4th of July Celebration and
Honoring 80th Anniversary of Amelia Earhart
Join us for Episode 325 in our celebration of a U.S. Federal holiday in 1941, the Fourth of July, traditionally known as
Independence Day. This holiday dates back to the 18th century and the American Revolutionary War (1775-1783). On July 2nd, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later its delegates adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence since 1776.
Additionally, we want to honor the 80th Anniversary, July 2, 2017 for one of our American Heroines, Amelia Earhart, nicknamed "Lady Lindy" who was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. Amelia Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, disappeared during a flight on her ill-fated trip around the world when her twin-engine plane, a Lockheed Electra 10-E disappeared in the Pacific in July 2, 1937, thus we are honoring the 80th Anniversary of that day. Join us as we honor both. Call into the show at 1-213-816-1611tor listen in by clicking below to take you to: www.blogtalkradio.com/capteddie to listen to this Episode.

“Sound Bytes of
Air Traffic Controllers”
We have another great EAL Radio Show, Episode 326 airing Monday evening, July 10, 2017 with the topic; “Sound Bytes of Air Traffic Controllers” in the aviation industry. These “Sound Bytes” are conversations between the Air Traffic Controller in the Airport Towers for both the departure and the arrival of an aircraft directly with the Pilot. You will hear those from JFK, EWR, LGA, MIA, ORD, and BOS.
Air Traffic Controllers (ATCs) are highly specialized, knowledgeable personnel, responsible for expeditious flow of air traffic, and are stationed in air traffic control centers and control towers on the ground. They make countless real-time decisions on a daily basis and the ATC profession is consistently regarded around the world as one of the most mentally challenging careers, and can be notoriously stressful depending on many variables (equipment, configurations, weather, traffic volume, human factors, etc.) As you listen you will hear all sorts of sounds that consists of beeps and voices of pilots.
Join us for this interesting topics. Please call in at 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. ET as we depart the gate, on July 10, 2017. Call into the show at 1-213-816-1611 or listen in by clicking below to take you to: www.blogtalkradio.com/capteddie to listen to this Episode.

BREAKING: Swift Air to Acquire Eastern Airlines,
by Benjamin Bearup, Aviation News
MIAMI — Charter airline
Swift Air will acquire Eastern Airlines, according to an internal email sent to
Eastern employees from CEO James Tolzien. The iconic, resurrected Eastern
Airlines brand is expected to remain and replace the Swift Air brand, however. The New Eastern, which began
operations in May 2015 operating charter flights for
sports teams and to Cuba, has been facing financial challenges in recent
months. As a result, billionaire and primary investor Vincent Viola has been
trying to find a buyer for the beleaguered carrier with the Swift acquisition
or a shutdown, becoming a constant rumor. Viola was at the center of
controversy when he was considered to be President Donald Trump’s nominee for
United States Secretary of the Army, before withdrawing from consideration,
owing to difficulties of divesting of his investments. See more in Eastern Air Line Group News
