Aviation Audio Clips / Three dead after small plane crash in Williamson County
« Last post by KB4TEZ on May 16, 2024, 06:18:42 AM »

(This was eerie, never got off a Pan or Mayday, just literally fell out of the sky.  RIP, thoughts and prayers with all)

FRANKLIN, Tenn. (WZTV) — Three people were killed in a small plane crash in rural Middle Tennessee, law enforcement confirms.  The Williamson County Sheriff's Office says a small aircraft crashed just after noon Wednesday near Bending Chestnut Road and Davis Hollow Road. According to the NTSB, it was a Beech V35 aircraft which crashed after experiencing an in-flight break up over a 1/2 mile radius.
"When responders arrived, they immediately started searching and sizing up the scene to see if there was a possibility of survivors. It was quickly evident that this would be a search and recovery operation, not a search and rescue operation," said Chief Deputy Mark Elrod.
Aviation Audio Clips / UPS2949 Flight Control Issues Returns to KOAK
« Last post by RonR on May 15, 2024, 10:33:00 AM »
On May 10, UPS2949, an MD-11 enroute from KOAK to KONT, had just departed runway 30 at KOAK when the flight crew called Norcal Departure and advised them that were stopping their climb at 4000 feet due to flight control issues.  They declared Mayday a few minutes later and asked to return to KOAK's runway 30.  They landed safely about 15 minutes later and taxied back to the apron on their own.

WASHINGTON, May 14 (Reuters) - Former U.S. President Donald Trump's private Boeing 757 clipped another corporate jet while taxiing at West Palm Beach International Airport in Florida on Sunday, a source familiar with the incident said on Tuesday.
The Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement that a privately owned 757 contacted a parked and unoccupied corporate jet at the south Florida airport. The FAA statement did not identify the plane as belonging to Trump.  The incident occurred in an area of the airport where the FAA does not direct aircraft, the agency said, adding that it is investigating.
The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Trump held a rally in Wildwood, New Jersey, on Saturday. The incident occurred after the plane landed at the West Palm Beach airport at about 1:20 a.m. on Sunday.
Trump's 757 is a staple of airport presidential campaign rallies and at one rally in Ohio in March a voice announced: "Trump Force One, you are cleared for landing." 
Trump purchased his $100 million Boeing 757 in 2010 and the heavily customized plane includes gold plated accents, two private guestrooms, three bathrooms, dining and conference areas and an extensive entertainment system. The plane was built in 1991.
Trump in January urged Boeing to resume building the 757, which it discontinued in 2004. "Boeing should bring back the 757, the most beautiful, best handling plane (from the pilots standpoint!) that Boeing ever made," he said on social media.

Listener Forum / Re: ZNY using 121.12 Out of Douglaston RCAG
« Last post by RonR on May 09, 2024, 10:39:45 PM »
Just noticed that ZNY is once again simulcasting 133.5 and 125.925 on 121.125... (same controller working both sectors)

At the same time ZNY is also using 128.675 today, simulcasting the controller from both 125.325 and 127.175 (controller working both sectors most of the day today).

Both of these frequencies are out of the Douglaston RCAG Happy listening!
Aviation Audio Clips / DAL1435 Nose Gear Problem Descending into KATL
« Last post by RonR on May 09, 2024, 09:50:15 PM »
DAL1435 was descending through about 12000 feet when the flight crew checked in with Atlanta approach and told them they had landing gear issue (gear disagree).  They slowed to 210 Kts so they could extend the landing gear and evaluate the situation.  They descended to 7000 feet and extended their landing gear.  The flight crew then declared an emergency stating the nose gear did not come down.  They asked for delaying vectors while they ran checklists and contacted their maintenance.  They then asked to perform a low approach over KATL's runway 27R so that the tower personnel could see whether or not the nose gear had come down.  The tower controller as well as an aircraft on the ground confirmed that the nose gear had come down.  They came around and landed safely a short time later on the same runway.  The taxied off the runway and stopped on a taxiway so that emergency crews could check out the aircraft.
Here's the DCA audio from 4/18...
This one wasn't even a multiple-controller multiple-frequency issue.  BTW did you get the DCA near-miss on 4/18 the day after the JFK one, didn't see that one on here (VAS Aviation did a youtube video on it)
