    New Years Eve 1970 and New Years Day 1971......It must have been something to be on the job during the War Years. How calm everyone is with so many jobs going on at once.....amazing....

          Its amazing that some of the bosses are calm and rolling with the punches. A few others are "losing it" a bit. The dispatchers are squared away ... "I can only answer one of ya's at a time!" How awesome is that!

          I have a friend who is a retired Captain from L31 from the 60's and 70's. The stories are INCREDIBLE! But nothing like listening in, like the link provides. Good job....

            Yeah, the radio did get pretty busy at times. Now we have MDTs and CADS to ease the burden on the radio and dispatchers. Too bad when all hell breaks lose, the computers run home to mommy.

                          no, I'm not stirring the pot. I literally cannot understand alot of what they're saying. I can make out some bits and pieces, but thats about it.
