Re: Very disturbing interaction between ATC & Pilot...

Possibly a lack of understanding of what the pilot was experiencing...An emergency was declared, I'm not in a position to judge if that was necessary, but I believe the controller could have been more professional and empathetic.

No, but PBA operated it as N136PB, known affectionately as "Old 36".

I worked for ANE back in 1973-74 we handled PBA. I wonder if that one was there at that time...

I’m at DEN right now and I see a 763 to ORD today as well. Is this now part of the schedule? It’s probably been five or six years since 767s have made regular appearances at DEN.


The 763 you saw today was just an equip sub.
