Listener Forum / KAPA - Hearing Tower Only
« Last post by theguy0000 on Today at 01:22:16 AM »
Not sure what the procedure is to report this, but all night on KAPA, I've been hearing tower only, no readback or anything at all from pilots (aside from one helicopter requesting departure). Curious if there's a problem with this feed. I mean things like landing clearances and taxi instructions that definitely require readback aren't being read back.

I'm also getting a lot of callsigns referring to KDEN flights - not sure if this is normal for Centennial Tower to handle these but I certainly don't hear them during the day.

Mostly just curiosity here - thanks in advance.

Aviation Audio Clips / KLYH Liberty 124 Engine Failure on takeoff
« Last post by Rick108 on October 18, 2018, 12:56:13 PM »
Lynchburg Airport is heavily used by nearby Liberty University for their training programs, and their aircraft use the callsign "Liberty xxx".  In this clip, Liberty 124 has an engine problem shortly after takeoff and ends up landing in the grass back on the field.  My compliments to the pilot and instructor for the successful outcome!

I did my instrument training at KLYH, so this one hits close to home!

First lady Melania Trump's plane was forced to return to Joint Base Andrews Wednesday after a "mechanical issue" that led to smoke in the cabin.

According to the press pool traveling with Trump, about 10 minutes after the plane took off, reporters could see a thin haze of smoke and the smell of something burning. Reporters were brought wet towels and told to hold them over their faces if the smell became too strong.

The plane, a Boeing C-32A, landed safely. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar also was on the plane, a pool report said.

The White House did not immediately provide an official explanation of what happened. Stephanie Grisham, Trump's communications director, told CNN the incident was a "minor mechanical issue. Everything is fine and everyone is safe."

Trump was headed to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, where she was scheduled to make remarks about neonatal abstinence syndrome. She was originally scheduled to return to Washington Wednesday afternoon.

The trip remains on for later Wednesday and the first lady will take a different plane, Grisham said.

Aviation Accidents/Incidents / Air India Plane Continues Flying After Hitting a Wall

unreal

An Air India plane smashed into a wall on October 12 during take-off and then continued to fly.

Air India Boeing 737 had 130 passengers and six crew members on board when it hit an airport perimeter wall right after takeoff at the Tricky Airport in Tamil Nadu. Despite hitting the wall, the aircraft continued to fly for another four hours across the Indian Ocean and halfway to Dubai.

After two hours in the air, the plane was ordered to return to Mumbai, India, by ground control, for obvious safety reasons.

I also was having issues with several feeds not having audio or would not load at all w/flash.
All browsers were having the same issue .

I had to download the feed and then place it into the  VLC Media player for  them to work

Aviation Audio Clips / Re: 16 OCT: SWA 900 Missed Approach at KBUR?

Wow thank you so much! It’s not a particularly short runway is it? Looks like it’s 6886ft.

It's over a mile long, so that isn't bad for a B737. SNA has runway 20L at 5701ft.

BL.

Aviation Audio Clips / 16 OCT: SWA 900 Missed Approach at KBUR?
« Last post by rpawlik on October 16, 2018, 07:18:43 PM »
I was on SWA flight 900 from DEN to BUR today (16 OCT) and we had a missed approach to RWY 15 around 9:30am local time. We were about 10 ft from touchdown so there had to have been a close call with other traffic on or near the runway. I've never been on a flight that had a missed approached and it was intense. I'd be interested to hear the radio chatter if someone knows where I can find it. Or if anyone heard the incident, I would like to know what happened!

Thanks for your help!
