Air Traffic Out Of Control

Jul 29, 2023

This is a 'Go Around' of one of our favorite ATOOC episodes...Going Rogue.

This is such a wild recording that it was worth a second release...


This is a special episode of Air Traffic Out of Control, featuring one of the craziest ATC recordings ever captured.

In 2018, a man named Richard Russell who was a ground service agent for Horizon Airlines working at Seattle Tacoma Airport figured out how to operate a plane, with no known aviation experience, and stole one of the Horizon aircraft for a joy ride as it sat on the runway in maintenance position. 

Listen in on the (barely believable) ATC recording.
