    The full WSJ article is actually available online (go to wallstreetjournal.com and search for "t-boys"), but you have to pay $4.95 to read more than a summary unless you're a subscriber. If anybody here happens to subscribe to the WSJ, I'd love to read the full article. This is scary, although I guess it's good that the FAA is aware and investigating.

    Great, like I'm not already nervous enough about flying to Texas now I also have to worry about some adrenaline junkie air traffic controllers.

    :banghead:  :puke:  :banghead: 

    this botcon will mark my 2nd (and 3rd for the return trip home) time flying. I am NOT looking forward to being on a plane again. :puke: 

    Anyone got any tips for us nervous flyers out there?
