Yup. Over the top displays of pseudo patriotism get annoying. I will say that if there is a day to commemorate 9/11 it is today. I say this every year and all the people who think a yellow ribbon on their car is supporting the troops get offended. But while we should never forget 9/11, it's time to move on. If we had dwelled on pearl harbor half as long as we have 9/11 WW2 would have been a cake walk for the Japanese. Let's quit feeling sorry for ourselves and try to be great again.Thank God they do stuff like this, because I was really at risk of forgetting that day altogether.
Sorry, I just get irritated at the circus that is 9/11 each year. What should be a day of quiet reflection is anything but anymore.
Not sure about approach but at the center we still have to keep our standard Sep plus some extra room now for overtake. Before we would run them in the gate at 6-7 miles in trail with speeds assigned, same altitude. Now jets can be at any range of altitude, depending depending on the procedure, with the possibility of major overtakes. This has lead to requiring 12-15 miles in trail prior to saying decend via vs the old 6-7 all the way with speeds.Why don't you like them? Two magic words, and you have no responsibility for miles.
