They really don't need to look at write ups or reports. All they need to do is just sit there and watch for a day or 2. "Sorry bout that" is kinda like a good landing, one you walk away from. It was close but they made it. Sounds like the Pilot got a little irritated too.LOL

Tks, for the link. Better than the story. Kudo's to the pilots for the heads up. I know we are supposed to listen to our controllers, BUT, we are flying the plane.

tough place to work - spent a day in the tower years ago.....scary.... crossing runways are a safety nightmare. At least in SFO, there's only one tower controller and he/she can see it all.... much different in Chicago
