[Closed] 9/11 Military Aircraft Flight/Memorial Flight @ KLGA - 111300ZAUG15 and 111900ZAUG15

What about a military fly over of JFK. I think that would sound better.

Eh sure, it’s just my idea of making the event more reasonable

Why dont we whut down all of Borther Americas airports on 9/11 then

Northern americas airports i meant

Edit your Event according to this ;)

You really need to retitle this because my immediate thought is that this event was replicating 9/11…

This is my personal opinion, and does not represent the opinions in ATC Playground Crew.

I think this event is in many ways disrespectful, and I’m not american, so this is from an international, non-patriotic point of view. First of all, this was an incident involving airplanes. Making an event based upon a terrorist attack itself is not such a good idea - when airplanes were involved - even worse.

I understand that there are memorial flights for almost every aviation incident, but those are mostly on accidents and crashes, not terrorist attacks.

Second of all, since this event is located in the New York region, people (including me) can misinterpret the event for a “remake” of the attack. I understand that this is not the purpose, but I can also understand that people - especially Americans - can become upset over this event. And to avoid unecessarry debate, confusion and anger, I think it’s best to not go through with this event. Do not take me wrong, I really understand that this is to remember the deceased, but I can just imagine how big of a debate this is going to be when ‘AAL11’, ‘UAL175’, ‘AAL77’ and ‘UAL93’ start appearing in the New York region.

I’m with you on that. I’m not American and was pretty confused when I first saw the title…

I agree, the title is somewhat unfortunate, although it is descriptive.

This is a very sensitive event to many people, who were directly and indirectly affected by it. Please edit the title to make it more direct and to those running and participating in the event, pls. be courteous amd don’t try and get attention through doing stupid rude s#¡t like replicating the exact 9/11 flight(s).

Attention through achievement, not negativity.

My two cents

Agree, if I were you I would ban the use of those callsigns (stated above).

This is a touchy subject indeed but it is important to remember that there are many things that can offend and be insensitive to many ppl. If we go down the route, then we start removing all Korean Airline liveries (some ppl, most likely vetarans, msg us about that), we would have to remove all german liveries, Malaysia airlines, and all related events.

In this particular case, I don’t think OP’s intention was to offend or to be insensitive (at least according to the NOTAM). You still have to choice to not participate to the event if this hits too close to home.

Again, this is a gray area and we will deal with those things on a case by case basis.

@Jake_Rogers maybe change your title to make it clear that it is more a commemoration flight than anything else.

I didn’t mean to disrespect anyone I live in New York and trust me I know first hand that it is a very sensitive thing for some people. If you don’t want to take place in this even you don’t have to it was just in respect for those who lost there lives on that day nothing els. All I was trying to do was to have a respective flight.

I did not mean to offend you in any way.

I Understand
