I90 Overload FNO
« on: August 12, 2017, 12:19:53 PM »


Did I hear someone talking about the I90?

Come join ZHU as we overload the I90 (Houston Approach Sector) and feature traffic from KIAH and KHOU!

Our controllers will be online from 2355z-0400z (1855-2300 CST).

I think it's more to do with the prospect of tacos.

Timelapse as requested by one of the controllers:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjU-39JILiQ

First one featuring a tweak to the math and every minute position updates rather than variable between 2 and 10 based on aircraft speed.

Thanks Hawton! I missed this event due to bourbon duties in Nashua. It looked pretty good judging from the time-lapse.
