SWA Deverts from KMDW
      #430966 - 09/23/16 03:40 PM

SWA1045 deverts from KMDW to KMKE when there was no response from the KMDW tower.

Where are those PATCO folks when you need a controller? It wouldn't take Bob Poli long to get this mess straightened out. :)

Pilot: We tried them on guard, we got dispatch and company all trying to call them on the landline.

Regional controller: Yeah we are trying to get ahold of them too, they are trying to get the city out there now I think maybe even the cops. I'm not really sure.




Seems to rule out minor (single channel) equipment failure.

Out of curiosity, how many people are typically in a tower at that time? I saw one suggestion that maybe someone got locked out.

KMBS approach closed about 7pm last night, early, due to lack of staff. (!)
