Benny prevents airline disaster

Ham radio enthusiast Benny Young who was key to the safe diversion and landing of two airplanes in Amercia during hurricane Sandy.


A LOCAL amateur radio enthusiast has this week been praised for saving the lives of hundreds of airline passengers… from his shed in Castlederg.

The extraordinary incident occurred two weeks ago when Hurricane Sandy was battering America.

Benny Young was turning the dial on his radio when he picked up a ‘Mayday’ call from a United Airlines flight from Dublin to Boston.

The flight was having problems with its landing systems yet couldn’t convey this to Air Traffic Control in Boston as the storm had caused a breakdown in communications.

Benny responded to the plane’s call for help and passed the pilot’s message onto an emergency network of US amateur radio enthusiasts who in turn contacted Air Traffic Control.

As the drama unfolded Benny became the central point of contact between the plane and Air Traffic Control.

By relaying messages from the flight via the US amateur radio network to Air Traffic Control – and vice versa – Benny was able to guide the plane to safety and a miraculous landing at an airport in Buffalo.
