Tower to Pilot

by Dan Campion

“Why are U.S. airlines concerned about 5G?

“Controlled flight into terrain”
Aviation jargon for “an accident in which an airworthy aircraft, under pilot control, is
unintentionally flown into the ground, a mountain, a body of water or an obstacle”

The FCC could not agree
Entirely with the FAA
On how to implement 5G.
The airlines fear wavelengths may stray

So 5G just might interfere
(Unlikely, but no guarantee)
With Flight XY’s altimeter.
Who’ll take the 1st test flight? Not me.
