Aviation Audio Clips / Air Force One Daytona 500 Flyover
« Last post by Rick108 on Today at 01:05:37 PM »
I cut together a few bits from the AF1 flyover last Sunday, in case anyone else is interested.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Video recorded by a witness shows a plane skidding on its belly down a runway as bright orange flames trail behind it at Daytona Beach International Airport on Thursday.
Airport officials said a small, non-commercial plane made the hard landing around 12:25 p.m., forcing the closure of multiple runways.

A user known as Yelvington Jet Aviation provided footage that shows the massive flames and thick black smoke coating the runway. The Cessna Citation Mustang appeared to still be on fire by the time it came to a complete stop.

No one was injured, including the two people who were on board, but runways were shut down while crews worked to remove the plane and inspect the area.

Video shows firefighters rushing to the plane and extinguishing the source of the plumes of smoke. The plane stopped smoking about a minute after first responders arrived on the scene.

Airport officials are asking anyone traveling through the airport Thursday to check with their individual airlines for updates on flights. Around 3:30 p.m., American Airlines canceled all of its flights at the airport due to the hard landing and bad weather.

The secondary runway 16/34 was reopened at about 5:15 p.m.

Just listen for a couple of hours, you'll start to understand what is going on if you try.

You should probably also read this:

Try following a plane departing LAX.
You make sure you know its callsign and you can see it on FR24 or planefinder or

You'll hear it being cleared for takeoff, the plane is switched from tower to departure frequency.
This frequency will likely not be announced as it is given to the plane beforehand.

Frequency changes after that will be given to the airplane, so you can hear the new frequency.
You follow that frequency (requires some searching on liveatc).

liveatc doesn't cover all frequencies everywhere, so this can be quite difficult.

As a starting exercise, maybe try the following:

A plane taxiing at JFK taxies out on ground frequency (121.9), is switched to JFK tower (123.9 or 119.1), is then cleared for takeoff.
After takeoff it's switched to departure (135.9 during the day, 125.7 when it's less busy).
The next frequency will depend on where the plane is going and the time of day.
But you should be able to hear that frequency and maybe find it on liveatc.

If you are tasked with researching this stuff, you should also understand altitude changes, heading changes and direct to. can be helpful in looking for intersections.

Understanding departures, arrivals and approach procedures doesn't hurt either, read some plates here:

Cross bleed is the bleed air transfer between engines.

Normally bleed air from the APU is used to start the engines.
For a cross bleed start the engine providing the bleed air needs to be set to a high power level which creates jet blast behind the aircraft.

Hi --

Apologies for such a basic question, but I'm wondering if anyone has a beginner's guide to finding and listening to ATC feeds. I work as a researcher and oftentimes I'm asked to find ATC audio for flights where something dramatic has happened -- Delta 89 dumping fuel over LA, for example, or planes making emergency landings for other reasons.

There are so many LAX feeds I don't know where to start, I don't quite understand how or when a plane would change frequencies, and so on.

Wondering if anyone has ever come up with a basic "this is how this works" kind of guide, or a guide for finding specific audio you're looking for. I would love to see it, if so.

1. Many people here listen a lot more than I do but, I find that VAS aviation is a good start that and the audio clips section of this site.
Following aviation listeners on twitter helps as well.

What is it and why do they need special permission? I've heard a lot of this on LAX ground lately.

That’s from 2019. This incident was from over the weekend, the plane heading to Miami

Sorry to see Landvetter ESGG is gone. Sweden's second largest airport. Any chance we can see Landvetter again?
