"Downright scary was after Reagan fired all the union Controllers during '81, busted their Union, and replaced them with scabs. Listening to Ch 9, you could hear mistakes being made when taxiing, and the Officers saying "nice words" about them. "
Respectfully disagree, I've been a pilot for slightly over 35 years now, first with the Air Force, and now a very large airline, based at an airport within some of the busiest airspace in the country, Almost unequivocally, all of the controllers I have ever worked with have been exceptional. Honestly, most of the mistakes made have been my fellow pilots, not the controllers.
