Aircraft force landed on airport property shortly after takeoff.

Event Type: ACCIDENT
Highest Injury: MINOR
Flight Phase: TAKEOFF (TOF)

One person is recovering from injuries they suffered in an ultralight plane crash in Ventura County. The accident happened early Thursday night at Camarillo Airport. Ventura County firefighters say the pilot was able to walk away from the craft’s wreckage, and was treated at the scene for minor injuries.
There’s no word on exactly what happened, but the craft which came down on airport property was heavily damaged.

Right now, that may be a problem, as the Atlas and Calistoga fires pretty much has the entire airport under a TFR. Right now, no containment, at least 10 people dead, multiple homes destroyed, 2 hotels and a couple of restaurants completely destroyed.

Hopefully the provider of the feed is safe, along with the equipment.

Not having seen a reply or a post on the outage feed, I hope this information is helpful.  The feed runs smoothly for a while, then replays the last few seconds of audio, and moves to unavailable.  After a period of a few minutes, it returns to available again.  This pattern persists multiple times each day.

I always appreciate your frequent posts, Geoff.  Thanks for all your hard work!

I'm gonna speculate that janolof is not a native English speaker, and maybe some social diplomacy was just lost in translation?  Overall, I'm generally very impressed by the civility of conversation in this forum, compared to most of what's out there on the web these days.

I hope it won't be considered too churlish of me if I say it would have been nice to have had some acknowledgement of the effort I had made to find this item  in the archives.

Thanks for putting this together buddy! <3  Appreciate the work you do (so often!)

Hi Ron,
To make a long story short, yes is going to be the answer. At one time it was available in the USA, maybe it is again? It stood up to Hurricane Irma and recently my fiberglass
telescopic mast broke and it came crashing down to the ground, not a scratch on it. Yeah I know, that mast is not designed for that kind of antenna   :-D
P.S. I fixed it all yesterday.

like a scanner would be hard.

but you can for example configure VLC player to open multiple players.
it's in the preferences "use only one instance from the file manager" or you can just open the program multiple times.
but yeah you hear everything at once.

beginners guide not to my knowledge but just ask in this thread if you have specific questions.
i guess you should start listening to feeds that have good reception and are not too crowded.
understanding ground frequencies only really works if you look at airport charts. often approach procedures are also good to look at.

let's for example take KJFK tower feed has good reception and you can even select listening to one of the frequencies if they operate two at one time.
landing 13L right now so you check under
for procedures to 13L. now i presume you are watching too on flightaware or flightradar24?
then you see soon they are using the VOR13L procedure.

this gives you some guidance to what is happening. there are also some youtube channels like vasaviation and the like who make transcripts that are nice if you have a hard time understanding what is being said.

also the archives are nice because you can rewind. rewinding during a livestream would be a great feature ;P
