Aviation Audio Clips / Blue Angel #8 Emergency Landing at KMSN
« Last post by MSN ATC on November 30, 2021, 07:22:35 PM »
The attached audio is from KMSN this (Nov. 30, 2021) morning as F/A-18 Blue Angel #8 made an emergency landing at Dane County Regional Airport at Madison, Wisconsin. I happened to be listening at the time so I pulled the ATC recording to make the clip. Interesting as the pilot describes a hydraulic issue and how they need to use the arrestor gear on the approach end of runway 36 for their landing.

Recording is edited for brevity.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving !!!

Looking for some help on this one, as some of you are much more adept at this than I,  normal Jetblue out of Charolette to KFLL on Monday Nov 22, yet it shows PBI?
noticing the track, they circled for quite a while north of KPBI before landing at KFLL.  Trying to decipher this one,
any takers on this?
was just curious.

Aviation Audio Clips / Thanksgiving Fun with the Roanoke ATIS

I flew in and out of Roanoke yesterday (Thanksgiving day), and our fantastic controllers here were having some fun with the ATIS.  I didn't have time to grab the whole day, but I attached a 30-second clip of samples over a few hours.  Enjoy!

"Happy Thanksgiving" from San Fransisco Operations, FAA Tower and Ramp Towers.

A mother who gave birth to her first child on an airplane was reunited just days before Thanksgiving with the first responders who helped her safely deliver the baby.

Liliana Castañeda and her husband, Edgar Acevedo, were on a Delta Air Lines flight heading home to North Carolina from Mexico on Nov. 14 when Castañeda started having contractions. Her water broke an hour into the flight.A nurse on board helped Castañeda for more than three hours until the plane landed at the Atlanta International Airport."He was like 'Yeah the baby girl is coming, it's on its way.' And he was like 'Don't try to push, because if you push more the baby will come out.' So I held those contractions for like three hours and 30 minutes on the way here,” Castañeda said in a video posted on social media on Wednesday by the Atlanta Fire Rescue Department, which responded to a 911 call from Delta alerting emergency authorities that Castañeda was in labor.

First responders rushed to the airport and waited for the plane to arrive at the gate.

"The airplane was coming in exceedingly fast, faster than normal, so we knew there was an emergency, we knew people were nervous,” said Juanita Nash, one of the people who greeted the plane.

As soon as Nash and other first responders were able to get inside the aircraft, they found Castañeda in the back of the plane, lying on the floor. After assessing the situation, emergency personnel decided to deliver the baby right there.

"I just pushed once and the baby girl came out crying," Castañeda said.

Baby Analia Acevedo Castañeda was born aboard Delta flight 1804, according to the Atlanta Fire Rescue Department.  Once she did deliver, one of the flight attendants got on the microphone and she was able to say, 'Hey we have a baby girl,'" Nash said. "It was a special occasion."

Castañeda was expecting her baby to arrive on Dec. 23, "but she came out early," the mother told WRAL, NBC's affiliate in Raleigh, North Carolina.

"I was nervous at the same time and worried for her and the baby," Acevedo, Analia's father, told WRAL.

On Tuesday, the new parents met with Nash and other first responders who witnessed Analia's birth in Atlanta before the new family was able to return home to North Carolina for the holidays.

"Thank you to all the people that were in the airplane, like the EMS, the fire department, everybody who helped us," Castañeda added.

KMMU Ground has a funny remark about Tower controller

Amen, and so glad the ending was a happy one !!!

A father and his 13-year-old daughter who managed to survive a plane crash in the woods near Wilkes-Barre Scranton International Airport in Pennsylvania found themselves in a perilous situation as the temperature outside was dropping into the upper 30s.

The pair, who were not identified, took off from the airport on Sunday (November 14) evening in a two-seat, single-engine Cessna 150. The plane disappeared from radar shortly after takeoff, and officials began searching the heavily wooded area.

The United States Air Force Rescue Coordination Center provided assistance as rescue teams and roughly 30 other volunteers began a grid search of the woods, starting from the plane's last known location. The search was slow because it was dark and cold, and there was snow on the ground.

Once rescuers identified the pilot, they called his wife, who provided them with his cell phone number. They managed to ping the man's phone and discovered that his daughter had an iPad, which was transmitting a signal as well. Using that signal, they were able to locate the pair after nearly five hours.

When rescuers arrived, they found the two huddled together in a pre-hypothermic state. They were taken to the hospital with minor injuries and are expected to make a full recovery.

"The daughter saves both of them by using her iPad, and dad was cuddling the daughter to give her warmth because they were both exposed to the elements," Pennsylvania Police Sgt. John Richards said.

Officials said that it was a miracle they were able to find the two before they succumbed to the elements.

"From what I hear and see, you don't really hear of survivors, especially in the area that they crashed. It's very heavily wooded," Chief James Serafin with the Bear Creek Volunteer Hose Company told CNN. "They had to go through trees and everything else. It definitely was a miracle."

The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the crash.
