Isn't it amazing?

Note to self, don't be an ATC!

They say it is the most high stress job in the world.

Crazy huh?

Is that a red UFO pulsing eerily in the top-right corner of the first picture?

Interestingly, the whole ATC structure in the US will undergo a radical transition next month. My aircraft, the FA-18, used to fly up into the 40 thousands. Now, we will be limited by FAA rules to less than flight level 290 (29,000') due to our lack of a certain FMS/GPS system. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif On the whole, however, it is a good move as cross country flying above that altitude will be much simpler.
