Last night my friend Marc dropped me an email with the pilot’s and ATC’s view of 3407, including the MP3 archive of the fateful flight. Here’s his email:
If you’re interested – Callsign – Colgan 3407
Approach plate KBUF ILS 23:
Clarance Center, NY would be slightly SW of the TRAVA intersection.
A little after 12:00 – cleared to 2300ft, for intersecting the glideslope.
Little after 15:00 – cleared for ILS, 3 N of KLUMP.
Little after 16:00 – handed off to KBUF tower.
17:21 – first sign of uh oh
20:30 – When they are pretty sure somethings wrong
24:00 – Notification to aircraft of a plane down
It was interesting to get this in email first and see/hear the information before getting any other news (I’ve still only briefly scanned the CNN article).
