>Somebody must have gotten the head's up b/c there's footage of the plane landing from at least 2 angles plus interviews with pax inside TBIT after deplaning.<
They almost always have someone down at LAX
to do news in case anything happens, a celebrity does something, plane crash, etc. It is morbid, but the LA
stations are there. They almost always stand between T1 and T2
and you see a WN
plane parked behind them.
>Then they the followed that story with one on the WN
/Asiana near-miss earlier this summer. Yay, let's totally freak people out about flying!!<
Were they accurate about it, or sensationalistic? They did catch it before anything happened. My uncle is in ATC and the Asiana go around was a pretty serious deal as far as the controller was concerned. He had just checked out and was promptly decertified and had to go through all training again. At LAX
, that could mean almost a year, and such a loss of seniority that his days off will suck.
