>Is this some kind of joke, KLM? I've been swamped to death by other flights today.
There was a three-way aircraft collision at Sumire City International Airport in which a landing Airbus T-boned two taxiing Boeing 777-9 jumbo jets, driving them into a passenger terminal. Over 3589 fatalities have been reported, breaking the record for aviation disasters previously held by 9/11. Sumire has declined to comment...

Give the man a break, it had been a very bothersome day with many delays. 583 lives is a minor price to pay for inconveniencing a tenured captain.

can you even into aviation lore?
There should be an offshoot of Robert’s Kinoplex called Robert’s Airport.

There are so many sneaky references to plane accidents it’s amazing

Do flight regulating bodies really?

If anything, this disaster is proof that we are long overdue for modernization of ATC (I know this happened decades ago, but ATC is still basically the same). Every IFR plane should know the exact location of other planes and be able to determine their intentions without speaking a word. The vast majority of aircraft disasters involve a misunderstanding with ATC and yet the pilots are always the ones further burdened with more regs.
There's a bit more nuance to it I believe.

Communication equipment of the time did not properly allow for multiple speakers on the same channel to speak at the exact same time. I'm a bit rusty on this specific case, but I think some warning/clarification messages that could have prevented the accident were literally lost over the air.

This issue was subsequently solved.
>This issue was subsequently solved.

I don't think HAM radio-ing to other pilots/ATC when the whole thing could be simplified to some text menus that send your aircraft ID and intentions direct to ATC and have them send instructions back that can be easily read and referred back to is "solved". ATC is at least 40-50 years out of date compared to what it could and should be. An app on a burner smartphone could run circles around current ATC methods.
The root cause was an irritated pilot rushing to get off the ground because of hours-of-service limits. Yes, we should regulate pilots more when the root cause of the accident was the pilot. The US should have sent a few dozen nukes directly at the Netherlands in response.
If you're talking about running some SDR set up to imitate/spoof aircraft comms, yeah that's probably possible now but not with a smartphone.

You'd need a decent SDR and you'd need to reverse engineer the signal to be able to imitate it, all doable. Then you need enough transmit power. That's also about the time they're going to start looking for you and they take that shit real serious.

But I agree, civilian aviation is archaic by todays standards.
Then maybe the hours-of-service limits shouldn't be written in such a stupid way that waiting for a plane to clear the run way creates a massive fiery explosion.

Why did they redirect flights from other airports TO an airport with zero visibility due to fog?
Bomb threat
