Bonsoir, j’ai coupé le feed suite à l’incident de l’AF11. Personne ne p’a demandé mon avis sur la diffusion de la discussion entre les pilotes et je trouve cela pas normal. Par ailleurs, j’ai discuté avec des pilotes et des contrôleurs et ils étaient gênés de la situation. Je ne pense pas revenir.

Ils ont cité ceci-dit,en tout cas le reportage que j'ai vu.

(thanks AVH)
Here's the audio

A Spirit Airlines Airbus A319-100, registration N512NK performing flight NK-1150 from Fort Myers,FL to Detroit,MI (USA), was on final approach to Detroit's runway 03R when the crew initiated a go around telling ATC they had a gear indication. The aircraft climbed to 4000 feet and entered a hold while working the checklists. The crew subsequently requested a low approach to runway 04R to have their nose landing gear inspected from the ground. Following the low approach tower reported the nose gear looked "fine". The aircraft climbed again to 4000 feet and positioned for a full stop landing on runway 04L. On final approach the passengers were instructed to take their brace positions, the aircraft touched down on the center line of runway 04L and rolled out safely.

US Media claim the aircraft landed half on Asphalt and half on grass.

The airline reported the crew suspected a mechanical problem but completed a safe landing. The passengers disembarked normally.

The occurrence aircraft returned to service about 41 hours after landing.

Ah yikes, I'd love to try when I get back from STL if you're willing, but if you're closer to the airport and getting poor signal I might have to wait a bit lol

A Cessna 206, Texas game warden, smoke and zero visibility in cockpit. Ditched into Lady Bird Lake.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department said a game warden pilot was involved in a plane crash Thursday at Lady Bird Lake in Austin.
“We are gathering more information about the status of the pilot and the airplane,” the state agency said.
The Austin Travis County EMS and Austin Fire Department responded to the crash shortly after 2 p.m. Thursday just west of the I-35 bridge.
Officials said the “small plane” was only occupied by the pilot when it crashed into the lake. No others in the lake were injured during the crash.
Officials described the pilot as “experienced.” According to investigators, the game warden was conducting a test flight after some routine maintenance on the 2009 Cessna T206 plane when the aircraft started experiencing problems.
The pilot was transported to a nearby hospital with “potentially serious injuries.”

The stream is going but not receiving KBNA Nashville Ground. Tower asks flight to switch to ground .9 and that’s it on both the Ground and Tower/Ground Streams.
Aviation Accidents/Incidents / Pilot reports seeing jet pack near LAX again
« Last post by KB4TEZ on June 24, 2022, 01:24:52 PM »
(scanning around for any of the audio)

(KTLA) — The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating after a commercial airline pilot reported seeing a jet pack near the Los Angeles International Airport.

The sighting happened around 2:45 p.m. Thursday, about 15 miles east of the airport.

It’s not the first time the FAA has been alerted about possible jet pack sightings near LAX. Several sightings have been reported since October 2020, and there have been continued reported sightings every few months.
The FAA has worked with the FBI to investigate each jet pack sighting, and so far none — including Thursday’s reported sighting — have been verified. In fact, back in November 2021, the Los Angeles Police Department released video of some strange-looking balloons that they theorized could be responsible for the jet pack reports.

The video, captured sometime in November 2020, shows a skeleton-like balloon, possibly an inflatable Jack Skellington character from the “Nightmare Before Christmas” film.

It remains unclear at this time what the reported jet pack sightings actually are, but some experts have said it’s unlikely to be a person due to the high altitude of the sightings. Another theory that has been floated, other than balloons, is that it’s a high-powered drone with a mannequin attached.
