Telecomm failure creating tension for NY ATC 13354u
« on: February 05, 2012, 1840 UTC »
At 18:30z on 13354u, NY ATC reporting Paramaribo airspace closure due to telecom failure, now requiring a series of reroutes/clearences etc and attempts at contacting craft that need to be advised. Attempting to get other craft to contact SVW38EX. Not a fun day to be at New York center for sure.

Addendum:  Paramaribo declared open at 19:13z.  Back to biz as usual, otherwise was shaping up to be the wrong week to quit sniffing glue for these guys! ;D

NY does have a bit of a reputation for communications outages.... especially at inopportune times ::)
