This Is NOT the Time for a Joke!

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating an air traffic controller at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport last week. 

The pilot of a Delta 777 was coming in for a landing and only about 1000 feet off the ground when the air traffic controller told him to “go around” – meaning the pilot should abort the landing and circle the airport.
Seconds later, the controller told the pilot he was only kidding, but it was too late – the pilot had already pulled up.

The FAA says it won’t discuss any potential discipline until the investigation is complete.

Here’s an idea. Let’s have the air traffic controller duct-taped to a baggage carousel, and everyone on board that plane – the pilots, the flight attendants and all the passengers – get to hit the guy with some wet noodles.

Check out WXIA Atlanta’s timeline of the incident, including the audio of the controller's instructions.
