You’d hope that while flying fast and low through the air in a metal capsule that someone had your back when it was your time to land…looks like someone missed the memo.
According to many sources, this kind of napping/non-responsiveness has been taking place regularly for quite some time and is just now being brought to the forefront and showcased, which is why we have so few markers on the map. I’d like to tap into some historical FAA data for the past couple of years to see what kind of patterns may emerge.
If we missed any air traffic control location(s) with sleeping incidents that you know of, please leave a comment with an article link and we’ll update the map.
