San Francisco's Runway 28 Left reopened today, a week ahead of schedule.

The first landing occurred at 10:46 am local time. The runway had been closed for the reconfiguration of taxiways Delta and Tango, which aircraft use to exit the runway.

ATC audio includes the first landing, an Alaska Flight 1132 checking in with the tower controller.

Looks like SWA4069 descended to as low as 1700 feet triggering the "low-altitude alert"...

This site is located in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan at the Saskatchewan Aviation Museum & Learning Centre.




The system uses two Raspberry Pi 4 computers.  One runs the airband VHF for the LiveATC feed, and the other supplies ADSB information to the main carriers like FlightRadar24, ADSBExchange, etc.  The metal strip running down the centre of the antenna board is for cooling, which seems to provide excellent passive cooling.

A Southwest Airlines passenger jet flew so low over Yukon early Wednesday morning that it triggered an altitude alert at Oklahoma City's Will Rogers World Airport and had locals asking about it on social media.

Just after midnight Wednesday, the flight from Las Vegas had been cleared to land on a visual approach from the northwest. According to publicly available transponder data, the Boeing 737-800 appeared to descend to about 500 feet as it passed over Yukon High School.

"Southwest 4069, low altitude alert. You good out there?" the air traffic controller asked just after midnight Wednesday, according to an audio archive of transmissions provided by LiveATC.net.  The aircraft quickly regained altitude and circled for a safe landing at another runway. When reached Thursday, ATC personnel at the airport confirmed the alert and missed approach but said there were no issues with the aircraft.

The low approach, along with the late hour, sparked discussion and speculation on the Yukon Happenings Facebook group.

We had a storm roll through and my cable modem, and the ethernet port on my feeder both got fried during the storm, which is why it was down for a couple days.  Picked up the new modem yesterday to find out the feeder was taken out as well, and got that replaced today.  Feed is back operating normally at this time.
