely the reason these predators have been wandering around these past few weeks.
Officials said they hope the coyote will leave on its own if not they will hire trappers to capture the coyote.

I love his matter of fact approach (pun intended)

Now, more than ever, it is an opportune time to consider a career in aviation. However, it is crucial to acknowledge that this profession is not without its share of challenges that require diligent preparation and training.

During my own formative years as a pilot, I quickly realized that theory alone could not prepare me for the real-world challenges that aviation presents. It was through facing these trials head-on that I gained the experience and understanding of the inherent risks and developed the judgment necessary to navigate the skies with confidence and skill.
Now, I would like to share some valuable lessons that I believe will serve as guiding principles for a young pilot’s journey. These pieces of advice have been shaped by my own experiences - both successes and failures.

Stay updated with industry advancements: Aviation is a rapidly evolving field, with new technologies, regulations, and best practices emerging constantly. Staying updated can help young pilots to always be vigilant and not complacent. As a pilot, it is imperative to always be aware of your situation and be actively looking for things that might go wrong—and think about how you would handle those things. Know that one day you will face some kind of a challenge, but also know that if you are a continuous learner, constantly striving for excellence, you will have prepared yourself for these challenges more thoroughly than you realize.

Consider specialized roles and pursue advanced certifications: In the dynamic field of aviation, there's more than one path to a fulfilling career. While becoming a pilot has traditionally been a popular choice, there are numerous specialized roles that offer equally rewarding opportunities. Explore fields such as aviation management, air traffic control, aerospace engineering, aviation maintenance, aviation law, aviation safety, and airline operations. Additionally, consider enhancing your qualifications by pursuing advanced certifications, specialized training programs, safety certifications, or advanced degrees in aviation-related fields. Broaden your horizons and embrace the diverse avenues available to excel in the aviation industry.

Embrace the team around you: Whatever you strive to achieve in life, it's important to recognize that success rarely comes from individual efforts alone. Embrace the ideas of others, listen attentively, and have the humility to admit mistakes and learn from them. It is through collaboration and acknowledging our shared humanity that we can overcome challenges and accomplish remarkable feats. As a pilot, I am acutely aware that my success in this profession would not have been possible without the support of my invaluable team, including flight attendants, air traffic controllers, maintenance technicians, and countless others who serve and contribute to the safe operation of aircraft.

Find a mentor within the industry: There are several avenues you can explore when seeking a mentor. To begin, leverage your existing network to identify potential mentors who may already be within your professional circle. Additionally, consider joining aviation associations and organizations that cater to your specific field, such as the International Society of Women Airline Pilots or Young Aviation Professionals. These groups provide opportunities to connect with experienced individuals who can offer guidance and support. Online platforms like LinkedIn can also be valuable in expanding your network and connecting with industry professionals. Lastly, don't hesitate to reach out to aviation schools and training centers, as they may have resources or connections to mentors willing to offer their expertise.

By utilizing these approaches, you can increase your chances of finding a mentor who can guide you on your career journey. 
Whether you are a recent graduate embarking on your first professional adventure or an experienced individual seeking a change, I encourage you to explore the promising opportunities within the aviation industry. It is a realm where passion meets purpose and where the desire to explore merges with the responsibility to uphold the highest standards of safety.
As you navigate your career path, remember to stay curious, be open to new challenges, and cultivate a strong network of like-minded professionals.
