ATC Recordings Of 9/11 Events

Sat Jan 31, 2004 11:37 am

Kinda doing a follow up on the shooting down of an airliner post. Other than the recordings on airdisaster.com, are there any ATC recordings telling of the shutting down of FAA airspace?

I'm not looking for recordings to the actual aircraft/crew involved. Just "stories" of the day, if you will.
I'm not a real aeronautical engineer, I just play one on Airliners.net.

There was an excellent story about this in USA Today, of all places. They go into great detail about what happened at the FAA that day.

Check out http://www1.faa.gov/Sept11portraits/index.cfm. There is a link from that to the USA Today articles too.

I just read some of the USA Today links; thanks for posting. Are there any links to audio recordings?? And for those of you who were flying that day, what were ATC's verbatim words??? I'm sure you'll never forget.

These are ATIS broadcasts that I recorded right after 9/11 when the airspace was shut down. This clip contains both Montgomery Field (MYF) and Gillespie Field (SEE) ATIS transmissions.

ok thanks Solarix . Do you happen to have any recordings of actual tower, approach, center, 121.5, or FSS calls ordering folks out of the sky?

Infact, those recordings I posted earlier are really frightening.
