CAUTION:  STRONG LANGUAGE IN AUDIO.  Listener discretion is advised.

Incident aircraft appears to be N880Z, registered to Med Jet LLC.  According to Flightware, was enroute from KSNA.  Audio is from KSEE with silences trimmed.  Short version:  sounds like a normal IFR arrival, but aircraft requests to squawk VFR and cancel their IFR, then requests a change of runway to 27, given 27R by tower.  Shortly thereafter, screaming and swear words.  No further on the 0300-0330 archive, but I'm digging further.  I wanted to get this clip out now, since it's very apprent that SOMETHING happened.

Just getting reports of this through media channels.  Now scrubbing ATC archives for audio.  Opening a post here as a heads up, and in case someone is already ahead of me

The taxi routes are Standard Taxi Routes.  The idea is to save a lot of time on frequency giving the same taxi route over and over.  They are published in Jeppesen charts ($$ subscription required) and in NOTAMs.  I am unable to find the ones for KATL online at the moment since they are only published in the printed NOTAMs once.

Here's an article on the 45 pushback.  Delta claims it saves a few seconds on the pushback.  It depends on the gate geometry whether it is possible at all.  That the controller specifies it has to do with everyone being on the same page as to what the aircraft is going to do.
Listener Forum / Uncontrolled Airport Streams?
« Last post by hishighness on December 27, 2021, 08:49:35 PM »
Hey all, I'd like to listen to some uncontrolled airport chatter, just to see what it sounds like, how different pilots handle it, etc. Just wondering if anyone knows any ATC streams that have this.

Feed Setup Pictures / Ready to set up KLGD feed, but haven't heard anything back

So, I think I've gathered the hardware I need to set up a feed for KLGD.

I have a Raspberry Pi 4.
I got this filter:
And this antenna:

I have a Newelec NESDR Smart XTR (and another NESDR Smart - hoping to pick up a second channel with that).

I filled out the new feed form before getting stuff and got a generic idea of what was involved.

Now I have the stuff. I emailed back on the same thread but heard nothing.

I tried submitting a new "new feed form" and have heard nothing.

Can anyone guide me towards setting up the software on the Pi and testing decoding, gain levels, etc? I'm fairly familiar with Linux (Server admin by day) but am newer to the SDR side. (I've played with GNUradio some trying to decode airband but never got it to work, but did get FM to work. That was with home built antennas and a RTL TV dongle though.)

Anyone that can help? I've tried adding the email addresses on the new feed form to my spam whitelist, so I don't think responses are just disappearing. (So my assumption is Dave is just a busy guy, and my little airport doesn't rank all that high considering it's the busy holiday season. No hard feelings here, but I want to move forward and getting this set up and tuned a bit, and then moving it to a real tower structure.)

Eventually the whole setup should be about 4-5 mi from the airport on a 10 story building in a fairly flat valley.
Aviation Audio Clips / UA 794 12/24 b738 emergency & engine shut down (audio request)
« Last post by mmdc on December 24, 2021, 01:10:33 PM »
Sounds like UA794 (operated by 738) declared an emergency, shut down an engine & returned to EWR shortly after departure this AM.

Found emergency declared here: KEWR2-Dep-Lib-West-Dec-24-2021-1230Z
but can't find after switch to 120.15.

FR24 track in case timecodes help others find where this audio might live

Thanks to all for any help you can provide!
Pilot/Controller Forum / KATL tower and ramp questions
« Last post by KATL042 on December 24, 2021, 11:17:53 AM »
Hello, I have been listening to LiveATC for several months and have been able to search for all of the phraseology that I don't understand except for two.

1. Taxi north from RWY 10-28 on Pink and Black from SC

I don't see Pink or Black on the KATL FAA airport diagram or anything that looks related near taxiways SC or R , but I have not heard any of the pilots ask any questions about these routes either.  I have heard the tower give out several taxi instructions like these:
  • Taxi Pink hold short 27L
  • Pink 3 9R
  • Black 7 9R
  • Black 7 27L
Does anyone know what these mean?

2. Ramp gives instructions to push back straight or at a 45.  Is this to enter different ramp lanes?  I have not been able to find any details on KATL ramp procedures.

Thanks and Happy Holidays to all.

(Bloomberg) -- U.S. aviation regulators have proposed modifications to some Boeing Co. 777 jets to prevent engine debris from flying loose in a failure and endangering passengers as happened in some recent incidents.The Federal Aviation Administration on Wednesday filed a pair of proposed directives in the Federal Register that would require strengthening the engine inlets and adding shielding on Pratt & Whitney engines used on 777-200 and 777-300 aircraft.

The FAA in a third airworthiness directive proposed expanding required inspections for Pratt & Whitney engines. The company is a division of Raytheon Technologies Corp.

The front of an engine on a United Airlines 777-200 broke apart on Feb. 20 after departing Denver International Airport, spraying the plane with shrapnel. A fan blade that had a slowly expanding crack broke loose, triggering the damage, according to preliminary findings by the National Transportation Safety Board. The FAA had announced earlier this year that it was working with Boeing to develop fixes to the plane.

Only United operates 777s with Pratt & Whitney engines in the U.S. Most 777s have different engines that aren’t subject to the FAA proposals. 

In a statement, Pratt & Whitney said the inspections ordered by the the FAA are already underway and that the agency’s directive mirrors guidance the company has provided to customers.

“Pratt & Whitney is coordinating all actions with the FAA, Boeing, and airline operators, to ensure the continued airworthiness of the fleet,” the company said.

Boeing didn’t immediately comment.
