Yes, that's my understaning. National Emergency Airborne Command Post or NEACP was the A/C also known as the Dooms Day plane. What I found interesting about the recording, other than the rush to get it in the air, was that the A/C never requested (nor did ATC grant) clearence to DC. I guess this was granted later and not captured on the recording.E4B,,niknamed the DoomsDay Plane,,or it that another/different one?
I retired from AT&T and we handled the "orderwire" circuits for Offutt. When any changes had to be done to their Private Lines, we had to coordinate the down time when the plane was on the ground. We normally had a 15 minute window to do the work, test and turn it back up. We had "test points" in the central offices where we could "tap" in on the line and monitor for service conditions. No one I ever knew would jeopardize their job to actually tape their circuit or any other PL. In the 80's, it was voice in the clear. It would have been next to impossible for anyone on the outside (of Telco) to be able to tap into their Private Line. Most likely, the recording had to come from Offutt itself or someone who had a radio up on that frequency.Wirelessly posted (BlackBerry8530/18.104.22.1683 Profile/MIDP-2.1 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/105)
I'm curious as to how the voice orderwire audio has been gotten.
Correct.Just to clarify since i am not good at all with listening to air lingo... the pilot was requesting to take off, the air traffic controller asked for flight plan info which im guessing is a standard protocol? the pilot responded saying they just need to get airborne, then ATC stated he would get them clearance and the pilot pretty much told him to forget the clearance and get him in the air??
