Here’s a time lapse of my three hours controlling at Boston radar yesterday. Started pretty quiet but traffic built up pretty quickly, and it ended up being a super fun session! Thanks to all those that flew in and those that helped control on the ground, hope ya’ll enjoy!

Runway In Use: 27 (Landings and Departures)
So satisfying to watch all the aircraft labd
P.S. - Anything but SKBO > KBOS.
Mmm yeah you wish, Ill believe it when I see anywhere else build traffic like that ; )
Why only 27 and not other runways. With more you can have more aircraft arriving/departing
Great question! The winds at the time were ~270 @16Kts with gusts to 28Kts, making any crosswind landing/takeoff extremely difficult. There are often high winds at Boston and in situations like these they will typically use just one runway IRL to prevent any go-arounds or aborted take-offs due to wind shear.
No way he responded to someone 😳.
