The Russians do have a sense of humor.


Regardless of what Manson thinks.

This framegrab from video, provided by CNN, shows a graphic indicating the large number of commercial flights affected by a communication failure at a Georgia facility that processes flight plans for the eastern half of the United States, Tuesday, Aug. 26, 2008. FAA spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen says there are no safety issues and officials are still able to speak to pilots on planes on the ground and in the air.

Makes you wonder, dosen't it? There could be a reason to ground the flights other than computer problems. We will never know for sure. God I hate being so cynicial! We have no choice.

Ok, I have read and reread all the news on this and I still dont know anything more than - There are major computer problems, but nothing is wrong...
Hellooooo?

I dont know what is wrong, but it is painfully obvious that someone is messing with something they shouldnt be.

I have been waiting for Pres. Bush to make this speech I have been hearing about since the big news alert at noon. Its not very comforting to see this instead of him. And that says a lot. Your first thought was of 911 mine was of pearl harbor, but they said the radar is fine as is everything else.

So, what is this problem that... isnt? Im so confused.

Being on edge and a borderline paranoid with everything happening with Russia, can this be a precursor to something? A new 9/11 situation? plucky is scared.

I don't get this,, now they say they can actually TALK to the pilots ??? (in the quote provide from this post)

I thought the reason for concern originally was they could NOT but that they still had them on radar????

.....proves how antiquated the U.S. infrastructure system is:


Problems at the same Georgia facility in June caused severe delays throughout the system.


www.avweb.com...


With hours of flight delays due to computer glitches over the weekend and today’s scary and sketchy report about five near-collisions above New York airports, the state of the nation’s air traffic control system is getting its share of attention.


thelede.blogs.nytimes.com... (6/11/2007)

Another update:


A failure in the agency’s flight plan processing system, called NADIN, took place around 1:25 p.m. Eastern Time, an F.A.A. spokesman, Paul Takemoto said.

The most seriously affected were Logan International Airport in Boston, Hartsfield Airport in Atlanta, and O’Hare and Midway airports in Chicago.

all looks ok here at Kansas City, I went to the website to see how the flights were going today, all are on time, there was one leaving here at 4:12 pm CST, so I wouldn't get too worked up about it. www.flykci.com...

I just wanted to post a link to a thread I started back in September of '06

www.abovetopsecret.com...

One of the links posted above mine it talked about the 5 near misses over New York. It blames the lack of funding for air traffic controllers. In that thread that I just posted the link to, it talks about how congress cut their budget reducing the amount of eyes in the skys to a disturbing level, and how the air traffic controllers tried to keep this from happening. No one thought this was a big deal at the time. Well, those who were getting ready to retire, retired, and they did not hire any more air traffic controllers. Apparently they are not getting much needed updates either.

Just wanted to provide proof before I point my finger at our govt. for this one.

Bro? I am a girl, sir! I thank you for trying to calm me down, but please, address me as a girl.

Is this thing remedied yet? Any planes fall out of the sky? NORAD stand down?

Here is an update CNN


The FAA said the source of the computer software malfunction was a "packet switch" that "failed due to a database mismatch."



I especially loved this part


The flight delays drew new criticism for the Federal Aviation Administration, which has been scrutinized over air traffic controller staffing levels and inspection standards for its ground-based equipment.


Who's fault is that????

Good story but its BS, Look what was going on at Portland Oregon PDX, The army special ops and the navy seal's were out in force all over Portland and the airport rumor's have it that some one has got SA2's or stingers and are going to use them.
