yeah I listened to that when it first happened, quite amazing. Shows just how well trained they are to remain so calm and level headed in a situation like that.

Why did they keep changing the numbers? First it was 1549, then 1539, then the rest of the recording it was 1529 :confused:

That's exactly the kinda stuff they teach at UPT, just for that reason. Know where you can land in case of an emergency, EVERY airport or open field/river/lake around you, and know your Emergency Procedures (EP's) like the back of your hand. EP stand ups- if you don't recite it verbatim with no hesitation, you don't fly.

Staying calm saves lives, flipping out and getting scared kills people.

To answer this ?, at that point, it didn't matter. Once an emergency is declared that aircraft is priority, so 90% of the transmission are going to and from that plane. When you are the pilot or controller, your last focus is on getting the right flight number, but rather on actually flying the plane, going through your checklists, trying to find somewhere to put down, coordinating with first responders, etc.

Just an FYI :D
