Episode 225 Show Notes
Topic of the show: Today’s show is all about going “down the tubes”. What is going on in the tracon to create the feeling that you are behind, unable to get a second to think, and too busy to do even one more thing? AG and RH discuss the tasks that make us feel like we are slammed in the radar room. We also discuss a recent laser light illumination police encounter, an approach minimums response from the Terps Elf, and more of your awesome aviation questions and feedback! This episode is packed, don’t skip it!
