Reagan Airport: self-service landings?

Even more alarming than the video of Snoop Dogg and my furry friend Rico
is the audio of two American Airline pilots chatting with each other about the fact that there was apparently no one home in the air traffic control tower at Reagan Washington National Airport early Wednesday morning.

Here’s the audio from Liveatc.net that the Washington Post put on its website this afternoon.


 

And here’s more information about what officials say did – and did not happen.

Sort of scary….

    Ironic isn’t it that this happened at the airport named after the man who disbanded the air traffic controllers union. My guess is union rules would have required more than one controller to be on duty, ah but that would cost more.
