Episode 22 of the Pilot Project Podcast explores the events surrounding September 11, 2001, as viewed through the eyes of three air traffic controllers who were on duty on or following that day: Rob Hogarth, Shelley Colter, and Bert Peddle. Each provides a unique perspective.
What was it like for a Canadian military controller working in New York at the time? What about a civilian controller working in Gander, a town of 9,000 residents that took in 6,000 stranded passengers? How did an isolated NORAD detachment in Inuvik, N.W.T., respond to the changing situation?
We will hear these stories and more in this week’s episode.
