Air Traffic Control

I'm always stoked to fly on United Airlines (as I just did) because they use one of their inflight audio channels to stream real-time air traffic control communications. As someone who cannot sleep on planes (and a card-carrying dork), this gives me hours of enjoyment listening to pilots and air traffic controllers coordinate their aerospace ballet.

As an avid Flight Simulator X gamer, I'm glued to channel 9 when I fly United too.
