He says some of you who are interested (and ghoulish, I might add) can figure out how to watch the radar screen as the plane flies over the city and then see it suddenly disappear off screen. I was enthused about linking it till he had me watch it then I thought better of it because it gives me the creeps, frankly, but here I am doing it for those of you who are interested.
Here's Mr. Z's info : These are screen shots from “Airport Monitor 2.0”. In the first picture; clicking in the text on the reddened “Airport Monitor 2.0” will bring the airport monitor for La Guardia up. Putting in the date (1/15) and the time (15 hours 26 minutes) and then clicking on appropriate buttons will bring up a continuous flight path of the plane until it disappears from the radar screen.
He says you have to 'wiggle around with it a bit' and it will ultimately appear. (it won't for me, but if you're really interested, maybe you can figure it out.) I watched wondering "What was that poor pilot thinking as he crossed the bridge and went over water......?" He probably didn't have much time to think; that's why we need great pilots with so much experience they do what's right by rote.
God bless Sully.
