APG 127 – Rockets, Missiles and Planes
Just before hitting “record” for this episode, breaking news reports the escalation of hostilities between Israel and Palestinians in the Gaza Strip region, including the rocket strike landing near Tel Aviv International airport, which caused the divert of a Delta flight from New York to Tel Aviv. The flight landed safely in Paris. Several US airlines canceled flights into TLV, prompting the FAA to issue a NOTAM, temporarily prohibiting all US flights into The airport.
Finger-pointing continues in the tragic shoot down of Malaysia MH17 over Eastern Croatia. My good friend and fellow Acme employee Dispatcher Mike and I have a conversation about what has transpired so far, and what we can all learn from it.
