cjo: The cockpit? What is it?

It's a little room in the front of the plane, where the pilots sit, but that's not important right now.

CSB: IFR training flight, we are picking up lots of ice in a 172 and running out of throttle - Seattle Center sez no descent to warmer altitude; instructor sez "oh yeah? watch us".

flucto: Theaetetus: Not unreasonable, and why didn't the pilot speak up when the controller asked him for more info?

Because he called United 12, not Acey 5912. If he would have said "aircraft calling the emergency I didn't copy your flight number, please say again and say souls on board", as he should have farking well done, he probably would have had an answer.

Is that reasonable, though? I mean, number of souls? Like the pilot's supposed to get off the controls and go inspect the cabin in case of any redheads?

I guess Juan Williams should worry less about the Muslim passengers and more about the pilot/control tower shenanigans.

If only someone could invent some kind of mechanism allowing all parties involved in a communication to authenticate themselves, thus making it impossible to hoax air traffic controllers.
