"Fetch me my brown trousers" is a joke way older than the Deadpool movies.

The latest fashion trend in America is "going Commando."

More details and excerpts from the self-serving French incident report here: http://avherald.com/h?article=4​da9fc9a​&opt=0

Colossal controller error, but fortunately both the aircraft were on the ball and visibility was good enough for them to see each other.   The scapegoating of the United crew for their radio call is pure French bullshiat.

My friend has been an air traffic controller for 20 years. YOU GUYS HAVE NO IDEA! Ignorance is bliss. You want to hear a ATC yelling "execute" about as much as you want to see a bomb tech running past you. "The FAA requires that applicants be 30 years old or younger when they apply to the job, and controllers must retire at age 56"  They are also overworked.

Probably not the "latest" fashion trend since it happened a year ago.

weird. I worked on some voice recognition ai system 20 years ago and part of my research was the successful application of these systems in air traffic control. There's a limited vocabulary in air traffic control that you have to understand and so it's easy to determine conflicts in orders.

I'm so glad that I have a job where a major screwup just means that I have to work a weekend or two to fix it.  Nobody dies.

There are people who actually roleplay ATC in Microsoft Flight Simulator. That's a little too realistic for me, I stick with the simulated in-game ATC. But if you've got live traffic simulated in-game the ATC for busy airports like Atlanta, JFK, Heathrow, de Gaulle etc is going at a constant clip.

Conversely, I work in a job where I can minor fark up a LOT and it's not a big deal at all, but a major fark up and somebody does die.

"The controller did not have a direct line of sight to the 09 runways because the equipment that faces in their direction appeared to be broken and she was working at a different screen, according to the report."

I think I see where the problem is.

That

1) You're a misogynist asshole, no better than the Saudi fundamentalists made fun of in another thread
2) Her work area is dangerous and she (and any other controller) should have line of sight to the entire airport.

On a plane some years back.  Coming in for a landing.  About 20 feet of the ground, suddenly plane goes full power and climbs sharply. My first thought is "plane on runway."
We get up in the air, and the pilot comes on the intercom sounding slightly stressed. "Hey folks...sorry about that.  We had to go around again. No problems, just the...uh...runway wasn't...uh...as empty as we like it to be.

Came here to say that I have a different definition of "slip of the tongue".

Seriously deep bullshiat. They did say "understood" - not to ask for confirmation but to acknowledge. They then spelled out their clearance with "Sidestep for 9 right." THEY READ BACK 9 RIGHT AND THE CONTROLLER DID NOT CORRECT THE CALL THEN.

Which means this wasn't a slip of the tounge. The controller cleared them to 9R, after having cleared an AF 787 onto 9R and then clearing an EJ A320 to depart 9R. The UA 787 crew was going around when the controller realized the mistake.

In the controller's defense, he was in a bad physical position in the tower due to equipment failure and had no visiblity of the thresholds of 9L/9R.

In the good news, the UA 787 was aware this was janky and watching 09R carefully, the EJ A320 was aware this was janky and was watching the sky, and when then followed their clearance to depart, they notified the controller of the incoming UA 787 and the 787 saw them pull out and went around.

Thank you for doing that job.  My mom was on hospice last fall and the hospice people - from the doctor to the nurses to the support staff - helped me immeasurably.  Can't even imagine how much more awful it would have been without the support.

You are more than welcome!

My condolences.

I'm proud to be bringing 30 years of experience to this job and helping both the families and the patients during their difficult times.

I will say that the work has been far more satisfying and gratifying than any of the work I've done in hospitals in years and that's after just a couple of months since I transferred.

Thank you.

It's actually very gratifying work. But then again, death usually doesn't bother me very much.
