A few minutes ago, I spawned as an American 777-300ER into London-Heathrow. I filed a flight plan to Philadelphia, as I waited for my turn to pushback. This was on the Training Server (I spend most of my time on Training Server, even if I can still enjoy an experience on Expert Server as a Grade 3).
After I was given my turn to pushback, the ATC cleared me to taxi, so I taxi over to runway 27L. I changed frequencies to tower, and he told me to hold short of Runway 27L.
There was one dude in an Airbus A321 ahead of me, and he was Grade 3; there was a Grade 2 Airbus A380 behind me.
I was forced to hold short for THIRTY MINUTES with terrible ATC conditions.
Suddenly, as if planned, everybody ahead of me and behind me blasted in retaliation onto the runway together, passing like ghosts through me. I was like, “What the heck!?”.
After rushing to take off when the ATC gave me clearance, I just quit. I finally said, “I am NEVER flying out of or into London-Heathrow again on Training Server. This is RIDICULOUS.”
That is why we need more ATC forces like TSATC. We need this crap to stop happening.
Who is with me!?
