The news of US air traffic controllers being asleep on duty is worrying. The news that one chap was watching a movie? Well I found that somewhat amusing (the 2007 movie, The Cleaner starring Samuel L. Jackson, Ed Harris if you’re interested). Thankfully, no major disasters but I wouldn’t be as lax (or should that be incredibly dumb?) as to watch a film whilst I was responsible for landing aircraft but there just isn’t enough time in the day to watch every movie you want to watch so I started to think about the types of films I would watch whilst keeping aircraft in a holding pattern above JFK.
