Hi there,

Here's my guess shown in a video. If the Frontier was pushing back off Gate 25 and the Southwest was taxiing on C.... this is the only way their wings could collide.

Frontier did read back "after Southwest"... maybe he didn't tell the tug so? Maybe the pilot told the tug to push after the Southwest but the tug didn't do so?

I think that the feed was just not up. I initially got to the feed about 1hr after the accident and there was no feed for the previous 6 or so hours. Presume that the feed was just down. Would need Squak7700 to confirm.
Relevant transmissions would be a few minutes before the 2200 feed starts.
Also not sure what freq's the feed covers. I don't believe Essendon departures are on the feed anyway.
It would appear that the relevant parts of the feed archive have been taken down.

Shortly after 9am local time this mronig (Tues 21/2/17), a private charter KingAir-200 (VH-ZCR) crashed after takeoff leaving Essendon Airport on runway 17.

Appears to have suffered an engine failure on takeoff and failed to maintain any altitude.
Crashed into the roof of a new section of a large shopping centre.
4 USA residents who were passengers on a golfing trip plus the pilot were killed. No injuries reported on the ground.

Smoke plume was visible from around 20km's away.

Google Maps link to the point of impact,144.9047519,605m/data=!3m1!1e3

Another 30 metres and it would have impacted across an 8 lane freeway at the end of the morning peak.
Haven't located relevant info on the feed as yet (still at work).

I was wondering if it is possible to contribute to Live ATC with a Raspberry Pi and DVT/RTL stick.

I am currently feeding data to Flightaware and Flightradar24

And we're back online!

Current frequency list updated.

We have the ability to put a couple more feeds up from this location...working on the optimal sets of frequencies. Suggestions welcome.

Recorded in 2001, an Air Nippon 737 (callsign "ANK training 3") conducting pilot training near Avalon Airport in Victoria, Australia, misses a scheduled ops normal call with Melbourne Centre and then becomes uncontactable for approximately 12 minutes.

Thanks for this very interest audio recording.

At least the Training 3 pilot spoke better English than some Air China 777 pilots flying into and out of US airports?

Thanks for the great job and time, Chris :wink:

I'm working a video about this event but I'm not sure where exactly they collided. I've been diving through the PHX layout chart and can't understand how Frontier pushing back on Gate 25 can collide the Southwest taxiing 'south route' (Guess this is SIERRA taxiway to transition from north to south ramps?) I'm missing or misunderstanding something for sure.

Appreciate the help!  :-)

EDIT: I was looking at Gate A25 and not Gate 25 on Terminal 3. Now I see the possible pushback route of the Frontier and Southwest coming over just on taxiway C... how couldn't they see each other? (I mean tug and SWA pilots) :oops: :oops:
