FAA investigating after plane emergency ignored

I am stunned to read this. I did not listen to the audio yet, but just finished reading the story. I am shocked how this can happen.

I want to say you all did a great job. Made me want to be at Sun & Fun even more. Looking forward to seeing you all in a few months at the sleepy airport of Oshkosh.

Re: Ice Pilots NWT coming to The Weather Channel

I am not sure why they are editing it down to 30 min. It really looses some of the flow between episodes. I too really enjoy the 1 hour episodes but how TWC has re-edited them is not really working for me. Plus I lost an episode due to "breaking weather coverage"

Re: Best player for Podcasts? Old Ipod caught fire...

I too would recommend an iPod Touch. So much more then just an MP3 player. But really if that is all you are after, check out the iPod Nano I still have my 3rd gen one of those in my car just for Podcasts. Bring it in ever few days to sync and life is good :)

Re: The JET Room KMSN

Was there a few weeks ago, only open for breakfast and lunch (both are great) & it is hopping all the time they are open. Very friendly staff, great food, wonderful view of the airport. Well worth the stop if you are in the Madison area.

Pilot runs out of fuel ends up in ditch
