how come the "news" is just never enough? they have to sensationalize and blow everything out of proportion. ZERO INTEGRITY
Why are we flying planes with no fuel ? Is this a monetary issues or a schedule issue that is preventing them from getting filled ?
Where can land on the top of your head idiot ATC
Pilot: I'm declaring an emergency landing. (Final Answer). No argument there
You're right. They should have done that. Once you depart the gate th4ough, your taxi time etc can lag way behind. It was clear to me (formetr121 "airline" first officer (copilot) that the airport closure should have referenced. Often though it is possible to fly faster to 'catch up'. This works 99% of the time. I expect they got into a fuel situation due to this. 12 minutes over a large flight is a very normal happening during a flight The extra taxi time and late departure was the issues dispatch should have taken into account. The pilots could have asked for extra fuel,; but it takes more fuel to carry fuel. The departure would have definitely run very late if they had done that.
No one wants to go to CA any more.
Part of the facts are missing. The Fargo air show was in progress and the flight line pretty much shut down to private and commercial traffic because the Blue Angels and other associated show air craft had priority. Flt 246 was piloted by company execs and their game plan was to fly into KFAR to the air show, but filed their plan late. In the end, the flight had the fuel and their emergency declaration was false.
How did they end up low on fuel? Right at the beginning of the video the pilot told the tower he had been circling the airport.. That is where his 45 minutes of fuel went. Of course, a reporter is not going to figure that out.
Where's the argument? The pilot and ATC were following normal procedures in coordinating a solution for the fuel problem. Conversations like this happen many times a day.What are these CBSN reporters listening to...?
Click bait. Bummer.
Don’t waste your time with this one
where was the argument?
Parrentlyren I missed the memo where this counts as arguing.
Hang on Ronnie !!
Does not sound like an argument
Where's the argument? All I hear is a standard conversation. The pilot was just nervous, no argument at all. Clickbait as always.
WTF..That wasn’t arguing...I want a Refund.
Running out of fuel on a plane is much different than running out of fuel in a car. If the pilots said they only have 3-4 minutes left of fuel then the controller should clear the runway for immediate approach emergency or no emergency. Then again the pilots and plane company should know to have more than enough fuel for situations like this
This is typical Leftwing CBS News. Now imagine what they’ve been telling us about politics? All true I’m sure!
not in any world is this an argument lol
Ghetto allegiant air
God, once again the news loves to over state or over react events. Like here in Florida when hurricane irma made landfall in Naples it was "south Florida cleaning up aftermath of powerful hurricane irma leaving a trail of destruction everywhere". Not saying there was not damage and this is excluding the keys btw but naples on up besides fallen trees, some power lines and roofing damage on some homes there was no major structural building failures like you see with Michael.
What plane is that??
What a joke. All the pilot had to do was declare the emergency but he didn't want to because then there would be a record that that pilot departed without the required fuel. Controller was completely professional.
What part exactly doesn't ATC understand? Pilot is telling them no fuel. The company decides how much fuel, not the pilot. How is the plane supposed to go 70 more miles? Kudos to this pilot! ATC controllk er should have started emergecy coordinates immediarely. Hope he''s no longer in the aviation industry.
I did not hear an argument. Stupid. Slow news day at CBS.
This is sloppy news and dangerous. The pilots and air traffic control both followed appropriate communications and procedures. Pilots are already hesitant to invoke emergency procedures and accidents have happened when they don’t. To elevate this story to cause alarm is dangerous to both the industry and the flying public
The controller and tower chief were not going to let plane in till he declared an emergency!! One tarnish on captains records
Oh my gosh... Kris Van Cleave... please drink some espresso or take something with some heavy duty caffeine - gadzooks, man... you sound like you're about to fall asleep
Arguing? Fake news.
Bad title on this....No argument. Thumbs down....
They should fight behind the hanger
“Some tense moments indeed “ she said. No shame for trying to upset air travelers. Fake news.
air traffic control: and uhpilot: and uh
Hardly an argument.
Typically the flights have at least an hour of extra fuel. I’m a pilot. I’ve even had 2 hours of extra fuel. 45 minutes is FAA rules, but that’s a super minimum.
