Air Traffic Control Tower in Operation

Officially October 20th is International Day of the Air Traffic Controller – a day to recognize all that those folks do and to say thanks if you get the chance.

Here is a nice article from AOPA that tells you all about the day, why this particular date was chosen and a bit of history about how Air Traffic Control got started – hint: Archie League, a beach umbrella and a pad and paper.
