Well it's fox news, so probably not much to it.

I remember something about a UND grad not being accepted for training. It escalated from there. On the bright side, when you are in a lengthy hold you can discuss b-ball stats with the controller.

Sort of old news, but I guess it took this long to get to trial and get in the news again. I did not watch all of the video, but the story is essentially true.

After the initial ruckus over this several years, the Air Traffic Org. made some corrections. The executive presiding over this was encouraged to retire, and he did.

Ah yes. The good old news fan boys that must chime in because they are experts on what is unbiased news.

As I have asked many times over, please enlighten us with your choice of a news source that is not biased so we that we may all become as enlightened as you are.

We must all drink from the same designated (anointed) news source, right?
