A real life Pushing Tin at JFK

The chaos on the runways at J.F.K. airport can be dramatic from time to time. For a sampling, listen to this audio clip. It's a recording of a tough-talking "New Yawker" who's a ground controller. His job is to choreograph the movement of airplanes on the tarmac. But on this day, he's nearly overwhelmed, sounding completely confused about where the planes are.

Luckily, he isn't directing planes in the sky. If he was, we wouldn't have shared an audio clip with you because it would have been too frightening!
