[Ben]:Air Traffic Control loves Biden Discuss This [0 comments so far] View Comments
A coworker likes to listen to the Air Traffic Control radio sometimes. Today, Veep Biden is in town and is causing a lot of traffic on the radio. His presence has forced all other air traffic into holding patterns. Several flights have diverted to Cincinnati due to low fuel and being told they could not be authorized to land in Indianapolis.

A pilot got on the radio and asked with more than a little frustration how long the VIP would be here because the pilots aircraft had only 15 minutes of fuel before it would have to divert to another airport. Air Traffic Control notified him that they didn't know and weren't calling the shots. Someone came on the channel and said "He's not going to be leaving for two and a half years".

I laughed more than I should have.
