Johannes' ATC Tracking Thread - [CLOSED] @ ------

First of all, enjoy some introductory trivia.


Did you know that Air Force One has taken off more times than it’s landed despite having never crashed? When Nixon resigned from office and departed Washington, he flew out of Andrews AFB on Air Force One and landed in California on SAM27000.

Gerald Ford was sworn in midway between Andrews and California at which time Nixon was no longer POTUS and his flight was no longer designated as Air Force One. The pilot changed the callsign to SAM27000 mid-flight over Missouri and continued the mission.

With that being said, I think

Airport: KADW (Joint Base Andrews Naval Air Facility)

would be a good spot to enhance my ATC skills

Time: 2024-02-17T13:00:00Z2024-02-17T13:30:00Z

since the base is known for serving as the home base of the presidential VC-25.

Frequencies: Andrews Ground 121.80, Andrews Tower 118.40.

D-ATIS: Joint Base Andrews, ATIS information BRAVO, time 1055 ZULU, Wind 340 at 8, Visibility 10, Temperature 1, Dew Point 0, Altimeter 2974, Landing Runways 1L, 1R, Departing Runways 1L, 1R. Advise on initial contact, you have information BRAVO.
