Air Traffic Controllers redundant as amateur radar spotters take over!

It has been revealed that almost all retiring European Air Traffic Controllers 
are moving to the Bahamas and other 
sunshine locations and taking on the role of ATC whilst relaxing at home by the 
swimming pool with their radar scanners, 
making the local ATCOs redundant.  In a strange twist, the latter are 
emigrating to Europe and retraining to European 
standards. A Eurocontrol spokesman said "European ATC is going to cost less in 
future, as the new ATCOs do not demand 
the high salaries expected by the french and other European nations"

(I'm off on a fantasy again...)<g>
