Chicago Midway Tower closed

Well I don’t think it will be that bad. Although, compared to what I see all the time at KLAX in IF. Well since there is still a ton of staff there and the people flying in and out of KMDW have eyes and are actually trained pilots, I think things will go ok, it’s not that difficult.

Well I don’t think there will be a crash. The FAA wouldn’t approve an unsafe practice, but the impact to airlines, namely Southwest is massive…

possibly yes

i’d love to see a southwest go into o hare

When we had our massive earthquake in 2019 pilots used unicom, everyone is taught to use unicom if you don’t know how to use it probably need go back to the basics.

Since a lot of small GA airports use it you may have never made it past the basics 😂

UPDATE: to everyone asking about the status, yes, they are currently Unicom, according to the ATIS. The airspace has been reverted to class echo. Initially, they did continue flights. Now all inbound and outbounds are stopped, but technically, the airport is still open under class echo specifications
