9-11 United Airlines Channel Nine

Sun Sep 11, 2016 6:07 pm

This is such a poignant read, I hope others don't mind the forum crossover. It's by a flyertalk poster on 9-11-01 who unfolds his flight while listening to channel nine (pilot communication) on United.

Fascinating read. Thank you for posting that. I can only imagine what it must've been like on the radio nets that day.

Wow......brings memories flooding back from that day, being in the airline world, so many friends, some airborne at the time.....all those aircraft landing in improbable places......stacked aircraft from runway to taxiway.......and then ---- nothing ---- for days afterward. Thanks for sharing it, very powerful.

..everything works out in the end.
