Weird.. why not just get them from the FAA? they're freely available for them. Airnav links directly to those charts and hasn't had a problem doing that for 25+ years..

Aviation News (General) / Taco Tuesday in Arcadia Florida
« Last post by KB4TEZ on February 22, 2024, 05:53:43 AM »
Have had the pleasure of experiencing this, would really like to find a LiveATC volunteer to get on the network !!!

If you make it to Florida between Sarasota and Fort Myers you need to stop at X06 Arcadia airport for Taco Tuesday. They take off $0.10/gal on already low priced avgas. On a good day you'll get around 100 airplanes from all over Florida who fly in for tacos and cheap fuel.
"Arcadia is awesome. They have a guy that helps direct traffic on comms and parking. Because it does get hectic on taco Tuesdays!"

New site set up by former members of ADB-S. They are using the FAA chart tiles. Go to to check it out. Looks identical
to ADB-S site. Don't know if the FAA chart tiles are updated or they are just using the last ones provided by Chart Bundle.

Added Note: The site does have an issue with the FAA Map tiles not loading properly. If you zoom too far out on the IFR map, for example,
you lose the map tiles; or if you move the map, the tiles do not follow along. Site operators are aware of issue and
working on it. It is working better as of this morning, 2/23.

has anyone used this before? does it work? and @jetscan1, email me, and lets continue there.

(Hadn't found the handoff from Canada to US ATC, but caught them coming in)

American officials are investigating after a threat was made against an Air Canada flight from Halifax to Newark, New Jersey, on Monday.

In a statement, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said Newark Airport Police received a report around 12 p.m. Monday about a “threat made towards Air Canada flight 8657.”

It said the plane landed at the Newark Liberty International Airport without incident, and all passengers were deplaned safely with no reported injuries.

It said the Port Authority Police Department and its canine unit fully cleared the aircraft and normal operations resumed.

The port authority declined to comment further. “There is no additional information at this time. The incident is under investigation,” it said.  Air Canada could not immediately be reached for comment Tuesday morning.

In a statement, the Transportation Safety Board of Canada said it was aware of the incident.

“From the information provided to the TSB it does not meet the definition of a reportable incident in accordance with the Transportation Safety Board Regulations,” it said. “This is a security issue that would be investigated by police.”

A spokesperson for the Halifax Stanfield International Airport said the airport did not receive any threats about the flight and it has not been contacted by any Newark police authorities regarding this matter.

Something like this ?

Maybe change the case to make it look more like an iphone or walkman (or whatever you call them these days). Use regular headphones so it looks like you are listening to music. One problem with a passsive radio like this that covers the whole airband is that you are going to hear all the ACARS chirps too, which might drive you crazy after awhile. If you are really keen connect it to the aircraft wi-fi and run a mobile LiveATC feed so we can all listen in.   
Aviation Audio Clips / Single Engine Piper Makes Emergency Landing on Long Island Highway
« Last post by RonR on February 20, 2024, 02:07:54 PM »
A single engine Piper had just performed a Touch and Go at Farmingdale's Republic Airport when the pilot reported an engine failure and said they were going to "put it down on the highway".  The aircraft landed on the eastbound side of Southern State Parkway at around exit 33 near Lindenhurst, NY at around 11:40AM.  The right wing appeared to have struck a light pole.  Another aircraft reported that the occupants appeared to have gotten out of the Piper on their own. 
Boston-bound flight from San Francisco forced to divert to Denver after plane's wing came apart

Looking for any audio now.

A passenger of a Boston-bound commercial flight made an unusual sighting when he looked out of the window and saw a wing of the plane falling apart midair.  Passenger Kevin Clarke said he boarded United Flight 354, a Boeing 757-200 that was departing out of San Francisco and took off on schedule but was told by the pilot that the plane would be forced to divert to Denver, Boston 25 News reported. Then, he saw the problem with his very own eyes. The slat of the plane's right wing was "coming apart" and missing noticeable chunks.

"I’m like bird strike? That’s not good," Clarke told the outlet. "We take off, I heard this loud buzzing noise, and then it faded away so I didn’t think much of it and all of a sudden the pilot is coming back, so I threw my window open, peeked out the window and the whole leading edge of the wing was destroyed."

He was also able to get his cell phone out and record the harrowing moment. "Just about to land in Denver with the wing coming apart on the plane," Clarke narrates in the cell phone video. "Came apart when we took off in San Francisco, and we’re just about on the ground. Can’t wait for this flight to be over."  Upon making the emergency landing in Denver, Clarke and the other 164 passengers of the United flight boarded a new plane.

Clarke ultimately landed at his final destination of Logan Airport about three hours later than scheduled, telling Boston 25 News he was just glad to be alive.

"First there was some panic, but the pilot had come back, looked at it, took some pictures of it, talked to the guys on the ground, said yup, proceed to Denver, shouldn’t be a problem," said Clarke.
