ZJX Member's Great Flight Assist Makes Local News
Thursday, March 22, 2012
We enjoyed seeing this great headline last week from a television station in Jacksonville, Fla., and wanted to share it with the Insider readership:
“Air traffic controller talks pilot down from clouds.”
When a VFR-rated pilot found himself trapped in clouds and spiraling out of control, he radioed for help. "I've got myself in a situation here," the pilot radioed Jacksonville Center Member Brian Graham. "I'm in some clouds. I need to find a way out. I don't know what to do."
Said Graham: "What I really wanted to say to him was, 'Me too, buddy. Let's get through it together,' but you know, I was trying to stay calm."
