    Busy day at work today.

    In my line of work it's always a long and stressful day on the job when you see this...

    We actually had the nicest SS agent I've ever talked to today in the tower. Most of the time they are a real stick in the mud but this guy was very nice. Professional but nice.

    No, I didn't want to make any sudden movements. :)

    I flew 1,000 feet under AF1 last year after departing O'Hare. Had a great view...I tried talking to the pilots on the ATC freq but they didn't bite.

    What were you flying and why are you still alive?

    LOL, FDX A300 at the time, though I'm on military leave from them at the moment. I told the pilots they had a pretty sexy jet up there but got nothing...oh well.

    LOL, OK. I thought you were going to say a Cessna 172 or something and the only thing I could think of was how did you survive the wake turbulence. My second thought was how the heck did you get into the TFR? An Airbus is a little different than a Cessna :)

    That silly plane disrupts everything. (no matter who is on it) It is always in the way! As a frequent flier, I have sat on many a runway waiting for this and that to fly by.

    That's a little bigger than the Twinstar I'm used to flying.

    This is my 5th facility in my career and I've worked in some busy places. I've worked Miramar in San Diego (military), El Toro in Irvine CA (DOD) and ZDC in Washington DC (16 years on the job). Currently I work at YNG Tower/TRACON (Youngstown OH). It's usually pretty slow compared to the big city airports and now that I'm in the second half of my career I like it slow. It’s also very close to home and family (Pittsburgh PA). :)

    I looked into ATC as a career, but the more I learned about it, the more interested I became in being the pilot instead. I love flying into towered airports, but most of the ones I visit are un-towered.

    In view of the terrible damage that person has done to this country, his anti-American views, and his frendships with with the leaders of known communist regimes and terrorist states, why in the world isn't he on the 'no fly' list????
