Chicago Peak Hour ATC Tower Timelapse

Chicago Peak Hour

After spending a few weeks on radar, I decided that it’s time to go back and do some local controlling, which I did today at Chicago O Hare. With 3-5 aircraft landing and departing every 15 seconds as seen in the video, it sure was a hectic session, but I really enjoyed the session and I feel that this was one of my favourite local sessions to date, with my fellow ATC controllers constantly coordinating to ensure a safe and smooth traffic flow environment. As such, I have complied a time-lapse for you to enjoy!
