Ah yes - I remember now. You were at FL150 and JHB156 was at FL80. I can't remember if I gave traffic info or was just about to when everything went dark. I recall Phil was also on frequency around that time inbound to Naples and someone from LMML to LICJ was just about to be handed over to me.. I'd get one of those standby power units only SWMBO would probably go nuts if I stayed on line while she sat in the dark! <vbg> bones -----Original Message----- From: jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of FrankTurley@xxxxxxx Sent: 10 November 2005 22:12 To: jhb_airlines@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [jhb_airlines] Re: Malta run In a message dated 10/11/2005 20:03:40 GMT Standard Time, mhlucas@xxxxxxxxxxxx writes: We were all wondering what had happened - your disappearance without permission was noted, you know ... <g> Don't know if it was correct, but Ernie and I were left on channel, and the Servinfo map showed we were closing with each other. We had a quick chat to confirm we had plenty of altitude clearance, which we confirmed when we passed each other. After more silence we decided to contact our respective approach controllers, and John guided me into Naples from a distance quite happily. Amazing what a difference having to think makes! Frank T.
