Do you by any chance know the geographical names the pilot of UAL 467 mentioned? He says the fire is east of... and in the northern side of...
Listener Forum / CYTZ Tower feed issue
« Last post by terryreynolds on September 03, 2021, 12:05:17 AM »
Hi, I've been a listener for a while. I just had an issue where the CYTZ tower seems to have increased but the feed cannot be loaded. I have tried html files and not working.
Any suggestion? Thanks!

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Several “large and extremely dangerous” tornadoes were spotted throughout the Philadelphia region Wednesday, the NWS says. The damage left behind from Ida in New Jersey has prompted Gov. Phil Murphy to declare a state of emergency.

Several tornado warnings have been issued throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware on Wednesday as the remnants of Hurricane Ida pound the region.

(I'll let you pick and choose from Teterboro/Philadelphia listen ins, but the chatter between ATC\Pilots was very active)

Those feeds were down during that time. We are still trying to work with the host to understand why the equipment keeps falling off the network. If you need those archives try contacting the FAA with a FoIA request and they can help you out.
Listener Forum / Several KPDX Feeds and archives down

I'm trying to pull the archives from KPDX ( Approach 118.1 but it looks like several of the KPDX feeds are currently down and the archives missing (118.1 for 2021-08-30_00:00).  Any chance these archives exist somewhere as well as getting the live feeds fixed?
Aviation Accidents/Incidents / A321 LINED UP WITH RUNWAY EDGE LIGHTS - Las Vegas
« Last post by KB4TEZ on September 01, 2021, 09:03:25 AM »

An American Airlines A321 damaged 15 runway edge lights, when its crew lined up wrongly for take-off. There was no damage to the aircraft.

The incident happened on Saturday, the 28th of August. Flight AA-2480 would fly from Las Vegas McCarran (KLAS) in Nevada, to Charlotte Douglas International (KCLT), in North Carolina, USA. The tower cleared the crew to line up on runway 08L, for departure. However, instead of the centreline, the A321 crew lined up with the lights on the right edge of the runway. Local time during the take-off roll was 23:30. Weather doesn’t appear to have been a factor. The American Airlines aircraft accelerated for take-off at this position. As it did, the A321 hit a total of 15 runway edge lights, before becoming airborne. The flight continued normally to its destination, arriving in Charlotte 3 hours and 45 minutes later.

It is worth pointing out that runway 08L in McCarran has a displaced threshold. This crew got to the runway using taxiway B, reaching holding point F. This point is as far back from the threshold as possible. What this means is that when they lined up for take-off, the A321 crew were a bit over 610 metres (2,000 feet) away from the first runway edge lights they hit.  Despite its run-in with the runway edge lights in Las Vegas, American did not withdraw this A321 for maintenance. The aircraft departed for the following flight (Charlotte to San Diego) with only a minimal delay. It remained on the ground in Charlotte for less than three hours.
Listener Forum / Tracon / ATC High level Maps / etc
« Last post by flame on September 01, 2021, 08:26:41 AM »
A suggestion for the mods.

It appears to that all the Upper Airways maps etc are all lumped int the one folder, making searching quite difficult

Could separate folders within the main folder be set up for each ( Continent )  ... Europe / Nth America / Asia / Middle East

Would it possible to have a map section showing the ATC Centre that controls a specific sector. EG If I want to listed to High level traffic in the New England area, is there was a specific button to press that would bring up the Tracon centre that controls that area would be really usefull.  The same applies to High Level areas in Europe

Just a few suggestions folks

Bird attack is one of the factors that causes many problems for the aviation organization and sometimes causes planes to crash. The number of birds is increasing. There are many contributing factors, including the greater fertility of birds
He noted the increase in air traffic by slower, turbofan-equipped aircraft.
