The US is investigating an air traffic controller who slept as planes landed in Washington. The country’s aviation chief said he was “outraged” after the employee fell asleep on the job, leaving planes to land in the capital without airport guidance.
This story sounds a bit dubious. I cannot see the authorities allowing only one controller on duty – what happens in the event of an emergency, e.g. heart attack? Something doesn’t ring true here. This isn’t Maputo Airport.
